Big, bold, and rich. Generous sweet cherries, balanced with nice acidity, and fine tannins that stood up to and paired perfectly with the spicy BBQ at Cote. — 22 days ago
Another delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from a Single Vineyard in Napa Valley.
Full bodied and bold with medium acidity.
Showing black fruits with tobacco, chocolates, coffee, vanilla, cedar, licorice, spices and peppercorn.
Dry and very fruity on the palate with a long finish and round tannins.
Showing great complexity and mouthfeel. Rich, yet elegant and fruit forward.
Good right out of the bottle and probably better with airtime, but I didn't have that luxury, as the bottle finished right away.
Thank you Barry for sharing this with me.
I had this vintage 5 years ago (from a 750ml), and loved it too. This Magnum will continue to age nicely in the next 10 to 15 years.
Good by itself, and does not need any food, but will pair very nicely with a big piece of steak.
A blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1%Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot. Grapes are grown at 1,200 feet of elevation, and were aged in oak barrels for 26 months. A small production of only 250 cases.
14.7% alcohol by volume.
$800 (Magnum). — 15 days ago
Rich, bold and flavorful — a month ago
One of my favorites. Light body. Earthy Nice acidity — 9 days ago
Bold notes of blue flowers, violet, blackberries, plums, piñon, velvet and tobacco. Beautifully tannic, with a spine of lingering spice, rich and acid driven, with notes of dried wood, blood orange, blueberry cobbler, and a surprisingly dry finish with notes of clove and wet earth. Perfect pairing for light to medium spice Mexican food and probably my favorite Syrah. A personal game changer. — 4 days ago
