Napa Valley Pinot Noir 1985

A slightly browned end to the first whiff. Wood and tobacco and intensity. Not like many Pinot but rich and tasty. Good. — 11 days ago

Sonoma Summit Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Estate grown Sonoma (Mayacamas Mountain) Cabernet Sauvignon. The word that comes to mind is elegant. Plums, currents and blackberry fruit dominate with hints of forest floor and wet stones. Silky finish! — 19 days ago

Mt. Veeder Merlot 2015

Was completely blown away by this wine, high toned red fruit, medium plus acidity and medium plus tannins. This wine is great now but can’t wait till I open a bottle in 5-10 years. — 2 months ago

Mt. Veeder Chardonnay 2017

Another Wednesday Wine Committee in the books. Great hosting by @Bill Makens . 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds, 1 dessert wine all served blind.

Potential for this to increase in score over the next 5-7yrs. Very similar to the Saint Aubin burgundy before it, but slightly more reductive. Grilled poached pear, wet rock, lemon honey and honeysuckle dominate, with ripping acidity powering this wine to the finish. Hold and enjoy in a few years.

@Shay A : can’t wait to try these with 5-7 years on them. Agree with the potential...

Was able to try a bottle from 1978 a few weeks ago! A bit oxidized, but really brought out toasted notes.

Mayacamas Range Zinfandel 2013

From 375. Gorgeous nose has lifted spicy blackberry, a note of warm, moist gravel, and wood smoke. Still youthfully structured, but displaying great balance and very pure fruit and a nice, restrained minerally note. The finish is all brambly Zin. — 2 months ago

Napa Valley Chardonnay 2016

Green gold and lemon sour....not much nose but then the tart mid-palate and sharp acid finish roll in and bring the wine some serious gravitas. I love the “old world” aspect of this green apple/not-quite ripe pear tinged wine.No noticeable oak and a long, grippy finish. — 2 months ago
