2013 Pahlmeyer Napa Red blend.
Inky red/ deep purple hue. I love how this wine feels in my mouth. Loads of dark red fruit, currants, chocolates, cinnamon spice. star anise with a long lasting finish. Get this in your cellar now. 👍🏼

Cerro Sur Napa Valley Red Blend 2013

I loved this- one of the best 2013 I’ve had and still feels like it’s got years to improve. Deep colors and flavors. Mocha, dark fruits, tar. Gorgeous acidity. — 9 days ago

Blend 24 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2014

More of a drink now kind of wine for me. Not super aromatic but nice sweet rich fruit, black cherry, espresso, touch of earth (as in tiny since it's so fruit extracted) from the sangio. Nice tannins. The merlot in the blend works but I might miss the petite sirah? 92-93

Murrieta's well merlot much better on day 2. It needs some time for the fruit to come out

Wow! High octane, but at the same time, balanced. Red, blue and black fruit on the nose. Violet too. Nutmeg and some cocoa dusted bay leaf. Palate is young. Licorice and cassis. Blueberry driven finish that is both powerful and refined at the same time. Plenty of time ahead for this. — 8 days ago

Just starting to shed it’s baby fat, this ruby red cab starts with a rich nose of berry and incense and a dark blackberry and plum palate that ends with a dollop of vanilla cream. Very nice and still shy of its peak — 14 days ago

Colgin

IX Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2013

This was the Mystery Wine which I ended up picking - more an educated guess than anything. It boiled down to the fact I didn’t think it was from Bordeaux and the host is the Australian agent for Colgin which many Aussies would not have heard of and he saw the opportunity to show it to the 20 guests. The Wine had more rhubarb and raspberry notes. Richer than the Pomerol Wines - more new world. Very good but not cheap at over $1300 AUD. Others preferred at that price. I have had the Colgin “Herb Lamb “ which was equally impressive and expensive. In November 2017 Ann Colgin and her husband sold 60% of the winery to French Luxury conglomerate LVMH. — 11 days ago

Did not know they sold. Will be interesting to see what changes occur.

@Norman Gennaro who knows. I would say if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.

The Bard Red Wine 2015

I know wine preferences are subjective, but I found this to be super disappointing. Perhaps my expectations were too high, perhaps it was an off bottle, maybe I opened it too soon, or perhaps Saturn wasn’t aligned with Venus - who knows - but I’ve had prior vintages that blew me away but not this one (which everyone seems to love?). Don’t get me wrong, it’s good, just not sing it from the mountain top good to me. — 14 days ago

@Carl Fischer : Bummer. I’ve got a couple but haven’t had any yet. Need more time or maybe just how this vintage is?

@Shay A - The experts of the Herd tell me most likely too soon.
