Diamond Creek Vineyards

Red Rock Terrace Cabernet Sauvignon 2000

I can count the number of 2000 vintage bottles I’ve had on one hand, avoided like the 98’s.
Great cork for 20 year Napa,, juice isn’t too shabby either. But definitely not a top vintage. Parker 87 back in the day.
Worth the gamble at $100.00

Exactly why I skipped it, I have 1 more 2000 experiment left, Chappellet Pritchard hill then I’ll decide whether to venture back to 2000 again.

Beringer Vineyards

Private Reserve Napa Valley Chardonnay 2016

The 2016 ‘Private Reserve’ Chardonnay by Beringer is a stunning wine by superstar winemaker Mark Beringer. Sourced from the Gamble Ranch Vineyard in the Oakville AVA, this wine starts off with beautiful aromas of apricot creme brulee, vanilla cream and kumquat with macadamia nut. The palate is plush and shows a seductive mouthfeel as the wine unveils vanilla cream, buttered popcorn, white peach, butterscotch and roasted pineapple flavors. Seductive and rich, yet beautifully balanced and layered, this is a complete wine by Beringer that will cellar marvelously for the next fifteen years. Drink 2019-2033- 94 — a year ago
