Oakville Chardonnay 2014

Wow what a great wine!
This has depth, power, yummie oak and vanilla AND remains fresh! This can easily stand up against great Burgundies.
Thanks
@David L for recommending the domain. Keen on learning more about napa wines and curious how their CS will taste.

Purchased grapes not a estate grown. Still very nicely made. Happy you enjoyed that. Should definitely give their CS a try. They also make an “extended barrel age” that’s insanely good, if you get a chance to grab one of those… They’re rare .

Howell Mountain Merlot 2015

Sssshhhh. Don’t tell anyone about this wine. It’s cheaper and better than most Napa Cabs. Shout out to Paul Giamatti for ruining Merlot for the unknowledgeable. So rich and beautiful. Love this producer and this wine. — 3 months ago

Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

09’ O’Shaughnessy Mount Veeder. Bright ruby red in color... No signs of aging.
The palate is showing dark blueberry, blackberry, licorice, graphite, Big oak! & hangs on the back of the palate for a good 60 seconds. Still quite young/powerful, full -bodied. It’s got another 🤷🏻‍♂️ in it. No rush in opening.

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

11’ O’Shaughnessy Cabernet.
Ruby red in color. Palate- Dark raspberry, plum, chocolate mint, tobacco, cocoa powder.
Lush & concentrated, typical big mid-palates ... from Howell MT, even on a more challenging vintage such as this.

On a side-note - What’s been said about 2011‘s, disagree with when they have come from this AVA.

Generally so appealing to the crowds, carries nice weight for a 11. Quite delicious . Pull the cork & enjoy shortly afterwards.

Had this a year+ ago and it was too tight. Opening up to approachability now and just really good. Still only a 2016, so lots of runway!
