November’s 4th Friday was a big hit. There is no way I’ll be able to upload all the wines, nor give them the reviews they deserve, but there were a few worthy of mentioning!

Could not believe how good this was in terms of how open it was drinking. This is one of those wines that I would describe as sexy. Rich, opulent, and hedonistic like. This is plush and elixir like Napa cabernet in a really good drinking window. Baked blue and black fruits, nutmeg, baking spices and graphite on the nose. Sweet pipe tobacco, violets and milk chocolate drizzle over mixed berries. Looking forward to my visit in about 8 weeks. Thanks

Today is my me and my wife's 1 year anniversary. No notes for this super awesome, special wine. It was Moone Tsai we drank at our wedding as a gift from Larry and MarryAnn Tsai, so it only seemed fitting to pull a Moone Tsai from the cellar and have a great 2012 to reminisce. Cheers to the rest of our lives. 😀🥂

Absolutely delicious and luxurious, like liquid velvet. Did not decant it. Had it with a baguette and some Brie.

Ready for some blatant honesty? This '12 Moone Tsai is drinking so well right now that I opened one yesterday...and another one tonight. Sure, MT's wines are known to age well, but to me this wine is peaking at this absolute moment. As in on August, 2 2016! Drink one right now, and thank me tomorrow...

Nice full soft body. Fruits are round ruby creamy and lush. There's nearly no bite in this 13. Tannins are full but round and easy on the palate. Blackberries, black plum, dark cherries, blueberries, oak is done just right, rich black moist soil, minerals are very relaxed. Acidity is dead on and finish is long and beautiful.

Super lush, great balance between fruit tannin and even a hint of smoke. Just a hint of acid in the finish that is just right. 15.3%
