I was semi-taken aback by this wine. Great aromatics right off the bat...crushed potpourri, ripe black cherries, licorice and some cedar. Still showing nice acidity at 7yrs young. What I found interesting was, based on the aromatics and front palate (ripe red and black fruits, plum and peppercorn spice), I expected the mid-palate to be more rich/flavor packed. Seemed a touch hollow. Finish turned to the savory side with herbal spice, and more underbrush/cedar. I have always enjoyed the ME Klopp Ranch Pinot (and SauvBlanc) but I’d have to try this again to see if my notes were consistent. — 13 days ago

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Good news: same great juice with fantastic QPR, especially for Napa.
Bad news: the new label is awful. Just horrendous. It went from a bottle I’d show off next to the decanter to one I want to hide.
