Pinot Noir 2017

Day 3 in Napa in the books! Running a day behind on notes...Napa time runs slow AND fast!

Had no clue they made a pinot. From west Petaluma. Smoky (has nothing to do with fires). More meat notes here than any other Pinot I’ve had. Would have guessed cool climate whole cluster Syrah if tasting blind. Smoked plum, underripe blackberries, tart black cherry pie and savory herbal notes.

Surprisingly this was open and ready after a short decant. Good stuff. Crazy heavy bottle I'm anxious to try the reserve. — 6 years ago

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Elegant from the start with blackberries, plums laced with currants, fig, date and coffee. Moderate tannins and very low acidity into a long smoky finish. — 4 months ago

Day 3 in Napa in the books! Running a day behind on notes...Napa time runs slow AND fast!

Special wine. They are pulling fruit from below Arkenstone off Howell. Has everything Howell like in spades. It is dusty with chocolate, full of flavor from red, blue & black fruits, but has a special “mint” like Andes candy mint finish.

I was not aware that they had a Howell Mtn cab, too. What's the retail, Shay?

@Ron R : It was wonderful. $175/bottle. Not cheap, but undoubtedly well made!

Heitz Cellar

Lot C-91 Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Another 2nd day wine with 3 hour decant. Doesn’t have that typical fruit forward nose like the Sinegal. Distinctive & on par with old school Heitz. Hopefully new ownership keeps this style.
Store notes,

Lot C-91 is a new wine from Heitz, inspired by a very old one! In the fall of 1969, Joe Heitz played with creating a high-end blend of small lots from some of Heitz's top single-vineyard sites. He dubbed it "Lot C-91." Some 47 years later the current team at Heitz has once again taken select barrels of fruit from legendary sites such at Martha's (Oakville), Trailside (Rutherford) and Linda Falls (Howell Mountain), to create this Napa Valley "Super Cuvée." This wine beautifully showcases the incredible 2016 vintage in Napa, which I think will go down as one of the all-time greats.

I had the 2016 a few weeks ago and absolutely loved it. I was too impatient and only gave it an hour

Lail Vineyards

J. Daniel Cuvée Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

WOTN! Yes., you guessed it....another bottle provided by my friend David Lentine! If the Sinegal bottle that we opened is a Rockstar this bottle was Beethoven!! It's elegance and finesse was immediately noticed. Kirk's head snapped back to look at me after his 1st sip and said "the finish on this is long & complex. It has a lot going on!! WOTN".
There's a reason why this is their flagship wine & why Parker rated it 💯! I'm a believer. This was everyone's 1st Lail but it most certainly won't be our last. Stunning., simply stunning. Everything it did., it did Perfectly. Power with finesse, character with elegance, complexity with purity. It was a true experience tasting this wine. We all left this in our glass for as long as we could. Each sip was relished until the long finish was a distant memory and then we took another. I'm going to have to dig deep in my cellar to find a proper "Thank you" swap for that insane bottle of wine!!!!
This truly deserves the title "Awesomeness in a Glass"!!
😍💯🍷🍷💯😍 I'll even throw some applause in there......yes it was that good!!! 👏👏👏👏👏
