Melanson Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

My reward for the 1:49:55 finish in the NYC Half Marathon (and for beating my fundraising goal toward cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital!). My prior score and notes on this remain consistent. I just LOVE this wine. — 2 years ago

@Carl Fischer you're a total stud! Did you think about baseball the whole time or what? 😏

Duckhorn Vineyards

Three Palms Vineyard Merlot 2002

02 vintage with John Upton who sold vineyard to Duckhorn recently. I always felt Three Palms was one of great alluvial fans in terroir as the Napa River tributes into this land. And the traditional vineyard management by John and Sloan was pure old world. No Abreu stuff here. But really the only age-worthy Merlot in CA. This bottle still tight but well made and can last 20 more years. — 3 years ago

Noble Wines Napa Valley

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

This wine was in my latest shipment from 750 and reminds me that all great wines don't need to cost $175+++ a bottle or even $100 a bottle. I was drinking this as I was reviewing my offer from Sloan at $447 a bottle and thinking I would much rather have 9 bottles of this than one bottle of Sloan. Don't get me wrong, I have plenty of trophy wines in my collection but it's getting harder and harder to justify their purchase (just read James Laube's article in current WS as @Ryan M reminded me earlier). This is a great wine with an incredible nose of raspberries, licorice and violets. Easy drinking, the flavors of vanilla and red fruits lead the entry. Great acidity and moderate tannins. This is a really nice wine. — 2 years ago

Please forgive the typos in my prior text. I guess voice recognition goofs when you've had a few glasses of wine? LOL

Jefferson's Bourbon

Jefferson's Reserve Pritchard Hill Cabernet Cask Finished Very Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

I thought this was tremendous. Unlike the Groth cask reserve I get a vibe for the wine barrel treatment here. This is 15 yr old bourbon finished in Chappellet Pritchard Hill cab oak barrels. The bourbon itself has a red hue, possibly owing to the wine barrel. I actually poured my taste in to my wine glass after I finished off some Sloan. To me it's a more successful experiment than the Groth cask. The increased time in French oak has created a smooth, dry whiskey with absolutely zero bite. While I can't specifically pinpoint flavors of wine...or Pritchard Hill...the flavors of cherry and dark chocolate and less obvious sweetness places this smack dab in the middle of my wheelhouse--near my watches, converse and left behind bras. — a year ago

@Michael Meyer The BT stuff is quite nice, one of my fav distillers. @Bill Bender We love the Jefferson bottles, they are always doing interesting stuff, cut our teeth on Ocean, and been in love since.
