The Ranch Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Very closed on first open. Black cherries, smoke. After an hour plums and prunes, bright, tannic. Finish. Surprisingly fresh med+ body cab from Napa - nice restraint! I bet it takes age well. β€” 4 months ago

Lost Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2000

Always fun to try older wines like this. Cassis, dried herbs, tobacco, cigar box, soft tannin and acid still holding. Great time to drink. Buddy brought it as a shoe in for a faulted wine and it turned out to be a stunner. Gotta say, sometimes bottle variation can prove to be a good thing, if you get the right one of course πŸ‘πŸ» β€” 5 years ago

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1989

Classic mature Napa Cabernet. A great bottle of wine. Shared with good friends in Napa. Medium bodied, ripe red fruits, rhubarb, and underlying forest floor. 30 % Snowden fruit and the earthiness shows it. 12% alcohol and firm acidity from winemaker styles of long ago. What a treat. β€” 7 years ago

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1998

Impressively more fruit than I thought it would have. I bought two bottles of this and I don't think the other bottle had this much fruit. The cork disintegrated, but the seal was intact. Had to decant and strain, so this one was on a bit of a fast track. Started out with aged raspberry, "funeral flowers" and a bit of soil and mushroom. Picked up a tiny bit of pepper on the finish. All in all, very enjoyable wine. I think this one probably even has a few more years left. But, this is a good wine to pop and enjoy right now. Done by 2021 β€” 4 years ago

I love the taste of fruit in my wine! That’s the best part!

@Sharon B definitely thought this was going to be a fig & ash & pipe tobacco loaded wine. Aged blackberry and lots of it was still the primary!!

Slightly vegetal with mushroom and old black fruit. Low acidity. Fruit on the palate is mainly overripe red and black and stewed; herbal and a touch of iron/clay on the finish. Showed more fruit than expected and is holding up nicely.

Lost Vineyard Merlot 2018

This seems to fall a bit more on the Pomerol rather than Napa side of the spectrum. Nice nose has dried leaves, sweet, bright cherry/plummy fruit, a little aromatic Christmas spice, and gravel. Really inviting. In the mouth the fruit, which is intense but all dry extract, is accompanied by some intense cedary notes. Gets clingy/savory as the finish extends, and a little earthy. This is quite well done. β€” 8 months ago
