lovely traditional cab, balanced fruit, good structure (got as a gift from china) — 4 months ago
Finally getting around to posting wines from my annual Napa trip from two weeks ago. Always goes by quick! Lots of fun new stops this year.
It was my first time trying Moone-Tsai wines aside from their widely distributed Napa Valley Cab, so some of these were totally brand new to me. Melka is the winemaker.
Much more rich and dark fruited compared to the Howell Mountain. This is a blend of vineyards from Pritchard Hill, Caldwell (Coombsville) and St Helena. Very Pritchard Hill like on the nose with herbal crunch, savory graphite and cassis, oozing blackberries and cherry liqueur. Once on the palate, it channels its Coombsville fruit displaying a touch of licorice, candied blue and black fruits, baking spices and espresso. Big, but slightly more approachable than the Howell. — a year ago
Vino que a mi consideración pagas poco por un gran vino, si estás empezando en el mundo de el vino, este es una de las mejores opciones para dar un siguiente paso. Excelente para comida mexicana como tacos, enchiladas, enmoladas, flautas de pollo o res....casi toda la mexicana — 2 years ago
100% Cabernet Sauvignon primarily sourced from Caldwell Block 16 in Coombsville, St. Helena, and Soda Canyon. Aged 22 months in 85% New French Oak. Super velvety, thick, blackberry, black cherries, blueberry jam notes, vanilla, hint of spice, and a long finish. One of my favorite Black Lists by far. — 2 years ago
A beautiful deep rose color. Amazing nose. A rose that was oaked, produced a very creamy mouth feel. Cranberry, tart finish. A real nice Rose. — 2 years ago
So much more sweet fruited on the nose than the Caldwell. Partially due to age. Little bit of toasted oak with blackberries and cassis on the nose. Licorice, ripe raspberries and clove on the finish. Very Farella-like, as it should be. Years ahead of it. Nice pull @Mark Flesher . — 3 years ago
