Fun afternoon at Classic with great company. Glad you could join us Bryan.

This surprised me. Very balanced and plenty of fruit (and life) left here. The baby fat and oak have been shed away showing more pure and ripe blackberries, black cherries and cherry tobacco. Espresso beans with dark cocoa followed by cedar and herbal notes toward the finish. Acidity and tannins keep structure really solid here. Impressed.

Easily in the top 10 PNV lots I tasted. Very lucky bidder who took this home.

This Bordeaux style blend is where it's at! Gorgeous on the nose, with currants, thyme, and tobacco. So balanced, so easy to drink, one can finish a bottle on one's own!

Got to be one of the best reds I have ever experienced. This is a very small production item for Frank Family and has won multiple awards with this wine, including best red in Napa for 7 years straight. Can't wait to let the 2012 sit in the cellar for 2-5 years and give it a try.
