St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

After having the 2017 a couple nights ago, thought it would be fun to compare the 2015 tonight. Overall impressions, the 2015 is: less fruit forward, tighter structure, tannins a bit grippier, more earth, less enticing mouthfeel and finish. Overall, enjoyed the 17 more. But I bet in 5 years the 15 will take the title. — 6 months ago

Heitz Cellar

Lot C-91 Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Another 2nd day wine with 3 hour decant. Doesn’t have that typical fruit forward nose like the Sinegal. Distinctive & on par with old school Heitz. Hopefully new ownership keeps this style.
Store notes,

Lot C-91 is a new wine from Heitz, inspired by a very old one! In the fall of 1969, Joe Heitz played with creating a high-end blend of small lots from some of Heitz's top single-vineyard sites. He dubbed it "Lot C-91." Some 47 years later the current team at Heitz has once again taken select barrels of fruit from legendary sites such at Martha's (Oakville), Trailside (Rutherford) and Linda Falls (Howell Mountain), to create this Napa Valley "Super Cuvée." This wine beautifully showcases the incredible 2016 vintage in Napa, which I think will go down as one of the all-time greats.

I had the 2016 a few weeks ago and absolutely loved it. I was too impatient and only gave it an hour

Aston Estate

Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2012

Ron R

Outstanding example of Cali Pinot. Even more so since this is 2012 vintage. Overripe cherries and coffee notes explode on the nose. The palate displays crunchy black fruits along with syrop de cassis. Superb grainy tannins combine with bright acidity. A reference point in Sonoma/Cali.

@WC Fields, well, I had lined up wines wines that we had quaffed previously, and because of that, the die was cast. Besides, I rarely tasted a wine once and come to such conclusions. I think a good product must also display consistency. 🥳
