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.

A gift from Larry Tsai himself! Beautifully structured Cabernet.. red fruits galore on the nose, with a hint of cinnamon, and milk chocolate as it opens up in glass. Rich redcurrant on the pallet with a touch of pipe tobacco.. lovely stuff as always!

I love Moone-Tsai (it's pronounced "Chai", by the way). For a Philippe Melka wine, I find them to be very under the radar. Their 2012s are exceptional - among the best in Napa Valley
