Legend Vineyard Exclusive

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Deep dark color. Red fruit and earth on the nose. A little rough to start even with an hour decanted. Needed to breathe for a while. Started to get smooth and show its complexity with more air time, much like Dan Lebatard. #garyveewineclub — 5 months ago

Westerly Wines

Bentrock Vineyard Chardonnay 2014

Day 2. Deep and complex nose: orange rind, lemon oil, ginger, wax, and hints of saffron. Feels rustic, yet new world. Vibrant on the palate, with lemon meringue, honey crisp apple, and citrus juice. Chalk undertones meet firm acid. Medium weight, with persistence on the finish. Felt a little more on the fresh side yesterday. My favorite wine so far in the #garyveewineclub. Drink on Thanksgiving.

Alta

Oso Malo Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Opened to breath for 6+ hours. Sexy, smooth, French oak wrapped boysenberry. Green pepper, cola, licorice on the nose too. Dark fruits and dark flavors- expresso and cacao. Fresh and bright on the palate, old world style. Red raspberry and chocolate. Smooth and integrated tannins round out the finish. #garyveewineclub — a year ago

Viña Perez Cruz

Reserva Maipo Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Old world feel. Beef jerky, dark berries, tar, and eucalyptus. Fresh and lively on the palate. Black raspberry and cassis. Soft mouthfeel with subdued tannins. Slurpy and easy drinking, with layers on the nose. Solid mid-week Cabernet. #garyveewineclub — a year ago

El Barraco

Rock Rose Viñas Viejas Jara Garnacha 2015

Red cherry fruit, maybe tobacco and black pepper nose. I question if this wine finished malolactic fermentation. On the palate, there’s a strong metallic, aluminum foil taste, partnered with tart, bitter cherry, and citric acid. Unfortunately this is a dumper, as in down the sink. Bitter, austere, and frankly unenjoyable. The first swing and miss of the #garyveewineclub — a year ago

Storiche Cantine di Radda in Chianti

Contiscaia Winemakers Selection Rosso Toscano Sangiovese Blend 2016

Needs a little air... blackberry pie, blackcherry, vanilla bean, and cinnamon. Well balanced palate with firm, but integrated tannins. Dark fruit is persistent and over-delivers on the finish. #garyveewineclub — a year ago

Esser Vineyards

Monterey County Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Soy sauce, black peppercorn, green olive, cassis, and clove. Dark red fruits, mocha and earthy notes stand out on the palate. Well balanced, juicy, and soft. More of an old world feel. Very solid weeknight drinker. #garyveewineclub — a year ago

Le Brun de Neuville

Champagne Blanc De Blancs Brut

Celebratory wine... zesty, nutty, golden apple, and creme fresh. Fresh and vibrant with a round, creamy finish. Reminds me of bitting in to a honey crisp apple covered in almond milk. #garyveewineclub — a year ago
