Decent Napa Cabernet. Dark ripe currants, round, full bodied, soft & silky tannins. @ Pebble Beach Food & Wine.

Nice Cab with soft tannins and not over bearing oak. Probably could use a little more time to really open up. Howell Mtn product.

The prep for my Napa trip continues as Classic hosted Hertelendy Winery tonight. Extremely small production with PTitus as the consulting winemaker. Vineyards located just below the Howell Mtn designation.

This is great, but it needs a lot of time (and that’s coming from someone who enjoys their wines younger). Raspberries, espresso, cocoa, and the oak was trying to run the show (but not overbearing). Balance of fruit and slight spice on the finish. RParker 96pts.

Another Cab...bold dark fruits, licorice. Muted spice & currant with vanilla hints. Long lush silky tannin finish.

Another wine I've never heard of, it received a 96 so figured I'll give it a try.
Nothing distinctive about it, just a Cabernet. Actually only 76% cab then petite verdot, merlot & malbec
Where have all the Knockmores gone😞,
This has the stuffing, it just needs years to come around, not an early drinker.

Very special wine. Needs some time to develop.
