Finally getting around to posting wines from my annual Napa trip from two weeks ago. Always goes by quick! Lots of fun new stops this year.

Really enjoyed my visiting with Will at Mending Wall where he poured Rivers-Marie as well as his personal label William & Mary.

A side by side with this and the proprietary red. Very red fruit dominant accompanied by underripe black fruits...black cherries, dark cocoa and floral aromatics like potpourri. Very smooth and tightly coiled on the palate. No hard edges. This can be enjoyed with a lengthy decant, but the best is yet to come.

Nose is a bit tinny. But also floral and cherry. Palate is a bit austere and high toned with ok acids. Maybe a bit high. This is average. — 18 days ago

@David T We managed to hold our final pours for 2+ hours, it was absolutely stunning to close our night out, one of our favorite GC's in Chablis.

I bet. I love their work & this vineyard. Since you are early on this (but, imagine you have other bottles for later) a good decant spoke volumes.

My favorite of the tasting. Co-fermented cab franc and merlot. I’m partial to cab franc, so no surprise this was up my alley. Gorgeous display of violets, herbs de Provence, red and black currant and sandalwood. Great weight on the palate channeling herbal/savory notes next to underripe rhubarb and blackberries. Delicious.

Tasting notes look great and only verify that I won’t be popping open any this anytime soon. Sounds like the merlot is still in the drivers seat!

Deep ruby color. Aromas of evergreens- moss and blackberries. Earthy flavors, dirt and cigar box finish. Bill Harrison makes amazing vino. Had it with some homemade Swedish meatballs and mashed potatoes. — 3 days ago

Les Preuses Chablis Grand Cru Chardonnay 2004

A very good Chablis!!! Medium gold with aromas of apple, mineral, spice, floral , and yeast. Flavors of apple and oak with a nice finish. Very good and well balanced. Not a cheap bottle, but definitely worth it. — 16 days ago
