A blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Merlot, blended then aged for 24 months in 50% new and 50% once-used American oak. Deep Ruby color with aromas of black fruit, licorice and minty floral notes. The palate beautifully displays rich ripe blackberry and black cherry, a hint of sweetness, vivid acidity and the right touch of toasty vanilla oak, still youthful in development. The wine has nicely integrated tannins, still holds some grip on a long finish which should give way to let this wine age for the next decade+. Excellent, Tasting Sample! — 17 days ago
Attended a Parallel Wines private tasting last night. Very nice and classic in style. Didn’t realize how small their production is...less than 600 total cases. This is their 20th year and Melka has been with them from the beginning.
Fun to try next to the ‘14. Aromatically, they are very similar...creme brûlée, marzipan and honeyed pastries. However, there is quite a bit more acidity here that catches you off guard. There are some similarities here to Aubert’s Larry Hyde & Sons Chardonnay. Notes of honeysuckle, sea salt and powdered lemon bar on the palate. A bright expression of Ritchie vineyard. — 6 hours ago
Steak, wedge salad and the new Scorsese: The Irishman. Perfect even though either Italian nor Irish nor with mob ties. — 13 days ago
Hint of age on nose and palate but other than that, inter grated black fruit. Medium bodied. Tobacco. — 2 days ago
Velvety and nice. Feel like if you spend this much on wine might as well spend a bit more and go with duck horn or sliver oak — 13 days ago
We bought this bottle on our first trip to Stonestreet in 2013. WOW!! Laying it down for 6 years was well worth the wait! Black cherry and cloves with just a hint of leather on the nose. Incredibly smooth with luscious dark fruit and mineral finish. — 18 days ago
