CJ Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2015

Smooth as a thick silk scarf and loaded with cassis and black fruit. Not near as complex as the Jumping Goat we had but a strong effort and so easy to drink. — 2 months ago

Everything you said about this wine @Mike R Would’ve guessed VASO immediately based on the smell and first sip alone .

Pirouette Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2016

Love this Philippe Melka project at Long Shadows. I’m going to attempt to hold off on my remaining bottles for a couple of years. 2016 is clearly a great year for Pirouette, it’s still a teen at this point. — 16 days ago

Pale lemon with aromas of tropical and citrus fruits with smoky flinty notes. On the palate flavors of ripe apple, melon and lemon citrus notes with nice balance, crisp medium finish ending with stony mineral notes. — 2 months ago

Wow. Such a treat. As good as Hollys Hill Rhone expressions, this is equal parts Syrah, Grenache and Mourvèdre .
I think p. Melka has a consulting hand in this. After being opened 24 hours, the wine is better; which tends to he a hallmark for wines that will have excellent aging potential. Whoever said Sierra foothills hasn’t tried this wine.

Blueprint Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Blend of 83% Cab Sauv, 11% Merlot, and 6% Petit Verdot made by Philippe Melka. Deep Ruby with purple hues, aromas of black and blue fruits with herb spice and earthy notes. On the palate blueberry, blackberry and plum flavors with cacao, leather and tobacco. Firm tight grippy tannins, well balanced integrated nicely with smoky oak, long finish ending with fruit, spice and earthy character. Tried twice, still too young, keep corked for a few years. — a month ago
