The Coco

Mt. Brave

Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

This single block is exceptional. Bountiful nose leads into a tantalizing black Cherry driven palate. Cases and coco, with hints of olive. Completely integrated tannins and soft mouthfeel. Still medium acidity for longer cellaring. — 10 days ago

Fontodi

Chianti Classico Sangiovese 2016

Can’t put this one down.... beautiful nose of dried rose pedal, dusty rainer cherry, coco bean. Earthy. Juicy blackcherry fruit bounds on the palate accented by espresso and cedar box. Cranberry too. Outstanding length with soft, persistent tannins. Great now, only better with cellar age. — 2 months ago

Thank you @Jason and Jennie / amazing wine and Kirk Venge is making delicious wine - RP scored this 97 and I was just not willing to go that far but one of the best Napa cabs in awhile for me - this was consumed during the WNH Sunday virtual zoom tasting and to share virtually with Jason and Jennie was even more amazing - wine had legs forever - deep ruby color - smell of dark red cherries and raspberries and coco - taste and finish incredible - fruit forward delicious smooth - all of the above help create big bold beautiful in a bottle and left me with a huge smile — 4 months ago

Tenuta Sant'Antonio

La Bandina Valpolicella Superiore Corvina Blend 2016

A strong first few sips but gradually with fresh breathes it takes , it’s becomes Velvety & smoother .

A strong gorgeous wine to pair with strong cheese board & cold meat cuts .
I enjoyed it thoroughly with 80./. Dark coco & truffle bites. A Pair made for a delicious decadent Burst of flavours.
it’s a slightly on a dry side of wine but very delicious.

The Crane Assembly

G. B. Crane Vineyard el Coco Red Blend

Very fruit forward, yet not too much. Still some softness and subtlety to it. A great David Phinney wine. 60+% Zinn’s with petite Syrah and merlot. Definitely can feel the pepperiness of the sin, but not too much. A great wine. — a month ago

Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Still tight at this point - could go another 5 years at least - beautiful rose, pie cherry and coco notes on the nose. Lots of tannic grip still. Cherry Cola, baking spices and white pepper on the palette. ❤️ — 4 months ago
