Like Father Like Son Napa Valley Syrah Blend 2009

Nose has ripe blackberry, blueberry jam on toast, seasoned oak firewood, over-ripe plum and moist cinnamon.

Palate has semi-dried blueberry jam, over-ripe black cherry, cedar shavings, moist leather and blackberry concentrate. Very long finish, heavy on the palate, slightly astringent, nose has notable alcohol. Decanted +4H, more time appreciated.

Suggest holding this bottle until at least 2024+, hopefully it settles some more. Expected maturity 2028-33, in proper storage.

Paired to medium-rare burgers with the best ground beef we can acquire locally at this time; Kinderhook Farm (Valatie, NY), I love thee! Lettuce from our garden, BBQ sauce from our garden (2020). Tomato topping needs to wait another 1-2 weeks, this year things seem slower than normal. Southern Berkshires of Massachusetts 🤷🏻‍♂️

Pairs well with one-day old brownies. 😋

@Tom Casagrande They are deep with Syrah (Hill Climber label) and the PS plots are at least as old as their Zin. Fantastic stuff.

Very fine bubbles, low dosage, mineral and saline, long, long, and very elegant. This is among the best if you love blanc de blancs. Enthusiastically recommended ! — 2 months ago

Paying homage to the king of Napa - Robert Mondavi. This reserve is the reference-point in Napa. A model of restraint. The Cubans just came along for the ride. Montecristo No2 (2005) Grand Reserve. Better ask somebody… — 9 days ago

@Bob McDonald, you clearly know your cigars - absolutely correct! We cut that piece before taking the picture.

Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1991

Reached back in the cellar for this one. The cork was totally saturated - was really nervous that the wine was dead - but it was spectacular. Could not believe how well this was drinking at 30 years. And it persisted for the entire time we enjoyed this on Friday night (along with a killer grilled flat iron steak). Totally old-school Napa…and it was fantastic! — 7 days ago

Maestro Napa Valley Red Blend 2017

This is a big bold wine that definitely needs to be decanted. It’s very smooth with just the right amount of fruit and tannins. — 10 hours ago

Lots of key lime, melon, pear and subtle tropical notes. The sweetness is rather pulled back. Tremendously well-balanced. — 15 days ago

Lived up to expectations. Old world in style with berries and some spice on the nose. Palate showed the berries and a nice hint of oak. — 4 days ago
