Tasted blind. Lees are cheesy, wine is fresh with good acidity, viscous body and more floral than citrusy — a month ago

Columbia Crest

Grand Estates Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Fruitful yet elegant. Can taste the aromas of its Columbian roots. Smokey and Oaky aftertaste, like a thick Cuban cigar. My taste buds are still tingling. — 5 days ago

Beaux Frères

The Beaux Frères Vineyard Pinot Noir 2004

So...I had a birthday a couple weeks back, due to scheduling my regular bottle finishing team wasn't available until now, so we're finally doing it up in my grand, unique style.

Notes possibly tomorrow, scores honestly tonight.

Decanted 10H.

24-Hour Update:
Nope...Kinda fell apart overnight, funky plum notes today.
Drink subsequent bottles in one sitting.

Trader Joe's

Grand Reserve Lot #102 Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Color of bubbly purple, quite clear. Nose of cherry jam, tobacco leaves, some blackberry, and spicy alcohol. Taste follows the nose with some sweet cherry jam note, ripe grapes, a bit peppery, almost no tannins and smooth. Aftertaste of some more strawberry jam, bitter rind, still quite mellow. On par. — 7 days ago

Paying homage to the king of Napa - Robert Mondavi. This reserve is the reference-point in Napa. A model of restraint. The Cubans just came along for the ride. Montecristo No2 (2005) Grand Reserve. Better ask somebody… — 10 days ago

@Bob McDonald, you clearly know your cigars - absolutely correct! We cut that piece before taking the picture.

En Garde Winery

Grand Vin Diamond Mountain District Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

Complex wine but very approachable. Lots of layers. Fruity , earthy.. will please most enophiles and even casual wine lovers. Highly recommend. Enjoyable now, but will keep a bottle for a few more years to see how it evolves. Had this at a tasting with Csaba, the winemaker. So enjoyable and down to earth. Highly recommend visiting and tasting in person to see what you like! — a month ago
