A moldy label didn’t stop this from pairing beautifully with beef tenderloin on Xmas. Took about 3 hrs to open up fully #napacab #xmasdinner

Love the 2013 here! Fresher and less oaky than previous vintages, this seriously built-up yet generous "House Wine" is better than ever! Great balance on the coffee-tinged finish.

Powerful and very elegant with strong yet polished tannins, fine acidity and spicy minerality framed by toasty but balanced oak.

08'Lindstrom Cabernet. Decanted for 90 minutes. It's certain ready to go. Medium + bodied. The color dark ruby red. The nose is drowning in floral notes. Luscious, velvet, creamy smooth cab. Very softened tannins & light acidity. This wine is peeking now. It's got Celia Welch's fingerprints all over it! 8+ good years.

Elegant soft and velvet. The crowd pleaser. Celia has her fingerprints all over this.

Last bottle of 2007. Somewhat disappointing with plum jam, allspice, cloves and toasty oak, finishing with very ripe fruit flavors, but not much drive, nor complexity.
