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

Ashes & Diamonds...blast from the past! Retro style. Son of Darioush is the owner here. Open until 7PM...definitely aiming towards us Millennials. This was their most left bank Bordeaux-style wine. Loads of red & black underripe fruit with mushroom, truffle oil, plum, and cigar smoke. Smooth yet structured. All of their wines are definitely a throw back to a different era.

What an unexpected surprise. Was turned on to this and thankful i was. New world wine, with wonderful mouthfeel that keep going down the pallet. Typical Paso Robles structure. Love this — 17 days ago

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

Loire Valley meets Napa. Very stewed red fruits with savory and herbal components like tomato, old black cherry, cherry pipe tobacco, and a small hint of pepper down the middle. We ended up buying one to take to dinner and more fruit shows after it gets some air.

Grand Vin No 1 A & D Vineyard Red Blend 2014

The 2014 seems very well constructed. Rainier cherries. Maybe soaked in Luxardo. But with a hand of restraint. Softness throughout. — 2 days ago

Solid. Merlot and CF blend. It’s very floral with loads of potpourri, tobacco, tar and red fruit. High acidity and light on the palate. Fun.

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

Bay leaf, herbal, more underripe red & black fruits and very little oak. Lean. Didn’t pick up much Rutherford “dust” here.
