Coach Insignia Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot & 4% Malbec, deep Ruby with aromas of dried berry fruits and cedar spice. Sat in oak for 18 months, the palate shows blackberry and cherry flavors, cacao and oaky herb tones. Firm tannins, long finish ending smooth with fruit, tobacco and mineral notes. Has room to age. Nice! — 3 months ago

Wifey and I concur with the score. May have approached this too early. Lacks the depth and complexity we have come to expect from this vineyard. Still very good. Hoping that bottle age brings a little more intensity, although it may just bring age.

Day 2 and this wine has has switched gears and developed more urgency. Much improved, so I’ll take the score up 2 pts. This reminds me of a quote “Instant gratification takes too long” - Carrie Fisher 😏

Suck up at Aubert.com Philip Gift is the gatekeeper. Ask him to throw you a bone. However, given restaurants are shut, these wineries have nowhere to go. I suspect they are quickly becoming coin-operated.”

After an epic lunch from @joe leatherwood , a few of us got together for a socially-distanced evening hosted by @Keith Fisher to keep the party going.

After the 2012 Harlan at lunch, Keith decided to continue with the theme with an ‘06. Unbelievably smooth and balanced while still retaining power. Aromatically it is very black fruit dominant...blackberries, cassis, sweet tar/pipe tobacco, graphite and channeling just a touch of bay leaf. Waves of flavor on the palate of smoked meat, creme de cassis, currant, mocha, baking spices and a supremely balanced finish. At this point in its evolution, it’s reminiscent of a high end bordeaux from a warm/ripe vintage. A total treat.

I’m between a 92-93 here. This was by no means shut down but it was surprisingly tannic and a bit clenched. Poured next to a 2016 Fisher Syrah, this was significantly less pepper driven yet substantially more nimble and vibrant. 100% Grenache and 40% whole cluster (which is definitely evident). Plenty of ripe red fruit up front on the nose with underripe and crunchy black fruits, potpourri, garrigue, and herbal stemminess. Nervy acidity on the palate and while a touch thin on the mid palate, the finish here is quite beefed up with violet, cranberry and black currant wrapped tannins. It’s almost juicy, yet an herbal flair keeps it balanced. Enjoyed at pop and pour, I’d decant at least an hour if opening now. — 10 months ago

Broken record, I know, but these wines are just mesmerizing and right up my alley. I’d say this is drinking close to its apex, and that the overwhelming funk you get when young has become more integrated. Olive tapenade, cherry jerky, soy, and peppercorn crusted rhubarb aromatics. Gorgeous floral lift on the palate showing whole cluster flair. Added notes of potpourri, herbs de Provence, smoked meat, mulberries and raspberries. So complex. Thanks @Keith Fisher . — 2 years ago

A few wines from last week’s 4th Friday event!

The sheer opulence of this is astounding. Obviously young, this was actually my first Realm BTK courtesy of
@Keith Fisher . When thinking back to the last stunning 2016 BTK I had (MacDonald), where the MacDonald is more dusty, slightly more herbal and full of tightly coiled BTK power, this was an embarrassment of rich dark fruits, baking spices and sporting a creme de cassis like profile. Classic To Kalon power, with so much to unpack. Thank you, Keith!

@Bryan Kesting : It was, but it was so much more flavor packed at pop and pour than I expected. If you’ve got multiple, open one to enjoy as an experiment. But if you’ve only got one, definitely hold for at least 5yrs.

@Joshua Fisher : It was fantastic! Wonderful stops and great weather. I’ll be popping the Brasswood chard you gave me tomorrow night for a monthly wine group I’m in. Theme is Chardonnay.
