Very good - classic American ‘Bordeaux’ - strong (14.5%), elegant and long - will get case... — 5 days ago
The final bottle to wrap up the night and the perfect progression to follow up the Cabernet. It’s really hard for me to say which bottle was better, the Regusci Angelo Vineyard or this Malbec from Winemaker Charles Hendricks? However, I would say this is the most, beautiful, elegant and polished Malbec I’ve had. It’s peaking but, still has a lot of life left in it. I can’t believe someone was willing to sell this bottle on Wine.com for $50. It was like committing robbery winning this auction.
The mouthfeel spectacular and gorgeous. Dark creamy currants, touch of pepper, sweet dark tarry round tannins, black licorice, mocha chocolate, well layered baking spices, subtle, savory meats, rich dark earth, soft leather, touch of tobacco, fragrant purple flower with beautiful lavender notes. The acidity perfect as was the long, elegant, well balanced, rich polished finish. — 3 days ago
Unfortunately it’s nearing the end of its drinking window. I would drink very soon! Still that classic Neal nose, but the wine is starting to fade. Still nice cherry and cedar flavors, but finish is dwindling. Most wines don’t last forever unfortunately. — 24 days ago
Monthly 4th Friday is post Thanksgiving this year, so lots of Thanksgiving style wines!
Classic aged Howell Mtn. Wish these guys were still around. It’s got a fruit battle that is wanting to be primary for a few more years. Sweetened blue and black fruit, pipe tobacco, and cocoa dusted dates. Big on the palate. Almost stewed like fruit, but still retaining good acidity. Old blueberry pie, fresh squeezed blackberries and bay leaf. — 19 days ago
An absolutely beautiful wine. Perfectly classic. Amazing supple fruit with lots of refinement and great acidity. Just a gorgeous wine, would never have guessed it’s almost 30 years. Wow. — 11 days ago
Dark inky in color with a short purple rim.
Fruity nose of blackberries, sweet cherries, raisins, vanilla, cedar, licorice, cloves, cola, light vegetables, leather, coffee, chocolates, tobacco, mocha, spices and black pepper.
Full bodied, smooth and bold, with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, sweet cherries, figs, raisins, vanilla, cedar, licorice, cola, chocolates, mocha, coffee, tobacco, leather, graphite, beef jerky and peppercorn.
Long finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.
This 4 year old Bordeaux Blend from Napa is very fruity with great complexity and a great mouthfeel. Well balanced and spicy. Rich, extracted and delicious.
Peaking now and will be good in the next few years.
Good right out of the bottle and better after 30 minutes of airtime, when tannins come in.
I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers, but it is so yummy all by itself. Thank you Alex for sharing this with me.
