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 was my WOTN. Over 80% merlot, this is pretty silky. Nose was much sweeter than the Cabernet bottle. Didn’t catch the use of oak differences, but I felt like I got more red and black fruit out of this instead of a dominating oak presence. Nutmeg and cinnamon on the finish. Really nice after an hour or so. No doubt one of the most impressive looking bottles I’d ever seen! RParker 94pts.

Not the Cabernet,
This is the Signature mountain blend.
82% merlot
12% Cabernet
4% malbec
2% petit verdot.
This is probably the best looking bottle I've ever seen, raised letters & raised metal medallion, heavy thick bottle like one of Venge's bottles. Wine is great too, just a little early on opening this one, but had to see what was behind the curtain.
