Missing their Howell Mtn. fruit; which is now a new pricey single variety that they sell. Still one of the rare places in Napa that doesn’t charge for tasting 6 plus wines. #RESPECT #OLDSCHOOL

‘12 Martha’s Vineyard was stunning.

Now that's Bordeaux! A purity of fruit with a compliment of oak. Balance is restored. Young but friendly. #oldschool #oldworld — 5 years ago

On the nose; half baked & half stewed, ripe fruits. Blackberries, black cherries, blueberries, black raspberries, plum, strong anise, black cherry cola, vanilla, cinnamon, wood shavings, loamy soils, volcanic minerals, violets and fresh dark florals. The body is medium with the tannins nearly completely resolved. The fruits are ripe & juicy and come in waves over the palate. Blackberries, black cherries, blueberries, black raspberries, plum, strawberries, strong anise, black cherry cola, vanilla, cinnamon, liqueur notes, heavily steeped black fruit tea, wood shavings, touch of leather, dry crushed rock powder, dry herbs, dry stems, loamy soils, volcanic minerals, violets and fresh dark florals. The acidity rains over the palate. The structure is soft, the length long & elegant, well balanced and the beautiful finish lasts over a minute. Still in good shape but needs to be enjoyed inside of three years. After 20 years in the bottle, she has become an elegant beauty! Photos of; their tasting bar, tasting room exterior, wine lab hovering over barrel room and their Estate. Still one of the very few places in Napa you can taste 4-5 wines at no charge. #oldschool #respect — 3 years ago

Exhibit "A" in the refutation of the premise that Napa can't make either great, age worthy Pinot. @saintsbury #oldschool #pinotnoir — 5 years ago

Rumor has it the winemaker doesn't have a computer or a fax machine. It's probably because he's busy making beauties like this one! — 5 years ago

Napa wines are where I got my start and '97-'02 was my playtime, it's great to taste an excellent wine like this 15 years later when people back then said Napa would only age 6-10 years tops. Many like this one can go 20, or in some cases 30 years. Cheers to the #oldschool which seems to be the #newschool. — 4 years ago
