Premiere Napa Valley

MICHAEL COOPER DipWSET
9.3

Fortunate enough to taste this lovely wine 11 years after its vintage and it was singing. #napa #pnv Only 5 cases produced. “This wine showcases our 200 acres of estate vineyards by using a blend of the five classic Bordeaux grapes from five landmark Napa Valley appellations. Deeply fruited and elegantly structured, this wine combines nuance and power for a classic bottling. Our Premiere Napa Valley bottling showcases rich texture and deep complexity. Aromas of ripe blackberry, Bing cherry, clove and star anise leap from the glass and balance a dense palate of black plum, cassis and toasty cocoa with a smooth finish framed by dusty tannins.

Plus One Kiona Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

This is a sneaky little wine. Mint and leather on the nose, but not in high degree. Dried cherries on the front, but not enough of those flavors to make it fruit forward. A light to medium tannic structure that is neither puckery nor velvety. Ending with lingering soft high notes. At first I wasn’t really paying attention to its unpretentiousness, but then I realized that every landmark in my mouth was pleased and smiling. It’s like one of those subtle Grand Cru Bordeauxs that, once every decade or so, give us something brilliant and memorable. Well, after that spiel, I should probably give it a 10.0, but I’ve never tasted a 10.0 — so I’m giving it a 9.8. I can’t think that I’ve given anything more than 9.6. So take it from me that this is a pretty fooking great wine! — 2 years ago

Citrusy, petrol, just delightful. — 2 months ago

Landmark Vineyards

Rayhill Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014

Bruised black cherry, Luxardo and red licorice on the nose, and the profile broadens on the palate both in higher toned tangy fruit and deeper, smokey earthiness. Sanguine, tinged with umami. Rich and chewy but still rocking a line of sinewy tannin. — 9 months ago

Château Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 1980

The 1980 Chateau Pichon-Lalande is a landmark wine from this challenging vintage in Bordeaux. On the nose this shows gorgeous savory aromas with wild mushroom, exotic spices and red bell pepper with salted Marcona almond. The palate shows light dark fruits with largely tertiary flavors rounding things out. While this is gorgeous now, the wine will bring drinking enjoyment for at least another five years.
