Ryan Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012

The namesake of my brother, this was my first sampling of the Ryan Vineyard. It was outstanding! Through August, this is easily in my top 3 bottles so far this year! — 9 days ago

Joseph Phelps Vineyards

Insignia Estate Grown Napa Valley Red Wine 2004

The 2004 at 15-years of age is still youthful! Well balanced as always, just a wonderful blend, love the fruit with tea notes, oak is fully integrated in the wine pure silk! Held up well against Harlan, Scarecrow, Morlet, Hall, & Rudd Cabs. Just a. Lass act! — 3 years ago

Roberta's Reserve State Lane Vineyard Merlot Cabernet Franc 2009

Loved the wine. Drank Harlan Estate first so it was pale compared. Decant and filter. — 3 years ago

Jordan Vineyard & Winery

Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

I had this earlier in my “wine tasting career” and rated it a 9.6. After hours of dedicated study and several years have passed I think it is appropriate to lower this to a 9.1. Still a high end California Cab but not in the same league of a Harlan etc. — 4 years ago

Robert Mondavi Winery

Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1987

Absolutely stunning. Robert Mondavi was quoted as saying he felt the ‘87 Reserve was the best wine he ever made...and I can see why. The balance, flavor, mouthfeel...just everything about this wine screams elegance. I would still place the 1994 Harlan as the best cabernet-based wine that I’ve ever had...but this is a close second. This is the last of a baker’s dozen case of 1987 Mondavi that I bought when I started my academic career at UC-Berkeley. With my amazing wife just getting promoted to Full Professor...can’t imagine a better occasion to enjoy this last bottle. 🥂 — 3 years ago

Herb Lamb Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 1997

Dinner compares the two best CA wines we had this year. Colgin of anything was even better than last time with no wood notes. The decant was 3.5 hours and this was a more classical style than the Harlan 1994 — 4 years ago
