Napa Valley Merlot 2019

Really have to agree with the wine title- this seemed “textbook” Merlot. Yes, there were some dark berry flavors, strong spices and modest tannins for a young wine. Another bottle in my search to find my wife a plethora of good merlots. This will stay on our list of must drinks. — 2 years ago

Bordeaux Superieur Red Bordeaux Blend 2016

2016 vintage. Selected by Jonathan Maltus (Le Dôme, Teyssier and other Saint-Emilions + World's End in Napa Valley), this is a Merlot-driven Bordeaux Supérieur, in a lightly oaked blend with Cabernet Franc. Red cherries and strawberry jam with just a hint of oak. Juicy and ripe sweet red fruit, soft tannin and good length. Nice value at 11 euro. Has an old-world-meets-new-world feel about it. Who said Bordeaux isn't sexy? Abv. 13%. Well done again Mr. Maltus! — 3 years ago

Napa Valley Petite Sirah 2019

Dark purple color. Aromas and flavors of red plum, ripe red berries, dark chocolate, leather and freshly turned earth. Hint of dill, vanilla and smoke on the long and oaky finish. Big tannic grip but with good balance. Quite bold, rustic and burly. — 2 months ago

"Réserve du Dumas" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Must decant, right out of the bottle it’s a little green, but cassis still comes through. Give it 45 min plus and it’s a treat. Dark black fruit, well integrated silky tannins, slightly dense full mouthfeel with nice long finish. I just love this wine. — 3 years ago

Mise en Place Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Really enjoyed this bottle on the second night. Solidly structured with acidity and tannins to last years, it really opened up day 2 with big ripe plum, black and blueberry. Softened tannins just held together really well. Really enjoyed it. — 6 months ago
