Terra 9 Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

To me this did not taste like it came from the Napa Valley. this is a very fruit forward wine, and I think the youthfulness of this sort of crushes some of the delicacies that might come out in the mid palate after a few years. Red and black fruit dominated wine. Really just kind of has one focus, but does that one thing extremely well. This was not decanted really much at all, as the focus was for the person who opened it to recork and enjoy later that night. I bet it was doing much better then. The back end has a lot of roasted cedar type tannin, which I think will soften and make this one shine quite a bit more in the years to come. If you have this bottle, I would certainly hold it. — 4 days ago

Explain more what you said about Napa Valley / fruit forward please?

@Joshua Fisher the forward nature of the fruit was extreme, almost a little bit roasted and even seemed a little bit generic. I was expecting to see Paso Robles when I grabbed the bottle, as it was turned at an angle that I could not see what it was.

Antikythera Pinot Noir 2015

Wow. This is whole cluster fermentation at its finest. Crazy wine. Deep crimson pour, really really young. Grape stem shows up on the nose along with an herbal influenced, sweet black cherry and cola that also transitioned to the open and middle. Herbal. This wine is substantial. Medium to full bodied pinot, and will go for ages. Raspberry and black cherry to the finish. I'm really impressed by this pinot, but I wonder if the QPR isn't a bit high for what this is. — 4 days ago

Very elegant , pretty skin contact wine from Spain. Not a funky taste that skin contact normally has, it’s more floral notes and deep. Very very easy but Sophisticated. — 15 days ago
