Really superb Napa Cab. Purchased from Odette Tasting room. Classic Napa Vallet. Oak, vanilla, cocoa on the nose. Followed by dusty earth and sage. Lots of dark fruit, honeyed fig, chocolate , hazelnut Nutella. This is a well structured wine at 15.6% — 5 days ago
In a sweet spot. Toasted buckwheat and shaved coconut, dried pineapple, citrus, apricot tagine, brown butter, caramel, sage, white pepper and white tea. Zingy and so long. Salty, with a subtle sweetness and great texture. Resonant minerals round out the finish. Superb. — 18 days ago
Black and red cherry fruit aromas, dried cran and raisin, display a light tangerine, sage, aloe and pepper dust. Sweet tobacco, and spot on measures of cedar and smoke. Dried cherry, pointedly tart raspberry, black cherry, cocoa, coffee, and tarragon round out the palate. Juicy in places; lean on the pyrotechnics. Balanced in a word.

Giving this a try with 7 years on it. Aging well, oak is finally a little more muted giving way to cedar, sage, mocha, vanilla, and butterscotch. Beautiful expression of Livermore fruit. Balanced acidity. 14.1% — 12 days ago
What a nose. Singing. Citrus, sage, herbs, flowers, black currents. Just so aromatic. Dizzying. Wild mint and just awesome minerality. Palate is fresh, vibrant, energetic and playful. Complex, round and super mineral and floral. Terrific concentration and purity. This is so poised. — 7 days ago
Nice mineral Chardonnay, green plants and sage, refreshing and full taste. Obviously will buy another bottle on the next occasion. — 16 days ago
85% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Bright and shiny ruby red with a nose of cherries, sage, herbs and red tea.
Medium bodied with berries/cherries, leather, violets and a touch of earthiness.
The acidity is crisp and cleansing with soft tannins that are nicely balanced.
This wine is a great Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday drinker and don’t break the bank. — 18 days ago
