Perhaps a little past prime, but these two Alexes from the mid 90s are so wonderfully elegant. — 15 days ago

Monticello Vineyards (Corley Family)

Corley Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Good, not too much tannin, but a little past it’s prime I think. Missing all those complex aromas and layers — 11 days ago

Podere Poggio Scalette

Wonderful wine ($70) but may be a bit past its prime. Excellent choice with filet mignon steaks — 7 days ago

La Mouline Côte-Rôtie Syrah 1998

Very nice overall but if I’m being honest a bit under expectations. Aromatically brilliant, with dark petal flowers and earth and a bit of sweet dark red fruit. Just before the finish the palate falls apart a bit - just missing that extra gear. Still an excellent pairing with the steak in the background (prime dry aged rib eye from Hudson and Charles). Decanted for 2 hours but not sure it made a huge difference, didn’t change much in the glass. — 8 days ago

Long Meadow Ranch

Farmstead Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

This is surprisingly in it's prime drinking window now! Absolutely balanced plummy fruit, medium long finish, a smooth drinking cabernet sauvignon with subtle toast & tobacco notes!! Kudos to the winemaker for making this! — a month ago

Got a few bottles of the 09 at auction, so it fun to taste its evolution. Plus, it offers a nice break from pinots 😉
