Inky in color with a very short reddish/ brick rim.
Full bodied with medium acidity
Showing black fruits with earth, bell pepper, tobacco, oak, dark coffee, pencil lead, bitter herbs, earth, light roasted bell pepper and forest floor.
Soft tannins on the tangy finish.
This 10 year old Napa Cabernet Sauvignon is probably on its way out. Still very drinkable, but a little unbalanced and showing lots of earth notes.
Good right out of the bottle, and better after two hours of air time.
Showing nice complexity at this point, but a little bitter for my taste.
Although still good, I expected more from this second wine from this producer and this vintage.

@Delectable Wine this is the Nid Tissé Bacigalupi vineyard Chardonnay - 2019 Gorgeous Wente clone. Less than 100 cases produced. Amazing - Cali Chardonnay doesn’t get much better than this IMO.
#Jeb’s notes: “In the same ballpark quality-wise, yet in a very different style, the 2019 Chardonnay Bacigalupi Vineyard comes from the Russian River and offers a bigger, richer style in its notes of ripe melon, pear jam, flower oil, and toasted bread. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, it has a beautifully balanced mouthfeel, nicely integrated acidity, plenty of mid-palate depth, and a great finish. It's another beautiful wine from this winemaker that merits serious attention” — a month ago
