Palermo Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Had this about year or so ago, saw a bottle on wine list. A blend of Cab Sauv, Merlot & Cab Franc, aged for 10 months in French oak, 35% new. Deep Ruby with ripe fruit aromas and round oak notes. On the palate flavors of blackberry & cherry with vanilla and cacao, starting to develop some leathery tones. Nice ripe soft tannins, that open easily. Long finish ending with fruit, mineral and vanilla character. Very nice should continue to drink well for next decade. — 21 hours ago

Machete Napa Valley Red Blend 2017

Wow, a Fav! Had the new ‘17 vin. Blend of Petite Sirah, Syrah & Grenache & aged for 10 months on French oak (40% new). Deep Ruby with aromas of black fruits & sweet spice. On the palate, ripe blueberries, plum & sweet cherry with oak & vanilla spice, Lingering finish, good length, tannins are soft with slight grip. Good structure, ending with fruit character and mineral tones, drinks well, needs decanting. Produced with 12 different labels. Nice! — 6 days ago

Machete Red wine 2016

blackberry and boysenberry compote, a reduction of dark plum and ripe figs, and pure Amarena cherry. Flashes of vanilla and traces of minerality evolve into chalky tannins and a smooth lingering finish. — 6 days ago

Mannequin California White Blend 2013

OMG... this is a balls-to-the-wall kind of a wine...
Very opulent, lots of alcohol, thick and creamy, confident and convincing clods of coconut oil, vanilla bean, grilled pine apple, peach yoghurt, honey glazed pastry and those heartwarming scents of Bourbon.
Yes, this is as obtrusive and cheeky as it sounds. And yet... somehow... it works. RP scores 96/100.... don’t see that. But, when served slightly chilled, I like it a lot!
The label says California chardonnay and that’s partially true. 70% Chardonnay indeed. The remainder of the blend (Viognier, Roussanne, Marsanne, Grenache Blanc and even Muscat) gives this wine its unmistakably Rhône-esque personality.
