Today was an absolutely fantastic Friday hosting at the City Club by @Dan Fitzgerald. 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds, 1 dessert wine. Great job Dan!

The fourth of four Colgin’s served blind. My co-favorite. From the get-go, it was super concentrated, herbal, savory and just a hint of black fruit. Almost chewy in how dense it was. Smoky charcoal, wild herbs, cassis, and truffled blackberries. Still quite dry and tannic, even with the long decant. My initial, and final, guess was Colgin Syrah. Loved it.

100 points WA but surprisingly not over the top as I expected.

Every time I've had this bottle it's been a revelation. It's just everything you want from Napa.

05' It needs a good hour decanting. 100pt 55%CB 25% Merlot 11% CF 9%PV. Full-bodied. Black current, sweet black cherry, ripped blackberry, chocolate dipped cherries. This wine lingers on the back of your palate for a minute! You could sit this down for another 15 years.

From Michael Beaulac. Black olive, black fruit aromas, long, sweet finish. Multilayered.
