Estate Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Great SB from Napa! Prior notes apply..this wine has evolved presenting more mineral notes a little less on the fruit! It changes everytime I pick up the glass!
Cheers to all and a special "raise of the glass" to all people working in healthcare at this challenging time!

Finally getting around to posting wines from my annual Napa trip from two weeks ago. Always goes by quick! Lots of fun new stops this year.

We returned to Hourglass after our visit in 2018 as the wines are just so enjoyable, but the tasting cave may be one of the coolest spots to enjoy a glass of wine.

We barrel sampled this two years ago, so it was a treat to taste it from bottle. Tied for my favorite of the lineup with the cab franc. Smoked meat, blueberry and blackberry jam, cinnamon and Mexican vanilla jump from the glass. Highly aromatic. Creme de cassis, ripe and rich dark fruits and nutmeg on an elixir and velvet like profile. Hedonistic.

Against the Blueline cab, this showed more ripe and rich. A true balance of red, blue and black fruits. Blueberry compote, graphite, soft oak integration, and a warmer profile. More nutmeg and espresso here compared to the Bluelines vanilla and herbal flair. Fig and Andes mint are added on the palate with a touch more silky profile. Possibly more approachable than the Blueline counterpart.

Finally getting around to posting wines from my annual Napa trip from two weeks ago. Always goes by quick! Lots of fun new stops this year.

Theorem was one of our highlights last year, so we made sure a return visit was lined up this year. Base of Diamond Mtn with one of the most beautiful properties I’ve seen. Over the last 12 months, they’ve added a couple new wines (with more to come from Moon Mountain). TRB is the winemaker.

Fairly similar to the Hourglass SB in that its profile is rich yet tight and zippy. Heavy amounts of lemon tart, limestone, slate, sea salt and fresh cut grass. Lots of acidity here, but there is a component about it that adds a roundness right before the finish which keeps it from being totally sharp.

Tied for my favorite of the lineup. I’ve never gotten as much smoked meat on a cab franc as I have here. Loved it! Not vegetal or green at all. More spice and lift to it than the cabs or merlot, but the flavor profile was similar. Dark berries, espresso, graphite and high percentage dark chocolate. Big structure. Delicious!

Blueline Estate Malbec 2013

This is a gorgeous 6 year old Malbec from Napa Valley.

Showing black fruits with earth, cedar, leather, chocolates, tobacco, licorice, vanilla, light vegetables, pencil lead and peppercorn.

Full bodied, bold, smooth and spicy. Showing nice complexity and mouthfeel.

This Single Vineyard is very fruity, especially on the nose. Interesting and tasty.

Good by itself or with food and good right out of the bottle.

Tasty and delicious. Definitely the best Malbec I've ever had from Napa Valley.

Thank you Barry for sharing.

100% Malbec grapes were aged for 17 months in 100% new French oak barrels.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

14.4% alcohol by volume.

94 points.

$100.
