2015. Fijn glas! Dag 2 nu, en nog wat meer open dan gisteren. Upward potential.

Caymus Vineyards

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

So ripe and big. Goes better with dessert than the meal. Huge vanilla oak with sweet berry jam, there is mint dark chocolate, and tannin, cedar on the finish. Overall when I really think about it, this tastes interesting, but there is a sweetness throughout the entire palate that I do not love. There’s an artificial sweetener like flavor. Really interesting. Decanted for 4 hours. — 5 months ago

Mt. Brave

Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Super structured and tannic cab sauv. While opened too early I can only imagine the story that would unfold over time. Cassis, raspberry jam, pencil, black cherry, clove, and a never ending length. — 8 months ago

The Prisoner Wine Company

The Prisoner Napa Valley Zinfandel Blend 2021

Deep purple in color; plums, black cherries, and oak on the nose; high acidity; high tannins; a little hot; tastes like black plums, licorice (I think), and blackberry jam with a long peppery finish. Nellie likes it. I do too, but it's more fruit forward than what I prefer lately, but very good — 5 months ago
