Lyndenhurst Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Trying a new wine at work. Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from California USA 🇺🇸. On the Nose: Black 🍒, plums, blueberries 🫐, cassis (more than black current), blackberry jam, vanilla with some oak 🪵 spice. On the palate very jammy, a good grip of tannin with black and stewed red cherries, leather and blueberry pie. I would drink a bottle of this 😄 — 11 days ago

Happy Birthday Christina & Hedy.


This second wine of Spottswoode was dark, rich fruits, lots of black licorice, round, rich and smooth as silk. Reminded me of 2000 Les Forts de Latour.

Chateau Montelena

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1983

En Magnum. This wine just seemed very different. Not sure this is what I was really expecting from an 83 Montelena even from Magnum. I don't think I was expecting it to taste like a 2010 Spottswoode. Had almost a Bordeaux character to it, which I guess I'm really not surprised at all about that. At first, this wine was FUN-KY!!!! Was itching to get down to business though. Nose was mushroom, fig, cedar, anise. Palate was eventually consistent with the nose but the middle and finish is where this gained a substantial amount of aged blackberry and toasted oak. I really can't say that this wine was a show stopper, but it definitely got my attention in a slightly different way than I was expecting. If you have any of these in 750 or mag, I'd say it's time to start drinking them!! — 2 years ago

I didn’t get to this until it was 3/4 gone, and evidently, that worked to my benefit as this needed some time to blow funk off. When I got to it, it screamed Bordeaux to its core with a bit of flare. This would have been a dead ringer (in my opinion) for a highly classified growth from the left bank. Worn saddle leather, old blackberry and cassis, herbal twang and clay driven. There was definitely a touch of mushroom/age to it upfront, but the mid palate of this was doing just fine. I think these are best enjoyed now as they aren’t getting better. Thanks for opening @Mark Flesher .
