Napa Valley Proprietary Red Blend 2015

Delectable tells me I had this exact wine 205 weeks ago. I liked it a lot then and even more now. The wine is dialed up on all levels from perfumes, intensity, mouthfeel, texture and freshness. The core has this magical vibrancy that is so hard to desribe. It is a very noble. But it is unfiltered and there is some texture here and a mouth coating feeling that I love and i don’t remember from last time. Overall it is really impressive. One of the great wines of the world. — 11 days ago

I agree with your thoughts, it is a special wine. I have a bottle of an older vintage (1999) I think. I hope it’s still enjoyable.

Ryan Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

Nice single vineyard from Calera. Restrained, almost tight at first. Rosebuds, red berries, clove cigarettes. This wine has minerality and acidity and feels oh so French. Like licking raspberry juice off a rock. I think we opened it early - still very enjoyable but can go a while more in the cellar. — 10 months ago

The Mascot

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Jan A

The Mascot is made from the young vines of Harlan, Promitory and Bond and you can really taste the royal pedigree here. Still in the fruit/primary phase with drying tannins. Very singular palate with a lot of concentration. Give these some additional cellar time to really shine. 95/96 potential — a month ago

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Belated post. Polished power. Tannins as perfectly integrated as I’ve ever tasted. A finish that I can still taste. A great wine to celebrate another loop around the sun. ☄️☄️ — 4 months ago
