Deep Ruby with complex aromas of black fruit, herbs, mushrooms and vanilla spice. On the palate flavors of ripe dark fruit, blackberry and black cherry, with oak, leather and cacao. Well balanced, fine tannins, slightly savory, long finish ending with vanilla, tobacco and oak notes, aged well, drink now! Outstanding! — 4 days ago
The wine of choice this evening is the 2016 Round Pond Estate Rutherford Sauvignon Blanc.
On the nose there is grapefruit, white peach, honeydew melon, herbaceous notes and minerality.
On the palate there is grapefruit, peach, honeydew melon, lychee, pear, herbs and minerals.
This wine is medium bodied with medium + acidity that moves into a medium + to long musky citrus mineral finish. Let us enjoy this weekend and be kind to one another, please be safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂 — 13 days ago
1.5 hour decant (some fine/cloudy sediment). A monumental dark purplish garnet color. On the nose: dark ripe cherry, spice, vanilla, menthol, red plum, some cedar. Taste: a creamy, rich, juicy, full body wine with cherry, chocolate espresso, spice, crushed stone, and a smokey tobacco medium plus finish. Red fruit and a nice balanced/elegant wine (not a bomb) which hallmarks the Georges III Vineyard. Like how TRB tames the tannins so you can enjoy his wines young or let em age. — 19 days ago
Absolutely stunning. Opened and aired for 24hrs before tasting. Layers upon layers here. Fruit and tannins still here and was continuing to evolve and open when finished over 4 hrs. Really a beautiful bottle. What a treat. Still got more to show us at 23 years. — 5 days ago
It's time for a great Cabernet on this #FridayCabernetfix.
Dark ruby in color with a short purple rim.
Fruity nose of blackberries, sweet cherries, dried fruits, raisins, vanilla, cedar, licorice, cloves, earth, leather, tobacco, cola, black pepper, spices and chocolates.
Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry and very fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, sweet cherries, raisins, vanilla, leather, cedar, licorice, cola, mocha, herbs, earth, tobacco leaf, spices, graphite and peppercorn.
Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a very tasty Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. Showing nice complexity with a great mouthfeel.
Already drinking beautifully, but still young and needs 5 to 10 years of bottle time to mature properly.
Good right out of the bottle, and a little better after 2 hours of airtime, when more complexity comes in.
A great sipping wine. No need for food here 😊
This 8 year old from the great 2013 vintage is tasty delicious.

Marking the end of a somewhat accidental week of higher end (for us) Napa cabs... For me this is the best of the bunch, but Linh preferred the heitz Martha's slightly
Hard to believe this was a 05, no browning at the rim
Intense aromas of fresh and dried red cherry, cassis, blackberry. Intense savory notes of cigar smoke and dried leaf, dry earth, licorice
Palate is lifted but full bodied with medium + tannin and at least medium acid (definitely moreso than the heitz). Confirming the nose but juicier. Long finish of fruit
This was insanely fresh and I feel like it has 10 years until its peak. Blew us all away — 11 days ago
