Happy birthday honey. 🎂🥳🎉🎈Love you endlessly.

Right inline w/ the 2012 vintage. Fruity and light earthiness. I see the critical range of 92-94. It depends on your love of fruit vs earthiness. The fruit loads on the front end and the earth & complexity comes on backend. The thing that holds this back from becoming more is its lack of depth. If you like fruit over deep complexity, you’ll love this 12. 3 hour decant and the truth is it picks up weight in the very end. For this producer vintage, not worth the price of admission.

Great petrol nose. Honeyed. Apricots. Mineral and subtle. Really nice. Palate is elegant and complex with great acidity and tension. Very long and juicy. Excellent purity and freshness. A great showing. — 25 days ago

Vine Hill Ranch

Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

This wine rocks. Gripping wine.

Raspberry and some black fruits. Very dense and structured.

Held up well with heavy Italian food

Softening with airtime. Around 3 hour mark - provides some interesting elegance with drying tannins.

A winner for the birthday queen

Napa Valley Chardonnay 1996

From mag

Pop and pour. A wondrous medium gold color. On the nose: Asian pear, oyster shells, lemon, floral, toasted nuts. Taste: great creamy-chalky mouthfeel with lemon, minerals, tart green apple, honey, cider. YUM! Still delicious at 27 years.
