2012 - drink if you got them - not improving from a year ago - big and bold but missing one gear from being a sports car I want it to be - still smiling at the lake with @R Bowers on his anniversary and not social distancing very well — a month ago

W. S. Keyes Vineyard Merlot 2015

This has to be the best Napa Merlot that I have ever tasted, 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. Amazing black and red fruits, great acidity, tension and tannins can’t wait to try there bottles over the years. — 5 months ago

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Delectable Wine

Lokoya's Cabernet Sauvignon (Howell Mountain) draws on both fruit from the Jackson family's Keyes and La Jota vineyards, which is unusual, as the wine is usually made only from Keyes. Plush, deep and inky, the 2015 races across the palate with layers of inky blue/purplish fruit, spice, new leather, licorice and lavender. Deep, powerful and super-concentrated, the 2015 has a lot to offer. Here, too, winemaker Chris Carpenter has tamed the mountain tannins considerably.

Howell Mountain Merlot 2016

Happy Easter! 90% merlot, 5.5% petite Verdot, 4.5% Tannat. A rich, brawny, very big and bold classic Merlot. This wine bursts with flavors of chocolate, espresso, blackberry, black cherry, and raspberry along with hints of vanilla, black plums, truffles, and a floral note. It has dense volcanic mineralogy, beautifully integrated tannins, concentrated black fruits and a long layered finish. — 2 months ago

Day 6 of social distancing. Paired it with the movie The Good Liar. Ron wanted something from South America and not Pinot. Tried to convince him we were drinking a Malbec. Obviously not a Good Liar! — 3 months ago
