A few fun bottles from last Friday.

I can’t imagine enjoying one of these on the young side or shortly after release. Whole cluster punch to the face! But with 10yrs on it, the whole cluster usage has given this great lift and spice on the palate. Deep ruby with a touch of purple at the core. Aromatically it is very expressive revealing peppercorn, violets, stem, and underripe black cherries. The palate is very energetic and powerful yet carries the weight effortlessly. A very concentrated, yet complex, wine that is still improving. Thanks

Hell yes. Possibly the best American pinot produced.

Mt. Veeder Cabernet Franc 2014

Had to open a magnum of this because I'm running low. I have to say that after a couple years of being pleased with my purchases, I can no longer stand behind Wine Bid. I have been on the receiving end of now about 6 bottles of baked wine. Supposedly from active storage. Lots of money down the drain, and the jury is still out on how WineBid will handle their business. This, meanwhile, is an awesome bottle of wine to share with a lover.

Got to pop some special bottles when my good friend Shawn came in to town!

Finally getting to try this wine! A wonderful winemaker (Julien Fayard) meets killer fruit (Mt Veeder). A perfect marriage for these two as I think JFayard has an incredible skill set at working with quality Cabernet fruit. Inky purple in the glass with sexy aromas of fresh squeezed blue and black fruits, boysenberry jam, baking spices, dark chocolate shavings, and sweet smoke. Rich and decadent on the palate with a very “cool” type profile, like an Andes mint. There is an American oak type note like coconut, but this seems too rich and full of baking spices (French oak) to have American oak used. Velvet and plush with fine grained tannins. A touch of red fruit added to the palate compared to the dark profile aromatics. Little bit of licorice here too, so maybe a touch of malbec is added. Such a lengthy finish! This is a stunning bottle of cab. Thank you so much for bringing it

Scaggs Vineyard Mourvedre 2016

This is so sexy. A dark staining purple with wide edges. Showing a gorgeous nose of black cherries, moist earth, cassis, and fresh herbs. I could seriously just take this in all day, what a fabulous nose. What is this? I’m not used to a Napa Valley Mourvèdre quite like this. This baby is lean and mean. Sexy and sleek, this clocks in at 13.9 when I was expecting upwards of 15. But that’s not really what Newfound does. And of course, it’s that Mount Veeder fruit, as well. As youthful as this is it still shows nice refinement and complexity. The herbal elements add to the depth of this baby. Still so young but already so beautiful, this is such a fun wine. On the palate, wild strawberries and plums mix with smoke and more herbs. Minimal oak and a touch of spice on the medium to long finish. Outstanding. — 4 days ago
