Jayson Napa County Red Blend 2016

I’d forgotten just how solid this stuff is. So good. Lots happening here and while this 2016 is drinking really well as is I sense that in some time all the pieces will round together into a more harmonious experience that will be a knockout. — a month ago

Ridge Vineyards

York Creek Napa County Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1977

Paul Draper’s notes indicate this was the first vintage of York Creek can to be generally available. I don’t know what that means about the age of the vines but the notes (written in 1979) also say “with two to three years of bottle age this wine should begin to open up, but it will need more time to soften fully.” Well here we are 42 years on: still savory, still has a tannic backbone with good acidity, still has a good cork. Definitely a food wine, but very fine as such. Not a fruit bomb in the last twenty years can compare! 13.1% abv. — 19 days ago
