Far Niente Winery

Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 1989

The highlight of my 2023 Harvest trip to Napa. This is a magnum from the Nickel’s personal wine cellar. Had the pleasure of enjoying over several hrs. Begun tasting at their underground cellar at the estate in the afternoon and finished over diner in the evening. The last glass reached a new level of enlightenment; the wine tasted young again with bright fruit; in complete harmony with with the acid, alcohol, tannins and nuances. Unforgettable experience. Cheers. — 2 days ago

Such a beautiful cab, everything one is looking for in Napa. Deep ruby/purple. Dark ripened fruit with oak and vanilla aromas. Some coffee and dark chocolate. It’s bold and smooth with beautifully balanced acidity and medium tannins. Good, long finish. — 23 days ago

Joseph Phelps Vineyards

Insignia Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1995

1995 vintage. Decanted and tasted after 1 hour. Still, big nose and frontal palate. Dwindles somewhat in the closing chapters. Fairly harmonious and alive for the majority of another decade. Feel there could be some bottle variation here so wouldn’t surprise me if someone posted a 9.2-9.4 tomorrow. S’life. 9.20.23. — 8 days ago

Amazing how great these get when you give them this kind of age vs young!

Beaulieu Vineyard

Private Reserve Georges de Latour Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

9.4

This is high up on the totem pole, and it shows on all senses. The nose is complicated and dense, which then leads into a rich variety of notes such as tobacco, cedar, coffee and cherries. While it seems to have already evolved into its drinking window, powerful tannins and good acidity provide the hallmarks of a wine that will hold its own for a long time. — 5 days ago

I'm retired, wait Ron, I thought you live in NJ, if so that's me also, as far as date? I checked my calendar I'm available anytime this year, next year and 2025. 2026 is tight though.

Corison

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

2018 vintage. Great, taut balance between the new school and old school Napa cab worlds. Plenty of delicacies here and there amongst the hurrahs, huzzahs and whispers. Not to be missed. Medium-bodied with both nuance and thrust. 9.17.23. — 11 days ago

Her wines are so stunning and she nailed ‘18 when most were way too ripe.

Caymus Vineyards

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

So ripe and big. Goes better with dessert than the meal. Huge vanilla oak with sweet berry jam, there is mint dark chocolate, and tannin, cedar on the finish. Overall when I really think about it, this tastes interesting, but there is a sweetness throughout the entire palate that I do not love. There’s an artificial sweetener like flavor. Really interesting. Decanted for 4 hours. — 11 days ago
