Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1999

Hard to believe how well this is drinking after 21+ years. Obviously on its downslope, but the balance, depth of flavor, and persistence was really surprising. Easily one of the 1999 Napa cabs that was built to last. If you still have one of these in your cellar, do yourself a favor and enjoy! — a day ago

The Lion Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

This wine pairs perfectly with a ribeye especially right after you just ate a nice juicy piece. It’s a bit in the dry side but it has a big berry flavor with some, I think, espresso flavor when it’s still a bit cool. That changes over to a chocolate flavor on your cheeks but also seemed to slip away after it warmed up further. The berry flavor lingers in your mouth along with the dry finish so that’s nicer than most dry wines. Overall it has a lot of depth and is pretty fun to taste. Since it was $150 and a dry wine, I tended to rate it a bit down since I’m not into dry wines and probably better wines for less. I rate it a A-/B+ because of the above. — a month ago
