Monthly WTF wine group. Special event this month as Ben provided all ‘80s Napa cabs. A few of us chipped in and provided some whites/bubbly.

Tied for wine of the flight. The fruit here was much more dense and full. Acidity wasn’t as in tact as the Pine Ridge, but what a flavor packed finish of black cherry, strawberry and clay.

Classic Napa Cab with some age on it. Drink now in my opinion.

Brooding dark red & black fruit on the nose, friendlier on the palate. But wait, where are my #MountVeeder tannins? Oh, right, they fell into my #Bacon-wrapped New York steak.

Impressively smooth and creamy in texture. A very glug-able Napa Cab from the mountains!
