Blackberry, plum, cassis, dust, soft long tannins — 16 days ago
Decanted this 2006 for a day before drinking. I did taste when I first opened and it was good but after a day it was soft and luscious in the mouth and tasted precisely like what it is, a merlot driven Bordeaux. It paired beautifully with a hearty beef stew and then was great on its own. — 6 days ago
Solid, flavorful California Cab, delivering what It expected. Unfortunately it was up against well-aged Chateau Lafite Rothschild and Chateau Margaux. Sorry Stag’s Leap Cask 23, I love ya, but you’re just not in the same league. Enjoyed the 2012 vintage at the Temple of Beef, Totoraku in Beverly Hills. — 12 days ago
Charles Hendricks last vintage at Regusci and what a vintage 2013 was in Napa. If you’re are going to go out on a high note, 13 would be it. The most underrated Winemaker in Napa Valley.
Dark, ruby, lush, currents, raspberries, plum skin, strawberries, dark chocolate, lots of salted caramel notes, mid spice, tarriness, black licorice, soft dark earth with dry top soil, dry tobacco, used leather, vanillin, clove, nutmeg, cinnamon, withering dark floral, lavender framed in violets, excellent acidity and great structure, tension, balance and perfectly polished for days. — 9 days ago
Very young, but quite approachable for a wine in its youth. Primarily Cabernet Sauvignon (84%) with additions of Malbec (4%), Petite Verdot (4%), Tannat (4%), Petite Syrah (2%) and Merlot (2%). Aromas and flavors of black currant/cherry/berry, chocolate, baking spices, black licorice and roasted nuts. Extremely long finish. Full bodied, nice texture and quite plush. Very silky tannins and wonderful mouthfeel. Will only get better with age. Thank you for bringing this bottle, James W. — 15 days ago
