Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Deep ruby in color with aromas of black currant, raspberries, pencil shavings, and mocha. Also picking up some eucalyptus. Medium bodied and bone dry with high acidity. I think I may have popped this too soon. Flavor profile could open up and the acidity soften with a little age. I have another bottle and will let it sit for a bit longer. — 22 days ago

These definitely need just a couple years to hit stride. His Vicarious is great on release.

@Shay A Yes, his Vicarious is a great pop and pour. One of my favorite red blends. His 2017 Antithesis is amazing if you have a chance to try it.

Amor Dalla Gasperina Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2018

As the race for New World SB get’s more fierce this is a can’t miss. Hit all the elements. Nice cross between grapefruit and lime, strikes me a tangerine. From start to finish a great SB. — a year ago

Boyd Vineyard Oak Knoll Merlot 2013

Pretty rich and intense for a Merlot. A blueberry explosion with undertones of cocoa, plums, and a hint of vanilla. Delicious now but could benefit from a bit more time in the cellar. — 10 months ago

What an awesome gift fir such a fun time - @David L was on his way to his beach vacation but we decided having our shots that we needed to see each other and we did - 11.5 wines and 10 hours later we were right back to familiar earlier times - wish you buddy

What a very special wine - one barrel made and Delectable this wine needs to be added - Center of Gravity - extremely satisfying- omg thank you David - just a baby - decant or wait as this will be a home run in the a few year

@Jason Moore makes some great wines. I haven’t tried this Sav. Blanc. I’ve only had his regular Sav. Blanc which is a great wine and an awesome value. On the red side, if you haven’t tried it, see if you can get your hands on his Antithesis wine. Awesome juice!

@Mark Farrell Only 1 barrel. This will get significantly better in the next 9 to 12 months.

Le Volte Toscana Sangiovese Blend 2017

Decent...a bit hollow. I would rate Ruffino Modus higher. Alcohol forward. Some red berries midway but otherwise disappointing. Drink with massive food otherwise pass.
