Dislike based on price point I would say. Is it a bad wine, no.

Trader Joe's

Reserve Lot# 195 Red Hills Lake County Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Raising a glass to the original Trader Joe, who passed recently. (Hope we aren’t about to meet you on the other side, brother; #Corona.) Sampled this in-store and it’s a TJs wine find, for sure. The logo on the label would make anyone a bit sheepish to open this outside of one’s home (it’s the ideal wine for social distancing, in that respect). But if you frequent the wine racks at Trader Joe’s, like I do, you know that there’s nothing to be embarrassed about. Rich, bright but mellow tannins. Plum. Dry. As good as anything coming out of Napa on a more respectable label at 30-40 bones. — 14 days ago

Le Sucrier Velours Napa County Sonoma County Red Blend

Had my chef buddies over for a reboot of my Decanting Sessions. I figured this would be a nice treat since it's so unusual. Besides, it's been about 18 months since my last bottle so I wanted to check in with its development. Decanted several hours ahead of time. Deep, impenetrable purplish-red color. An impressive bouquet; a combination of blue and dark fruits with bacon, lavender, smoke and spices. On the palate, an abundance of blue fruits, cassis, meat and baking spices. This is a glossy, compelling and unusual (but delicious) non-vintage wine. Full bodied. Tannin seems to be integrating nicely. Good acidity. The finish is long; tongue smacking! The ABV is remarkably well hidden. Many years of life ahead of these. I really like this wine for what it is and wouldn't mind seeing him make it again if the circumstances permit him to do so. — a day ago

Chappellet

Mountain Cuvée Proprietor's Blend 2017

I’ve run out of the wine that I brought with me so I headed to Total Wine (an essential business during the city shutdown) to replenish the stash. This was one of the buys. I visited Chappelet during Premier Napa Valley for the Pritchard Hill tasting. Really liked the high end lineup so I thought I would give this a try. Had with Fresco Cafe Italiano take away. — 2 hours ago
