The Arsenal Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

So amazingly good! The texture is absolutely luxurious! So complete across the entire palate with loads of lovely fruit accented by chocolatey goodness on the finish. Without a doubt, one of the best wines I’ve had this year! — 5 days ago

Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Admirably well-balanced for a wine of this size while also staying true to the structured 2016-vintage.
Kudos to a gifted winemaker (
@Aaron Pott) and a spectacular Napa wine that should bring big smiles to the fortunate few faces over the next 30+ years.

Madrigal Vineyards

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Intense dark fruits & spices intermingled with perfumed essence of prune, fig, molasses, menthol, clove, licorice, and sweet cherry pipe tobacco. Reminds me of a more feminine aged Caymus SS 👌🏻 Delicious but lacks the staying power. Structure feels a bit loose, almost as if it’s disintegrating and unraveling at a quicker-than-normal rate. — 23 days ago

Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Everything a cult Cabernet should be. Very high quality yet integrated new oak, ultra-ripe and silky tannin, mouth-coating and voluptuous fruit, layered, and very lengthy. Seamless from attack to finish. The richness evident on front, mid, and back palate. showing some muscles under its fine velvet profile, very gorgeous. Aromatically not the most compelling with its high alcohol and elevated VA, all palate here though. However beneath the noise is some beautiful oak, exotic spices, and floral notes, still very complex just lacking a touch of detail. ‘Murica — 14 days ago

One of two ‘99 vintage Napa cabs I’ve had recently (the other being Seavey) and this was a step or two behind. The fruit is all stewed and muddled...mainly dusty blackberries and old puréed red fruit. There is a distinct cocoa dusted dates note in the middle of this wine and even some old graham cracker. The fruit is even slightly tart on the palate (underripe plum, older currant), though very herbal at the finish. This was slow oxed for quite a few hours by the time I got to it, so it may have faded a bit by then. Regardless, drink up. — 19 days ago

@Shay A The 99 PR Stag’s Leap was my first love of red. Back then, I drank a ton of CA Chardonnay.
