Classic Cuvée Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Patience will be rewarded but I'm a philistine: drank the whole bottle. No apologies... his is a great, powerful blend of Cabs — 5 days ago

Eleven Eleven Wines

Napa Valley Pinot Noir 2014

Eleven Eleven Wines tasting at Classic tonight. Winemaker is Kirk Venge. 👌

This Pinot was...unique. Best way to describe is that it was as though I was tasting a barrel sample. Reason I say that is because I got a fair bit of oak on this. Different for a Bacigalupi Pinot. Typical black cherry, cola, cedar notes, but the crisp acidity and oak was different.

Shafer

Relentless Napa Valley Syrah Petite Sirah 2006

No signs of age, none. Vivid blackberry and wild flowers on the nose. The sly huckleberry and semi sweet chocolate tempt the front of the palate. Hints of peppered beef and cigar box play the back of the palate. Seductive tannins that show the bright fruit of this classic wine. Powerful yet graceful. — 21 days ago

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars

Fay Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1999

I first had this wine upon release before I really got into wine and have followed this producer ever since...16 years later and it is absolutely fantastic! It started really elegant but then peeled back layers of structure and earth and baked plum fruit. Reminiscent of a Bordeaux but a true Cali classic! — 7 days ago

Eleven Eleven Wines

Chardonnay 2014

Eleven Eleven Wines tasting tonight at Classic. Very small production. Winemaker is Kirk Venge 👌.

This chard, as
@Mark Flesher put it, is very much down the middle of the road. Not pure fruit, not pure buttery oak. A nice compromise. Notes of honeysuckle, kiwi, watermelon rind. Light bodied. Crisp.

Heitz Cellar

Martha's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Fantastic Napa can from a classic producer. Complex, powerful, and finessed tannins are the hallmarks of this wine. Herbaceous on the nose; palate of trademark mint, slightly earthy, rich red fruit, cedar and sandalwood. — 2 days ago

Peirson Meyer

Ryan's Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Wow...has many Sauvignon Blanc classic flavors like grapefruit, grass, peach, basil with good acids...better integrated than most and all of the diverse flavors work in harmony and no single one is over the top. — 7 days ago

9.3

Yummie - Wednesday night and smiles are out tonight - what not to love - 2 hour decant and pop - Singing begins - limited production - love the color- like a purple robe from queen Mary days - nose is tight and having a hard time opening - hints of plum and black currants,

Taste is an all this - elegant, balanced - classic Napa cab

Eleven Eleven Wines tasting at Classic tonight. Winemaker is Kirk Venge. 👌

RParker gave this 94+. Not sure I'm there, but I could see it approaching that score in a few years. Toasted vanilla on the nose...black currants too. Rush of red and black fruits...no blue fruits here. Slight spice on the finish.
