@Joshua Fisher maybe try it in German with a Fraktur font?

Merryvale

Calistoga Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

The 15’ is not as accessible as the 14’, but I think I like this better for its fresher fruit profile with more berry notes. A bit more floral and spicy as well. On the palate it’s a bit more exuberant but is still quite elegant.
Not as good as the Saint Helena bottling, but very close. What a treat!

Had this last night to accompany a perfect filet mignon from the grill. Really outstanding wine that still has a few years of life in it. — 3 months ago

Château Barde-Haut

Saint-Emilion Grand Cru 2013

2015. Plum, dark fruit, minerals and stone flavors dominate in this solid Bordeaux. Tannins are firm but not overwhelming, integrating well with the other flavors after four hours of air. Only faint oak and acidity. Would welcome some more complexity over time - definitely a strong fruit frame to make it all work down the road. $43. — 8 months ago

Hall Wines

The North End Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

9.3

A Hall bottling I’ve not heard about before. Inaugural vintage is 2014. Predominately from Calistoga and Saint Helena (hence North End of the valley). 22 months 80% new French oak.

No detail notes, but this is beautifully balanced and elegant. Approachable but have the structure for 20-25 years cellaring.

Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers!

Sauvage Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

I think this is the best yet I have tasted from the winery. The depth, balance, and poise... wow! New world power with old world elegance.

A side note: I was looking up this particular bottle, I just realized that all bottles I have tasted from this winery were actually not made by Pott, as he did not join the winery as wine maker until the early 2010’. And the youngest bottle I’ve tasted from the winery is 09. Makes me wonder who’s behind these wines before Pott, because they are all awesome!

My 2nd bottle of this 03’ vintage. Pretty much the same note as the first bottle I tasted about 4 months ago, but on the palate this seems to be more evolved and integrated. Complex, bold yet refined. — 7 months ago
