Hundred Acre Vineyard

Kayli Morgan Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

#AgedWineTuesday

Dark ruby in color with a brick rim.

Beautiful nose of blueberries, blackberries, black currants, cooked cherries, cedar, vanilla, mint, espresso, earth, spices, black pepper, light vegetables, eucalyptus and pencil lead.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with blueberries, black plums, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, spices, tobacco leaf, chocolates, coffee, green olives, peppercorn, earth, black tea, light vegetables and herbs.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This 13 year old Cabernet Sauvignon is drinking very nicely now, although still young.

Gentle, elegant and tasty. Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel. Nicely balanced with lots of fruits.

Tastes very much like a good quality left bank Bordeaux. Loved the nose here.


Will continue age nicely in the next 15 years. Would be nice to revisit it again in 5 years, as I see it becoming even better.

This Single Vineyard is a delicious wine that needs time to open up properly. I gave it 4 hours in the decanter.

This 19 year old is smooth and generous. Rich and extracted. Sweet and well balanced.

St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

#AgedWineTuesday


This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Spicy and interesting.

Full bodied with medium acidity.

Showing black fruits with cedar, vanilla, leather, spices, earth, dark chocolates, coffee, peppercorn, earth and sweet spices.

Nice length on the finish with fine grained tannins.

This 16 year old tastes very fresh, and smells young too. Showing great complexity with a nice mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle, and better after 2 hours of airtime.

I had it blind, and guessed Napa Cabernet 2015. Missed it by a decade. So interesting.

A little past its peak, but still delicious. I had the 2014 not too long ago, and it was drinking much better.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

Checkerboard Vineyards

Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

#AgedWineTuesday

Another delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from a Single Vineyard in Napa Valley.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity.

Showing black fruits with tobacco, chocolates, coffee, vanilla, cedar, licorice, spices and peppercorn.

Dry and very fruity on the palate with a long finish and round tannins.

Showing great complexity and mouthfeel. Rich, yet elegant and fruit forward.

Good right out of the bottle and probably better with airtime, but I didn't have that luxury, as the bottle finished right away.

Thank you Barry for sharing this with me.

I had this vintage 5 years ago (from a 750ml), and loved it too. This Magnum will continue to age nicely in the next 10 to 15 years.

Good by itself, and does not need any food, but will pair very nicely with a big piece of steak.

A blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1%Merlot and 1% Petit Verdot. Grapes are grown at 1,200 feet of elevation, and were aged in oak barrels for 26 months. A small production of only 250 cases.

This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from the very famous Martha’s Vineyard in
Napa Valley.

This 35 year old is drinking very nicely now. Nice to see how it held up.

Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Elegant and tasty. Showing nice complexity at this point.

A little muted right out of the bottle, and needed a few minutes to open up. Even better after an hour of airtime.

Château La Tour Haut-Brion

Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

#AgedWineTuesday

Dark brown/ ruby in color with a wide brick rim.

On the nose blackberries, plums, oak, earth, vegetables, wet leaves, herbs, black pepper, forest floor and light metals.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, light vanilla, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, earth, tobacco leaf, vegetable and black pepper.

Short finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

I'm pretty sure I would have liked it much better 10 years ago, but this 40 year old Bordeaux is still drinking very nicely. So nice to see that.

I did not decant it, and it didn't last for more than an hour. After 15 minutes of airtime, tannins show up and bring more structure to the wine.

This gem is from the great 1982 vintage, and drinking these kind of wines is always a great experience. It's like a history book in a glass.

Thank you John for sharing this with me.

Really enjoyed it by itself, and paired very nicely with a stinky Camembert cheese.
