It was great but the Myraid Cab was better and not as good as the last time I had it

Now that said I would not be embarrassed or kick it out of the bed (excuse the analogy in these days of
#metoo) but just unfortunately had a stronger competitor last night

Still I think the wine is beautiful with a highly structured palette and silky tannins made it smooth but lacking in the boldness I wanted and the finish was not extraordinary

That said I love it and recommend it and even though it will cellar I am not sure it will get better so drink it if you got it

Big smiles last night

Wow... this is probably a new favorite of mine... one of the most supple Napa Cabs you can find, made by top 9 wine maker and consultant Philipe Melka, definitely a reflection of top pedigree. Lots of tobacco and coffee notes and a finish of great length. Overall very well balanced and a showstopper for any get together.

This was good, but not great. Nice Cabernet profile. But the finish was a bit Interested to revisit this brand in the future.

The belle of the ball.. Waited a long time to try this.. What a gorgeous wine. Bouquet of rose petrels, sweet cherry, raspberry, and a touch of earth. Insanely velvety smooth mouthfeel with hints of cassis, mocha, licorice, violet, and a long finish. So nice.

Stacked up well next to the Pessac-Leognan - definitely more punch with typical Napa style. Longer finish and fuller bodied than the Bordeaux.

On the nose watercress, fern, dark berries, anise, hint of saddle with a macchiato echoed in the exhale. Active tannins, bone dry finish. Lovely experience. Decant first and/or use Veritas Riedel glasses. Mmmmm.
