Just a few bottles from an awesome Open That Bottle Night celebration this past weekend.

Another wine with a great future but is extremely young right now. If guessing blind, I don’t think I would have called this Howell Mtn...seemed more like Pritchard Hill. Fruit is very inky and juicy. Freshly squeezed blackberries and raspberries. Chalky on the palate. Some sweet tobacco up front on the palate but it turns pretty herbal towards the end. Give it time.

Heck of a Napa Cab. 15% (stated) ABV, but didn’t taste quite so alcoholic. Some earth and good black and dark red fruits. Enjoyed with a bone-in ribeye and assorted mushrooms as the main, and three assorted cheese course. Like much of California wine, just doesn’t tie into the food the way old world wines do. At Charlie Palmer Steak - Napa (not coming up on Foursquare?!?).
