HL Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

1 hour decant (some slightly chunky sediment). A beguiling inky ruby red color with some browning. On the nose: red plum, floral, wet forest floor, some blueberry, and a little creme brulee. Taste: red fruit with a touch of blue fruit mixed in, earthy, cedar, and a red licorice mid palate. A soft approachable wine with fine, sweet tannins coating the mouth ending in a cherry espresso medium finish.

Michael Trujillo winemaker with a lower alcohol restrained cabernet for Napa(note: vineyard used for initial Colgin wine launch). 2016 LAST VINTAGE...vineyard now leased to Thomas Rivers Brown going forward...get ready for a TRB HL vineyard wine....more oak, more ripe.....big scores.

Gary Morisoli Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Kickoff to the extended weekend! This is MUCH more interesting than the non-SVD Trujillo I had several months ago. Yet still young. This has youthful blackberries, cocoa, cinnamon spice on the nose. Full bodied wine. Palate dominated by blackberry in the front. Cocoa powder and some cola notes to the middle. Finishes with a lot of sweet, chalky, toasted tannin. Youthful blackberry and blueberry on the finish. Will definitely improve with time in bottle. A very youthful wine, and overall I probably should have let it sit another five years. Solid 94 now and will definitely improve with age. — a year ago

Damn michal Trujillo you are killing it! Dark dark dark. Lots of liquor on the nose with cassis, blackberry, incense and pencil shavings. A big wine but so soft and so plush it hurts. Not for every day but with a New York steak tonight it’s on fire — 5 months ago

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvigon 2014

Amazing nose of spice and oak. Deep cherry on palette with chalky tannins. Might try with lamb.
Young, would be even better in another year or two. Although after it opened up smoother with notes of blackberry and toasted almond.
