Had at Promontory. Surprisingly Silky. Dark fruits. A bit fruit forward, but quite compelling for the price. AWM — 2 years ago

Premiere Napa Valley IX Lot No. 045 Moose Valley Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2003

9.9

I am going to post this again. I will only say that my previous notes all still apply but, I under scored this wine 2-3 weeks ago.

I find this to very similar to the 08 and 09 Promontory I posted in January. It’s closer in style to the 08. However, if you wanted to buy a bottle of the 08 Promontory today, it would cost you $1300. The wine was $89.99 a bottle. Given this wines quality and price point, it was a very easy decision to purchase a full case of this DR Stephens over a single bottle of 08 Promontory. I’m just glad there was still enough to acquire a case of it.

Not only is it one of the best Napa Cabernet I’ve had ever, it the best Napa Cabernet value I have ever purchased.

This wine is simply amazing on the palate and turns your head inside out over and over.

Actually had last minute dinner plans with friends so I opened this & the 92 Heitz and decanted a little, but realized these were not the wines to take to dinner. My wife & our friends like a big bold dark wine which these are not. So recorked and took a Rudius Knockmoore & Carter La Bam to the restaurant instead. I’m trying these out myself

Good bottle, just couldn’t say the best Napa I’ve had, if this is what older promontory taste like remind me not to open any.
I’d say 95 points for me.
I’ll take 96 Heitz, cab 97 montelina, 92 Heitz Trailside 2005 Shafer, 2005 Vineyard 29 & a couple other early 2000’s before this. But I’m an uneducated wine drinker. You’ve had many more tastings than me🤷🏼‍♂️,
But worth the experience, thanks for the recommendation

Definitely keeping my other two bottles,

Penultimate

Napa Valley Red Blend 2015

STILL OMG. Had this at promontory itself. Despite being a fraction of the price of the promontory, the penultimate is still also amazing (and expensive lol). I really enjoyed drinking this one cause it was so playful and more approachable than the promontory. Smoother tannins. Black fruits and coffee with that classic mineral taste that is so unique to this producer!! — 7 months ago

The Mascot

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Från Harlans, Promontory och Bonds yngre vinrankor görs detta vin. Frukten uppträder perfekt och polerat. Bra hållning, ganska linjär. Väldigt fin doft. Mörk frukt med viss antydan på gröna toner. Pomerans, rosenbuske och wiengummi. Avvägda fat. Nejlika, sötlakrits, kaffe. Känns väldigt välgjord, har varit värd ännu högre poäng om mellanregistret var lite rikare. — 8 months ago

With K at Promontory. Paired with grilled burger on English, quite nice. Still plenty of tannin, glad I have more of this in the cellar. Floral, graphite ok the nose, and cherry and and a hint of chocolate to taste. Fabulous. — 2 years ago
