Dark black / red edges. Dark cherry & blackberries with currants. Long legs & pleasing tannins on the finish. Excellent pairing with grilled aged Rib-In Ribeye. Great for 40th wedding anniversary. Looking forward to next bottle on 45 anniversary. — 20 days ago

Between this and the ‘15 Grace Vineyard, I actually think this may have been the better wine. Obviously more integrated and harmonious on the palate with the added age, but the aromatics here were beautiful. Truffles, potpourri, pomegranate, and sappy birch wood. Acidity still carrying this nicely with a wonderfully light and lifted palate, showing more pomegranate, violets, and candied black cherries. — 15 days ago

The best thing I've had in my mouth all day. Fills the empty parts of my soul with hints of berry. Not too sweet, but nice enough to bring home to mom. — 20 days ago

Renovations update - the stairs are in. And is there a better way to mark the occasion that with a Baciaglupi chard? Presents a beautiful, rich yellow color in the glass. Notes of lemon curd and pineapple almost overwhelm on the nose. The palate is multi-layered, and rounded. Perfect tension between the acid and fruit on the mid-palate. Stunning...

Stairs look great, particularly what is at the top!

Anne-Marie and I are minimalists. We like clean, simple lines. She did most of the designs that you’ve seen in my posts. I do the fixtures, fittings, lighting and the wine cellar. Glad you like it, bud. @DavidL, thanks for introducing me to the Baciaglupi vineyard and whites like these! @P A, @Scott Petrus, @Manny Abascal, thank you for those words. If any of you are prowling around in the tri-state area, our door is always open 🙂

I can see that - it looks very good. I consider myself to be an adherent to minimalistic / contemporary design schemes, as well.

Brilliant $17 chard. Love this. Honeycomb and caramel on the nose. Freshly baked bread and almonds on the palate, complimented with apricots and orchard fruits. Finishes with subtle toasted oak. Such a great effort. — a month ago

There was a former time in my life I only drank Chardonnay and I drank this a lot.

Pritchard Hill Estate Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Drinking a Napa Valley icon tonight! A deep ruby color with medium intensity notes of dark fruit and baking spices on the nose. Beautiful tastes of blackberry jam, black cherries, blueberries, vanilla, dark chocolate and cinnamon. Fantastically integrated wine with silky smooth sweet tannins, perfectly ripe fruit and outstanding acidity. A long, fruity finish with a little tannic mouthfeel at the end that says this wine is still very young and could be even better 25 or more years from now. WOW! — 8 days ago
