Venge Vineyards

Silencieux Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Always one of my favorite Cabernets in this price range. Powerful and flavorful. Classic Cabernet character of cassis, anise, blackberry, roasted coffee bean, and a touch of oaky vanilla. Highly concentrated. Exceptionally smooth on the palate with lingering finish. Drinkable now but will last in the cellar as well. 2017 vintage on Jan, 11, 2020 β€” 13 days ago

Curious - did it keep it’s same profile after it had been open for a while? My last taste of 17 showed up great when first poured, then went pretty flat pretty quick.

Hey Eric - it kept it’s profile in this case because we drank it fairly quick. But I the past, I have seen wines degrade a bit with too much air. It seems to happen with more fruit-forward wines. I haven’t had that happen with wines that show layers of complexity like a great Spanish Rioja, for example. The Silencieux is on the fruitier side, so I’m not surprised that it could happen here.

Philip Togni Vineyard

Tanbark Hill Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Beautiful Napa Cab presents as a classic Bordeaux. Understated elegance. Silky smooth mouthfeel with smooth tannins. Lengthy finish. Second label - no way! This is a beautiful wine with a great QPR. I decanted 3 hours. Opened up slowly. Has potential to age 10 to 15 years. I love Phillip Togni wines. β€” 8 days ago

Lakespring

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1990

30 year old Mag for $100, its classic Napa, notes from K&L These library wines from Lakespring w\Winery have immaculate provenance and were purchased directly from the original owner of the property. They have spent the past few decades in commercial wine storage and were hand-delivered to K&L and inspected bottle by bottle. As with all old wines the corks can be fragile and we recommend using a Durand opener or other ah-so style opener for best results. The wines may also contain natural sediment β€” 17 days ago

A classic. Graphite. Cassis. Gravel. Hint of eucalyptus. Not a blockbuster but pretty classic profile. Savory flavors and on the leaner side but long and with nice length. β€” 15 days ago

Always very good. We’ll see what the future holds for them with new corporate ownership. Sad to see a pioneer family sell.

Flora Springs

Flora's Centennial Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

We've been sitting on this bottle for 7-8 years and it didn't disappoint. We first had this in 2011 and remained a favorite of ours to this day. This one is just as good as that first one. Classic left bank all day. Earthy, graphite, cedar and leather. Cassis, blackberry and absolutely perfect acidity. At 13+ years, it is showing some bottle age but it is holding up well. I wish I had more of this because it is fantastic. β€” 20 hours ago

I’ve had a lot of Flora Springs wines but have never seen this. Very cool. Maybe I can ask for some at the Trilogy Release party next weekend!

@Shay A This is a tough find. We've been hunting for more bottles of this for at least five years with no luck. We even pushed our contacts at the winery and got nowhere. I hope you're able to try this one day, so much fun.
