My mistake - opened and decanted and it sat for over three hours - tasted initially as a 9.5 but did not realize it was a pnp - please shoot me to put me out of misery — 5 months ago

Thank you
@David L @Shawn R @Martin G Rivard @Joe Lucca - for coming to Brooklyn on a Sunday night!

This wine is super refined and elegant. The amount of acid was noticeable at this point - and the tannins are strong even after a four plus hour decant. This is one for the long haul. It was cool to taste this side by side with the ‘12 vintage as well as next to the ‘12 regular Estate. All so different yet all so good. Such wonderful wines it’s sad they’re no longer making them.

Napa Valley Estate Rosé Blend 2016

[Tasted on May 11, 2019 at Home]

We purchased this wine at the Checkerboard Estate during our visit. Rose made from Cabernet Sauvignon at 15.1% ABV, yet the wine is well balanced and elegant. Strawberry, watermelon, apricot, honey and spice. Delicious wine.

Coyote Ridge Red Blend 2012

Very nice, with a beautiful floral/herbal nose. This has a sort of Bordeaux-like sensibility and should age beautifully. — 3 years ago

Pluribus Napa Valley Red Wine 2004

2004 Bond Pluribus, not many wines rock my world 1.5 decant. Oakville AVA, still a pup. What a wonderful wine, dark fruit the oak is integrated in the wine, very very nice mouth feel, after a mag of Checkerboard & 1/2 glass of Bond, YUM! What a way to end a trip to Napa, with great friends & wonderful wines!!!! Cheers Napa — 3 years ago
