Holloran

Le Pavillion Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Palmer Emmitt
9.0

Some Burgundian soul on this for sure with its low alcohol, vibrant acidity, and layer of barnyard funk atop singingly pure raspberry fruit. The earthiness fades with air (and is nearly gone by day two) leaving a well-balanced, exceedingly drinkable, and very pretty wine. — 9 days ago

Caravina Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

This is the third time that I’ve had the pleasure of drinking the 2005 Caravina over the last year and it continues to be a stunner. It pours a dark garnet with no color variation however, this bottle was throwing an enormous amount of sediment. The bouquet is powerful with a lovely mix of dark fruits; currants and plums with sweet pipe tobacco, leather, and mushrooms. The palate is decadent with a very forward attack and layer upon layer of fruits, baking spices and earthier secondary characteristics. Finish is dry, long and super satisfying. Impeccable balance. Would be a deft pairing for most hearty meals but a winner on its own. I have to believe these are drinking at or near peak but if this bottle (and the previous two for that matter) is representative, that peak may last for many years to come. Hard to believe this isn’t their Grand Vin. — 15 days ago
