Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

@David L Thanks bud for the incredible hookup! I've never had this wine. It's a stunning 2010 which is a vintage that I do. It have a lot of. Pop and poured and am letting evolve in the glass. I'll revisit my notes at the end of the night. Right off the bat......,this is better than the 06 Buccella that we had the other night. A little tight but a freakishly long finish. Big lush mouthfeel., some tannins that I think will integrate over time and beautiful dark lush fruit prancing on my palate.
Thank you sir!!!

Merlot 2014

As excepted for Buccella, this was rich and opulent but no trace of flabbiness or too extracted in terms of the fruit profile. I was actually surprised, in a good way, about the infusion of red fruit here. Cherry liqueur, rhubarb tart and oozing in blackberries up front. Sweet baking spices, shaved dark cocoa and Andes mint on the finish. Killer merlot. β€” 3 months ago

Stood up surprisingly well next to the Buccella. Baking spice, earth, black fruit, and cranberries. A little tart and gritty on the finish but overall really solid. β€” 3 years ago

Yes, that’s my granddaughter in the background 😍
This wine is so nuanced on the nose and palate. Black fruits and mint on the nose, with strawberry jam and brown sugar. Sweet oak notes extend and expand. Regal tannins provide ample structure. Drink now or cellar for many years. This is gonna stand still and further improve. Impressive.

Needs about an hour to open up. Suave bottle, that was fun to drink next to the entry level Buccella. Polar opposite wines. β€” a year ago

Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

So close to being WOTN but just beat out by the 2010 Buccella. Deep and dark ruby red. Tons of cassis, blackberries, and thick baking spices. A little something dirty too almost like a strong cheese. Heavy tannins (8/10) with a powerful body, close to the Buccella but needs time to beef up a bit. Lots of cinnamon, cloves, vanilla, cassis and black raspberries on the palate. Killer structure and lots of balance for being so young. Super long finish. So good we had to go back and order the rest of our allocation! Drink from 2018 till 2036+. Approachable now but needs a couple hour decant. (97+) β€” 3 years ago
