Delayed 2023 Thanksgiving with the extended family.
Much to look forward to here, all the B-F traits to love, strawberry, black raspberry, plum, white pepper, still bold and wanting several more years to really enter the zone for my palate.
The 2004 vintage is drinking perfectly now, a respectable presentation of the AVA. I can't wait for this to catch up. — 10 days ago
Fabulous. Think. Full earthy. Well you know. Everything you should get. Very special bottle for us. Wife and I where in Napa , valentines week. BTW. The best week of the year to vacation there. No crowds or traffic. We valentine dinner deep into their wine caves. 5 course tasting and meal. Band. Dancing. We won this bottle just for being the furthest travelled. Drinking an 06. That we received in 09. In New Paltz for a weekend getaway. Nov 17, 2023. — 18 days ago
