Finally getting around to posting wines from my annual Napa trip from two weeks ago. Always goes by quick! Lots of fun new stops this year.

Theorem was one of our highlights last year, so we made sure a return visit was lined up this year. Base of Diamond Mtn with one of the most beautiful properties I’ve seen. Over the last 12 months, they’ve added a couple new wines (with more to come from Moon Mountain). TRB is the winemaker.

This is Theorem’s “entry level” cab. 100% Cabernet from young vines on their diamond Mtn estate. Just like the 2016 vintage, this is made in a decadent and ripe style. Showing the entire fruit spectrum from red, blue and black with baking spices (vanilla, nutmeg), sandalwood, and freshly dipped dark chocolate fruits are all on display. Soft yet well built structure allows this to be very approachable early on but can hold easily for a couple years and still be quite youthful. Not quite as chalky/dusty as the 2016. This 2017 shows more concentrated fruit and a slightly more sweet finish compared to the structured and slightly more tannic 2016.

In the running for red wine of the trip. When visiting last year, I preferred the ‘14 (ripe, balanced, savory) over the ‘15 (more acidity, touch lighter, high toned)...this ‘13 takes the best of each and marries them. This is a classic high end TRB Cabernet from a stellar vintage. Truffles raspberries, candied black cherries, cocoa dusted mixed berry pie and graphite aromatics accompanied by sweet blueberries, freshly squeezed blackberries, toffee and espresso, baking spices, and fine grained tannins. Built like a tank. Superb.

My kind of Diamond Mountain Cab. Medium+ body, thin sweet tannins. Responsibly Oaked with a touch of pre-funk. Props to @Shay A for the share on this one. Killer wine dude. Wonderful. — 7 days ago

Bomber X Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

This wine aged well. Big chewy cab. One problem is the vegetable or grassy taste. It has gotten stronger over the years and the fruit has faded. Just not my favorite taste in a wine — 25 days ago
