Monthly guys group wine meet-up. No theme tonight aside from “it better be good”.

Bordeaux, bordeaux, Bordeaux. Dusted cocoa leaves, stewed blackberries. Hint of cranberries. Spices on the palate with fresh squeezed blackberries. Touch of leather on the finish with some pepper. Head strong through 2+hrs of being open. Napa royalty.

Another 4th Friday for the books. What a much needed time out of the house and to be with friends after this past week.

Randy Dunn is a genius and there’s really nothing else to say. I’ve been fortunate to have the ‘87 and ‘88 within a 6-week span and both are drinking absolutely wonderfully. Nice tannic structure still. Rhubarb spice, muddled blackberries, and herbal spice. The finish is still quite lengthy! Another reason why Howell Mtn is my favorite AVA out of Napa.

2003, this wine at times seems un-ageable. Super tight and complex at the same time. Old school at its best

Since my first two bottles I brought to dinner were crap I had to order something off the list . Painfully young but has the potential to be a great bottle .

Took a bit to open but then a stunner. Herbal, dark fruit. Scorched earth. Great wine. Thanks Julia!

Lean, herbal, red fruits. A great expression of the ‘89 vintage. Third time tasting
