Six Eight Nine Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Second bottle on Super Bowl LIV Sunday with Wagyu Cross and artisanal bacon burgers. Light ruby color. Red berry and vanilla on the nose (vanilla almost overpowering), little bit of tabaco towards the end. Red fruit and vanilla continue on the fore pallet. New oak is very apparent and then, it is smoothly counterbalanced by well structured tannings and a long finish. Modern take on Cali Cab, pleasantly surprised and glad to indulge. — 17 days ago

Queen D Applegate Valley White Blend 2015

50/25/25 blend of Marsanne, Roussanne and Grenache Blanc. Pale white, excellent clarity. Sulfite in nose initially. White flower, lemon and maybe a hint of strawberry flavor with a lactic finish, some skin astringency, some minerality. Good acid but not overpoweringly so. Slight spritz in aftertaste. Cherry and nectarine flavors emerge after an hour, so bumping the score up to a nine point oh if you can give it an hour. — 8 days ago

Nine Suns

Napa Valley Red Blend 2012

Wasn’t expecting to enjoy this so much. Nice depth of fruit and fine grained tannins. Plenty of dark fruit plush. Still had nice acidity/red fruits and balance to be quite enjoyable. Probably my favorite nine suns vintage. — 2 months ago
