Plenty of ripe, dark fruit, chocolate, soft tannins, decent acidity and good depth. Still going strong on day 2/3. — a month ago
Nice, lighter Cab. — 5 months ago
This Merlot/PV combo is SINGING. Round throughout, medium++ bodied wine. Still has a lot of sweet black cherry cola and blackberry notes throughout. But also has a floral nature on the nose and entry while also seeming to have a little bit of a darker side that permeates towards the finish with an herbal character. A surprising amount of pepper on the finish with tannins that have definitely softened over the years. I think this wine is really ready to drink right now as a pop and pour. I did not decant this one, and I don't think I missed anything by not doing so. One more bottle left. I'm sure it will be opened sooner than later given how this one presented! Will try to look for more as well as I feel this one could go another 7 to 10 years without a doubt! — 8 months ago
Very Chablis in effect...only 20% saw time in neutral oak. Lemon pith and rind oil￼ sing lead with fresh minerality woven into the vibrant acidic structure. Pleasant, sophisticated mouthfeel from the lees...very functional with baked/broiled delicate white fish. Ripe fruit from a great harvest certainly make this paradigm possible ;) — 3 months ago
Buttery Chardonnay, greatly enjoyable. Shipped from the vineyard in its inventory sale at closing of Lutum for good. This bottle is a paradigm of California Chardonnay. — a year ago
Great way to celebrate the 4th of July. What are you guys drinking today?
2010 Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon
Oakville, Napa Valley, North Coast, California, USA
Received a three hour decant and tasted blind. Deep and dark purplish ruby red. Layered nose with anise, cassis, cherries and rich undertone of black fruits as well. Heavy tannins (8/10) and full bodied. A light touch of heat on the palate but not overwhelming. Rich and lush palate with dark spices, blackberries, blue fruits, cinnamon and some dark cocoa. Long and lingering finish. A real treat to finally try a bottle! Drink till 2030.

“This isn’t merely a good Albarino it’s a paradigm shifting wine the truly brings out the best of its grape and place. Put it next to the great mineral whites of Chablis or the Loire and it doesn’t miss a beat.”￼ - SommSelect — 5 months ago
