Some sediment but really holding well 10 years later — 5 days ago
probably my favorite of these K&L buys so far, the biggest as well. Spring mountain so it probably has a long life ahead of it, 10 more years🤷🏼♂️
All these older vintages of York Creek continue to amaze me at the price point. For months I ignored these figuring they sounded to good to be true. Big mistake — a day ago
12’ Adamvs Howell MT Estate Cabernet. 3 barrels made of this flagship wine.
Another Melka wine. 100% Cab & new oak. Seen this movie before from Melka.
This wine has broad shoulders a black and blue fruit. Needs a decanting of at least an hour or more for it to really show off. — 7 days ago
Monthly WTF group recap. Theme this month was “bring something special”. Normally we taste all of the wines blind, but we decided to do a relaxed night with amazing wines at a great restaurant. Spectacular evening!
One of my favorite producers, and likely just entering its prime window (where I imagine it will hold for a decade or so). The profile here is dense yet soft and round. Gorgeous aromatics of baked fig and ripe blackberry with pencil shavings and cassis. Black cherry jam, graham cracker, violets and dusty traits on the palate. Such a delicious wine right now.

Deep ruby purple in the glass. Abundant nose of cassis, rhubarb, and light graphite. Fruit forward, full-bodied palate echoes the nose with medium acidity and medium plus, dusty tannins. Long, dark red finish wraps it all up. An excellent match for my cowboy rubbed porterhouse, and the perfect subject to test out my new Repour stoppers. ITD great now. I’ll be back over the course of the week to see how it fares. IF I don’t finish it all tonight! 😉 — 4 days ago
Clear ruby with wide edges and purple tints. All the creme de cassis and dark chocolate you want on the nose with some five spice. Unlike the rest of the Juslyn offerings, this is for right now. At first, it’s quite restrained and aloof but time in the decanter works wonders. Even in its youth, this is still approachable after some air. It’s pretty clear that there’s a few more years left before it all comes together but that beautiful mountain fruit is already shining. Boysenberry, white pepper, Junior Mints, and a bit of strawberry on the back end of the palate. Really nice structure here makes me wonder what this is going to be like in a few more years but right now it’s more than good enough. — 13 days ago
