Opened the 2008 over a hour ago. Fruit has come up and expanded. I could not believe that it was 11 years old. A beautiful wine in every respect. Enjoy — 4 months ago

9.2

Tasted side by side with the 15 Becklyn NV and the 15 Quivet NV.

Super dark purplish red. Tight I start in the nose but then opened up with cassis, blackberries and sweet spices. Medium plus (7.5/10) and rounded full body. Dark fruits on the palate with sweet spices, brown sugar, blueberries, aniseed and crushed gravel. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2027. (92+)

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

I decided to take the plunge and open this 2017. I’m glad I did!

It reminds me of the 2015 Scarlett upon release, but even better.

This is plush and powerful but not overpowering. The tannins are soft and inviting. Yes the nose is slightly closed, but everything else makes up for it and then some!

This might be the best young Quivet I’ve had.

Scarlett Cabernet Sauvignon

Not surprisingly, @Mike Smith goes three for three in the last five days. His Myriad and Quivet 2015s are both extraordinary, thus my high expectations for 2015 Scarlett. Give her two hours to fully unwind. After that, she blasts the palate with an orange peel tinged dark chocolate, and an edge of eucalyptus mint. Decadent concentration, loaded with extracted cassis and plum, and a sensational meaty savoriness. — 2 years ago

In my mind, in the price range, this wine is tough to beat.

McGah Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Decided to do a little comparison before @Shay A 's dinner and wine, and wish I could have stayed!! Tasting alongside a 2017 Rutherford SB from Modus Operandi. By comparison, this one was sourced from the Southeastern border of Rutherford whereas the Modus was on the northwestern region of Rutherford. This one definitely had more rounded edges, less tropical notes, more peach which increased as the wine sat and warmed up to room temperature. I would say that the nose of the Modus was a little more distinct than the nose of the Quivet. But, I think that more of the volcanic type soil characteristic of the Silverado Trail definitely showed here in the finish, even in an SB. Hey grade head-to-head comparison, with a very slight nod to the Modus. I think this is a slightly different food wine than the Modus which is probably a little more capable of standing on its own. — 9 months ago
