Another new encounter that’s surprising in a good way. Dark purple in color with notes of dark berries but a firm acidic lively palate carrying through to a medium finish. More energetic and lively than might be expected from the almost inky color. Only 10ABV! Very refreshing indeed for a red Yet paired very well with blackened salmon that’s pretty spicy! Only 49 cases made. AA13 — 3 months ago
Krug is always most welcome, and Valentine’s Day is no exception. This is edition 169. A bit more yeasty and slightly less acidic than previous versions, to my taste. But if you like the Krug style - which we do very much - it hits the spot per usual.
My wife used to work with Fritz Hatton, proprietor of Arietta wines and auctioneer for Zachys. Fritz always says to have a half bottle of champagne waiting in the fridge in case you need a “midnight snack”, and I have to agree with him! — 4 months ago

Beautiful Napa Cab with notes of ripe black plum, baking spice, chocolate, minerality. Medium tannins and acidity.
Lighter and more fresh than other Cabs that tend to be stronger and more jammy. — 5 months ago
Who knew? A fantastic blend with notes of blackberries, cocoa and heavy baking spices. The flavors are highlighted by the Smokey whiskey flavors from 18 months in the barrel with the last 6 in a jack Daniels Tennessee sour mash barrel. Totally unique and surprisingly splendid. — 4 years ago
