Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

So, I found this app on my phone and I thought I would try it out ;). What can I say about this one? The average 9.1 rating is pretty solid. I would give it a little bit more though. 10 years old, Oakville, rather right on the money. Definitely not your dark blackberry 'napacab'. Has more red fruits... Raspberry, black cherry, a little bit of binf cherry, a little bit of herb, brambly. kind of felt like I was chewing on tree bark, but I think that was still the oak tannin that was surprisingly still present towards the finish. At 10 years, nothing seems to be precipitating out of this one. Really nice acidity from front to finish. Medium plus bodied. This is the only one I have of this particular wine. Can hold another 5 to 7 years with proper cellaring I think. — 10 months ago

Lol. Thanks everyone. I was looking for an earth shattering bottle to make my 'comeback', then I realized that any bottle will do and I really missed the camaraderie!!!!

Old Vine Napa Valley Chardonnay 2014

A refreshing alternative to the big CA chards. Several CA wineries are adopting a lighter, crisper and mineral style Chard. Light straw, aromas of stone and tropical fruit with sweet floral spice scents. On the palate peach, pear and apple, with soft vanilla spice, rich, savory & crisp. Lingering smooth finish, well balanced ending with toasty mineral notes. Very nice! — 2 years ago
