Nickel & Nickel

Quarry Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Quarry Vineyard climbs the slopes above the Silverado Trail which produces an intensely flavored Cab of cherry, black tea, and soft tannins. This deep ruby red wine is nearly colored ink. Not to be forgotten! — 3 days ago

Thanks @Ron R ! Reverse sear really turned out perfectly. Also really enjoyed this wine, but this will be better in a few years. Maybe I opened too soon and the others outshined its shine?? Still enjoyed with an *.

Quintessa

Rutherford Red Blend 2015

Deep ruby - almost purple - hue with tearing and staining. Nose has a lot of red and black fruit; cherry pie filling, raspberry jam, creme de cassis, ripe blackberry, nutmeg and light baking spices, white pepper, dusty cedar box, vanilla, pencil shavings, dried violets, earl grey tea, and mushrooms. Strong tannins on the palate, long, elegant finish. Deep complexity, layered character. Full-bodied. I can only imagine this wine ten years on. Classic pairing with filet mignon and white truffle sautéed mushrooms, roasted potatoes and asparagus. Vintage 2015. 14.5% ABV. Happy Anniversary @Deked1 ❤️❤️ — 17 days ago

Caymus Vineyards

40th Anniversary Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

This was a very interesting tasting experience. 3rd btl since release and changing for the better. Highly extracted Purple in color with nose of berries, cherry, herbs, licorice and taste of cherry mocha blackberry and vanilla. Certainly New World but better balanced w time. The wine became more focused and less jammy over the evening and wine left in the glass showed some tannin along with the good fruit. I am wondering if this is going to age like many 82 Bordeaux that originally seemed too fruity and unstructured to last but have truly showed the test of time. The background tannins have me considering this to be the future ? I think it is going to be going strong with good balance well into its second decade of life — 9 days ago

St. Supéry Estate Vineyards

Napa Valley Merlot 2010

This is a wine that aged phenomenally. One of the top merlots I’ve had anywhere. But the age is so key to mellowing this out. Super drinkable wine. But 10+ years in the bottle is necessary to put it into great. — 11 days ago
