A standout to me based on the youthfulness of this bottle shared by @Mike R, thank you. Underbrush and mint on the nose. While still maintaining a bright red color that is still intact. Gave me devious reminders of a Penfolds Grange. Mint, iron and blast of minerals prevailed on the palate. Supremely balanced as some of the pre 97’s in the flight gained tannins. — a month ago
Big day of wine! Grand Reserve tasting at Total followed by steak night.
Third wine from Total wine tasting. Needs a little more time in the bottle, but beautiful representation of Brunello. Underripe bing cherries and white rose petals. — a month ago
Sourced from the esteemed ‘Olsen Vineyard’ in the Yakima Valley, this wine is a compelling blend of 47% Cinsault with 27% Grenache and 26% Syrah. Pretty red rose and watermelon with orange blossom and shades of white pepper aromatics all build in the glass. The palate unveils a silky texture and a rich, gratifying mouthfeel. Once in the mouth, bright guava, strawberry and lighter earthy and wet stone undertones round out this downright delicious Rose. While beautiful in its youth, this impressive effort will cellar well over the next five plus years. Drink 2019-2024- 92 — a month ago

This Single Vineyard, Napa Valley, Sauvignon Blanc is crisp and refreshing with nice balance. Showing mild complexity with a nice mouthfeel.
A good wine to have by itself or with food. Good for the pool too.
Needs 20 minutes to open up properly and better when properly chilled.
I had it by the pool with light appetizers.
