Detroit. Living large with my boys.
On the nose this is complex. Comes across as rustic, with notes of graphite, cinnamon and cocoa powder. Palate is ethereal, as expected. Nice weight and balance. Somewhat dry mouthfeel with medium tannins. Mature cherries blend with moderate acidity. Finish is completed with cigar box. Food will help this wine. Drink or hold. Loving the moment…

I am about post a few wines from yesterday and the day was more than memorable- first off it is my 30th anniversary and spent it with a great friend of mi e @David L at Berns in Tampa - what an amazing wine

The structure of this wine is crazy off the hook great - ant any other or every night this would be WOTN but…. What for it and look what we post next and next and next

Balance is beautiful- nose was mind blowing -complexities galore - drink the 14 and wait 2 to 5 years plus to drink the 13

IX Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2009

A happy Father's Day....this wine should do

1.5 hour decant (fine/cloudy sediment). A fantastic inky dark purplish garnet color. On the nose: very aromatic nose with dark cherry, crushed stone, that sweet aged cab perfume, smoke, forest floor, little blackberry, minty pine, and slight funky earth. Taste: a creamy, soft, juicy full body wine with blackberry, cedar, smoke, dark cherry, black licorice, and a chocolate tar long finish complimented by the silky fine tannins. YUM!

What more can I say except as the farmer says at the end of the movie Babe......"That'll do pig. That'll do."

The Fabric of the Land Napa Valley Red Blend 2019

Celebrating my 1️⃣0️⃣0️⃣0️⃣ wine!! It’s been fun learning so much about wine and meeting new friends beyond the app! I wanted to pick a really good wine for this milestone but I happened to have this one in my wine fridge and it meets the criteria I wanted for this post. It’s full bodied, fruit forward and has a smooth long finish. @Delectable Wine please add this wine to your list thanks! — 13 days ago

Alec's Blend Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend

Nice nose of red and dark fruit. I pickup creme di casis, strawberries, chocolate, and oak. Taste is consistent with nose with good acidity and nice structure. Tannins are restrained. This is a nice enjoyable, fruit forward wine. About 30% Merlot, which is where I would bet the fruit comes in. Could be nice with a number of beef and heavier sauces pork dishes. — 3 days ago

Ontogeny Oakville Red Wine

Side by side against the Hunnicutt Brinkman (GIII fruit), Bevan’s blend was more fruit forward, a little richer and more dense. Raspberry and blackberry morphed into a darker, slightly earthy finish still with pronounced fruit. Less complex than the Hunnicutt but still a great bottle of wine. Really hard to go wrong with either one. — 17 days ago

Napa Valley Red Blend 2007

2hr+ decant. Dark red color. Nose has cherries, pencil shavings, and burnt cedar. Wine has nice flavor, but lacks structure and depth. Medium finish. Love the French influence. — 9 days ago

Estate Limited Edition Napa Valley Red Blend 2015

Really nice blend. 48% cab sauv, 21% cab franc, 21% Syrah, 10% Malbec. Nose was blueberry, earth, pepper and a hint of vanilla. Smooth mid plate with a medium weight and good balance of fruit and acidity. Oak, blackberry and raspberry with pepper, spice and forest floor that lingered for a long time. Enjoyable. — 14 days ago

A new one for me. Really nice medium body. Velvet texture. Bramble fruit. This opened up nicely after a bit of time in the decanter. Bonus with excellent QPR. — 10 days ago

St. Eden Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2009

1.5 hour decant (little fine/cloudy sediment). A thrilling inky dark ruby red color. On the nose: red cherry, eucalyptus, plum, floral, dried herbs, sandalwood. Taste: smooth, juicy medium plus body wine with dark raspberry, bitter chocolate, cinnamon, black licorice, crushed rocks, and a long pepper minerally dry finish....YUM! Power and precision...ready to go years, but drinking well now with the decant — 9 days ago

@David L got a handful of these 09s and will be fun to see how they evolve over the years. Cheers! ....though paid release price (my bad), will have to look for some more at auction.
