First of the blind tasting for Father's Day weekend.

Medium garnet to ruby red. Nose was soft with red and blue fruits, as well as some vanilla, cinnamon, and a touch floral from the bottle. Day two added a bit more oak influence. Wine gained some elegant and feminine characteristics on the nose with some air. Medium and well integrated tannins (5/10) and medium bodied. Palate had light layers of vanilla, red berries, blue fruit undertones, cinnamon and a touch of cola. More cedar with some air. Well balanced and smooth. Medium plus to long finish. Drink till 2019.

This was our first experience with Adobe Road. Definitely needed the air, from the start this was a little flabby and underwhelming, not what is expected for a huge vintage from a well known vineyard. With time it gained some soft complexities and integrated a bit more. Seems a lot older than a 2012, if you have some we would recommend drinking.

Cherries and red fruit hopping around. Big big cab and it really needs time to mellow out but it was great especially after having so many wines, this one popped.

W.S. Grand Tour Vegas: Deep, rich dark berry fruit with nicely integrated oak. Smooth, lingering finish. Excellent.

The 2013 A-Block ($175/bottle) is my favorite. This is the Cab to end all Cabs.

A superb Cab. Lovely burgundy color. The dark cherry notes are pronounced, with a bit of leather and mocha on the nose. The taste is super balanced. For such a young Cab, the tannins are velvety. The fruit gives way to the typical leather and pepper flavors. The finish lingers for several minutes.

Rich nose of cassis maple syrup. Nice textured palete. Rich dark fruits wash over the mid palette, which finish with the slightest hint of stewed fruits.
Thank you to
@Martin G Rivard for the proposal.
Happy late valentines to one and all.
