Decent legs, 6/10. Smells like honeysuckle and citrus. A good example of a California Chardonnay. A small bite, and finish isn't very long lasting. Well balanced and lightly buttery. Good! — 9 days ago
A very nice blend of Malbec, Petit Verdot, Cabernet and Merlot. Licorice fragrance and classic Cab overtones. May 2019 — 14 days ago

Delightful and not too oaky. Nice malolactic fermentation, butter, traveled well from Napa and could have hung around for another couple of years. — 22 days ago

Monthly WTF group. Theme this month was merlot. All wines tasted blind.
I called this Napa merlot between 2013-2015. Similar to some of the other merlots of the night, I got a dustiness to the fruit. Nicely balanced with good acidity and tannin. Definitely more red and black fruit dominant with bay leaf and a streak of licorice down the middle. I could see this going up in score a little bit over the next couple of years.
