The way to a woman’s heart is with a husband who becomes her bitch. I slaved over this Sunday dinner. I feel so used! Sniff.
Beef tenderloin with Rudius cab. 2014 was a strong vintage in Cali. Prior notes apply.

A little honey, a little pear, a little oaky. I’m a simple bitch who enjoys an easy drinking white wine so this is a slam dunk on a beautiful quarantine afternoon. — 3 months ago

Tried this again and it did not go down as well this time. Might be the sugar.

Jones Family Vineyard

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2002

2002 is such a beautiful vintage IMHO. In many ways, I think even better than 07. We’ll see in five years from now as I lack a time machine.

I’ve said this a couple of times over my nearly 4,200 Delectable notes. There is no amount of decanting a young wine that can reproduce the beauty, elegance, florals, integration, balance and finish as long bottle age. If you are buying expensive Cabernets and drinking them young, you are simply short changing yourself out of your deep investment.

This largely under known Napa producer is a shining example of that tonight. Proof in the pudding so to speak.

The nose reveals, sweet, ripe, lush, ruby, slightly baked/liqueured fruits of; blackberries, black raspberries, black cherries, black plum, understated blueberries and baked strawberries haunt the backend. Dark Asian & Indian spices, black licorice to anise, sweet tarriness, black tea, dark expresso, crushed dry rocks, limestone minerals, herbal notes, mint, incense, graphite, dark chocolate, caramel & mocha, dry top soil, moist clay, dark rich, turn earth with fresh & withering; dark, red, purple, blue flowers & just a touch of violets.

The body is; round, rich & luxurious. The tannins still have baby teeth and show chewy tarriness. The tension, structure, length and balance have hit their peak. It’s not going to improve, it will simply show you descending changes which, can be quite enjoyable but, not necessarily for the ones that appreciate wines young. Interesting, none the less, for the ones that enjoy all sides/aspects of wine evolution. Sweet, ripe, lush, ruby, slightly baked/liqueured fruits of; blackberries, black raspberries, black cherries, black plum, mulberries, boysenberries, more blue fruits than the nose, cherries and baked strawberries haunt the backend. Dark Asian & Indian spices with just the right amount of heat, black licorice to anise, sweet tarriness, black tea, dark expresso, crushed dry rocks, limestone minerals, herbal notes, mint, graphite, dark chocolate, caramel & mocha, dry top soil, moist clay, dark rich, turn earth, fresh tobacco, suede style leather, saddle-wood with fresh & withering; dark, red, purple, blue flowers & just a touch of violets. The ABV on this wine is really nice given today’s hotter wines. Climate change, it’s a bitch. The round acidy is as good as it gets. The long, excellent, elegant, rich, ripe, ruby, gorgeous, sexy, floral, perfectly balanced finish falls into persistent heaven.

This is a gorgeous example of what Napa Valley is capable of in grand vintages, if you have good storage & can show patience.

@Severn Goodwin Elon is close to a working model. Think of all the $ he is going to make. Buy Tesla stock now before it’s too late.

@David T Really nice notes. Sounds like a wine I would really enjoy. We drink way too many wines too young.

Amazing how the very exspensive wines get the high ratings, scarecrow automatically 10 because of the name as with many others. Tasted blind this would punish many of the big names that 3 times the cost

Keep Wines

Yount Mill Vineyard Pinot Meunier 2019

You know when people wear caption shirts and the word matches their cool factor so much you can’t even be mad about the self-aggrandizing? This bitch is so good I can’t be mad it’s got Keep on the label. And that’s not even what they meant when they chose the name. Psh.

Stanks so good like linen and earth, cedar, ripe berries and lingonberry, Vietnamese cinnamon, and a little greenness. Maybe green garlic or scallion? Those fucking fresh wild onion wildflowers, that’s it.

Tastes like the way I want to feel every day of summer but all year round when I’m listening to chill music in a park and have decent summer abs, but also fun at parties. Like, “ugh she’s so cool but I want to be her friend.” Blueberries, overripe Rainer cherries, tart, smash in your hand and stain ‘em bings, and a berry and stone fruit cobbler.

If you let it rest on your tongue it bites with a little puckerface, but I’m down for the sassy friendship.

This is gonna be a ridiculous bottle in a year.
