@Jay Kline For sure. We've had some '78 Petite Sirah direct from the winery cellar, amazing stuff. I would have liked to open a CASK 23, but they're all responsibly in off-site storage. SLV seemed like the appropriate pull since it was a Spurrier tasting wine back in the day.
@Norman Gennaro Thanks πŸ™

Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot, deep Ruby with aromas of rich berry fruit, floral and slight spice. On the palate flavors of blackberry and blueberry with floral spice, warm integrated vanilla oak and earthy cinnamon. Fine soft tannins, long finish ending with fruit, spice, vanilla oak and soft earthy notes, nice now, will still develop. A nice fillet mignon with Cabernet gravy will go well. β€” a month ago

My son says it’s a 98-99pt. I’m saying 97 since I wanted a bit more of a finish punch. With just a bit of air this opened up wonderfully. Really great wine, plush on the mouth, rich and strong cab flavors. β€” 25 days ago

The Investor Napa Valley Red Blend 2020

Strong and rich on the nose. Needed some time to open up and let the alcohol dance itself out to expose the ripe flavors of Bacchus. Ends spicy and dry apropos for a rigatoni alla puttanesca. Not worth the price tag. β€” 13 hours ago

Stags Leap District Cabernet Sauvignon 1990

The wine is starting to tire. Incredible nose, cherries, blueberries, spice, leather and tobacco. On the palate it is probably past its prime. Super soft tannins, slight red fruits and a bit of oak. Very fun and interesting wine. Super enjoyable. β€” a month ago
