Absolutely lit 🔥. Love this new wine Steve!

Deep purplish ruby red. A bit tight to start on the nose but increases in intensity with air. Dark and spiced nose with dark cocoa, licorice, graphite, toasted oak influence and blackberries. Medium plus tannins (7.5/10) with a full body. Great backbone coated with black and bramble berries, powdered cocoa, pencil shavings and baking spices. Long finish. Drink till 2040. (94+)

Yountville Old Vine Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Yountville Old Vine Cabernet Sauvignon from Grgich Hills Estate. 2014 no less!!!!! Remember the 04’s? The 2014 cabs are like the old Cali 04 cabs used to be. This one is no exception. An excellent year for CA cabernet sauvignon. Three words here: chocolate, spice, and oak! The finish is dry. The emotion is WOW! More please. — a day ago

Laird Family Estate

Flat Rock Ranch Malbec 2014

Not generally a big fan of Malbec, but this one is a keeper. Laird does a nice job delivering on vanilla infused black cherry, fig and dark chocolate. Nicely paired with pulled pork. — 11 days ago

Happy Father’s Day! Wonderful pull by my father in law.

I’m a big fan of this winery as you don’t see them around very much. Such high quality with impeccable wine making. Slow ox for 1-2hrs. 95 merlot/5 CabFranc. Espresso and dark cocoa dusted black cherry, ripe blackberry and currant aromatics...intoxicating. So soft, yet ripe fruit, on the palate. Cherry swisher sweets, baked mixed berry figs, and still tart red and black fruit. Can’t believe how tart and ripe the fruit is even at 13yrs. Outstanding.
