Sam was right. I like this one. With a good chill. Crisp. Lemony. Minerally. — 19 days ago

UV Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

Definitely glad I got in early for Sam and Nancy’s latest project. This stands up to Aubert/Morlet and has become a top-3 CA chard for me. Very pale yellow in the glass. Toast, saline, and light lemon zest on the nose. A little bite on the front end, but super clean and full of tropical fruit and bright acidity with a long finish. All indications are that 2017 is even better, and I’m very much looking forward to receiving that shipment. — 5 months ago

I’ve wondered about this and their Pinot. Thanks for the detailed review. Sounds good.

Baru...what fond memories. Can’t wait until he opens back up.


Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

First time with this wine. Purchased a while back because...well Sam Kaplan (winemaker) highly suggested it. Wow! We gave it a good 1.5 hours in the decanter and it was worth the wait! Dark, deep purple in color and in taste. You can tell it has the Oakville area pedigree. Rich mouth feel, dark ripe fruit and a little dry cocoa on the end. Will be with owners Ron and Karen Davidowski on the Rhône next week, and want to shake their hands! Well done! — 5 months ago

Grande Cuvée Brut Champagne Blend

@Mike R Never comes empty-handed. This is one of six different bottles he brought with him for the night. What away to start an evening. Can’t thank you enough driving down to Greensboro, NC. for the night. Enjoyed this beauty- at Sam Snead’s cabin where he & his Beautiful bride stayed at. — 5 months ago
