Dominus Estate

Dominus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2018

So appealing for such a young Dominus. Bursting aromatics of ripe currants, blueberries, baking spice, flowers, green leafs, pepper, iron. I know Dominus ages gracefully but this is a treat to drink already today. — 2 days ago

‘05 in ‘23. Color and depth to the edge. Good color. Blackberry, boysenberry, blueberry, cherry and leather on the nose. Deep and layered on the palate. Dense. Game. All mixed fruits. Beautiful wine. — 2 months ago

Ridge Vineyards

Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1997

Flight #2 of our 1997 Retrospective and these were the thoroughbreds. Presented single-blind; no formal notes. Wine #2 had great color, was developing, fresh, focused, balanced; great structure. One of those glasses of wine you didn’t want to end and, for me, a tough call for favorite of the flight along with Wine #1. I vacillated between this being Dominus or Monte Bello; ultimately calling the former. This is in a beautiful phase of life. Monte Bello is one of those wines that needs decades to show its best. Drink now through 2040. — 19 days ago

Château Lafite Rothschild

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2003

Structured and balanced. Very in place and lightly sophisticated. The fruit is all in check as is the alcohol. Still a long life ahead, but very god right now. You need to lean in a bit to feel it — a month ago

Balcombe Dundee Hills Pinot Noir 2017

Red fruit, spice, tannins integrating but still there. Wonderful spot now, but will certainly last a lot longer. — 13 days ago

Broc Cellars

Solano County Green Valley Valdiguié 2022

Signature Broc red profile: bright, acidic, restrained, delicate, light. Silky mouthfeel with a slight prickle. Didn’t know this grape, but I like it. Love the label. — a month ago

Château Pontet-Canet

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2014

Coffee rye with baked, black currants, dried blackberry, cherrywood, cedar, light pepper, potable, African violet, fig, sarsaparilla and thyme. Grippy, grainy tannins awash in tart black cherry, cinnamon and savory. Young and green with tight tart edges, but open just enough to appreciated the complexities. Underrated sleeper vintage that just might come together. Finish is obfuscated at this juncture. Espresso is my guess, though!
