Quite a solid effort on first take…I’d need to interview the dev team to understand how it got to where it is. While a touch edgy with it’s grippy acid, The fruit profile and tannin component are compelling. For the price, $17, this should be on Fox radar for every day food utility￼ — 12 days ago
Mt Veeder. Really great wine. — a month ago
It’s time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa.
Inky in color with a very short reddish rim.
Gorgeous nose of wildflowers, black plums, cedar, cooked cherries, chocolates, dark coffee, earth, licorice, blackberries, vanilla, light graphite and black pepper.
Full-bodied and elegant, with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, cedar, leather, vanilla, licorice, spices, chocolates, tobacco, light coke, earth, coffee and peppercorn.
Medium finish with fine grained tannins and cherries.
This is a great Cabernet Sauvignon from Atlas Peak in Napa Valley. Nicely balanced with nice complexity. Already drinking very nicely with a great mouthfeel.
Needs time to open up and after two and a half hours in a decanter, it just blossomed and surprised me. Changed completely, so be patient with it.
Good by itself as a sipping wine, and good with food too.
A Good quality wine, and still young with lots of potential to become a 95+ point wine. Would be nice to revisit it in 5 years. Will age nicely in the next 15 years.
I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
A very small production of only seven barrels.
14.5% alcohol by volume.

Another fab wine by Heidi B! — 19 days ago
One of the most ambitious new entrants to the Napa luxury wine scene sits high up on Atlas Peak. In true “modern Napa” form, Seven Apart @sevenapart is a spare-no-expense project that is the work of financier Don Dady and NFL star Jason Kyle. Andy Erickson of @faviawines is their inaugural winemaker. Deep black cherry and cassis and tobacco morph into licorice and dried flowers and dried herbs on the journey across the palate. Sumptuous and polished, but with excellent acidity and an admirably restrained 14.1% alcohol. The bottle, as you’d expect from such a venture, is offensively heavy, but the wine is good. This is the remains of a press sample. — a month ago
