Vice Versa

Le Petit Vice Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Short Rib wine. 👍🏼
Winery notes,

Unique circumstances helped create the monumentally impressive 2013 Le Petit Vice. Proprietor Patrice Breton worked with Paul Hobbs and Mike Smith in the beginning, and finished the wine with the help of Philippe Melka, and Shawn Johnson… Four of Napa Valley’s most accomplished winemakers.

Aged for 22 months in Taransaud and Marques French oak barrels,

2-3 minute sear on each side at 500-550. Perfect 👌

Prime cut makes a difference. Not a chew fest like supermarket meat.

I have never heard of Taransaud or Marques French barrels but if I go after a master of wine probably should know all the barrels 🤔 any which way sounds like it was a good wine 🍷

Donkey & Goat

The Gadabout California White Blend 2018

Sage, leaves of grass, fresh river water. Lovely, piney bouquet.

Mmmmmm love this. Love the bubbles and zippy quality. Light grapefruit. Some of that herbaceousness, but well balanced with cloves and just a breezy wind, really.

Like a Jack Johnson song on a lazy beach day.

Johnson Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012

Plenty to like here. Definitely feel like I’m learning about a new terroir with this and I’m very open to it. Has a deep toasted wood and earth underneath the fresh pinot fruit that seems of place. Very pleasurable. A step up in pleasure from 2011 which I found to be a little thin perhaps a colder vintage. Love this — 5 months ago

Turnbull Wine Cellars

Johnson Turnbull Vineyard Selection 82 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1986

Predecessor to today's Turnbull Winery..think around $30 bucks back in its time.

Double decant (decent chunky sediment) and pour. A sterling tawny ruby red color with good bricking. On the nose: A surprisingly expressive nose!......sweet aged cab perfume, cherries, Eucalyptus, cedar, green veggies, smoked meats. Taste: elegant, smooth, nice mouthfeel, medium body wine with dried black fruit, dried herbs, pepper, and a currant & leather medium finish with just a little tannic kick after all these years. A gift from a friend, and a TREAT to drink this Saturday night!!!!!
