This wine is a firm favourite in our house. This bottle of the 2016 was much less expressive than the previous. Still mocha and cherries but a little tired this time round. Guessing it was just an awkward time because the other bottle we had earlier in the year was a stunner.

So delicious. Plums, black cherry and Christmas spices. Lots going on and lots to love about it. This wine will also have a special place in our hearts because it was the first wine we opened after our son was born. Unbeknown to us before pulling it, the cork says "Love Your Mother".

Just fabulous. One of the best vintages yet. Dark, vibrant and full of character. One of the finest values in all of Napa Valley... 💥🔥🤪😍. Tasted during the Vinous Learn class on Undiscovered Napa Valley...

2014 Drinkward Peschon Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. Decanted for 90 minutes. Blackcurrent, graphite one the nose.
Color- Deep garnet.
Palate- Blackberries, blackcurrent, moderate spices throughout the glass. 2nd taste reveals- Licorice, baking chocolate, modest oak, splash of earthiness. Lingers for a bit. Better in a few more years. Drink over the next 10+ years.

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Entre Deux Mères is a gorgeous, inviting wine. Blackberry jam, lavender, spice, menthol and licorice are all pushed forward in this racy, succulent Cabernet Sauvignon. Touches of rose petal, mint and lavender add further shades of nuance over time. The 2015 spent 22 months in oak, 50% new. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, May 2019)

The 2013 beast 🐻 is starting to emerge from hibernation, but hasn’t fully woken up yet. Tannins have softened but are still firm and cut through a steak with ease. Fruit still fresh and lifted, bright and preserved by present acidity. Very good, but will only get better.

This is a dark profiled, very giving, somewhat complex, medium bodied wine that is utterly distinctly Napa Cab, in the best way possible. Decent value too.

Most vintages of this wine are great pop and pour candidates but this one really benefitted from some time in the decanter. Both the tannins and the acid are strong. Nice flavors of raspberry, cola, baking spices and vanilla with mineral notes on the finish.
