This is the second red we enjoyed at Bowery Meat Company. Credit to the farmers: the quality of the fruit is pretty clear. Plump, hints of vanilla, juicy, voluptuous, it's a steak wine through and through.

From Trading Places movie - "Feeling good, Billie Ray" and followed by "Looking good, Louis" - using that to describe this wine - which is another big bold beautiful Napa cab with juice from the Beckstoffer to Kalon vineyard - decanted for three hours - it is ready and will deliver - Smiles for everyone (well I hope everyone but for sure I have one)

Fruit forward and very smooth on the finish. Not as flavorful as the diamond mountain but smoother

This is where you see a little more integration since it’s a 13 but what you really notice is a big step up in fruit quality. The best wine we tasted there.

Nice dark fruit with some leather.

Nice wine from a mid tier producer. Still has great To Kalon characteristics but definitely doesn't have the finish of a Hobbs or Realm (though can't beat the price). About as good as it's going to get though should be good for at least another 4 years.

Provenance Tokalon.. Happened to have a few 2006 that weren't part of my verticals. Tom is an amazing winemaker

Next baby is also a smiler - as Chicago says and I love to say "Saturday in the park - I think it was the Fourth of July"

Love that band and this wine

Too bad they have chosen to not use To Kalon grapes. Great wine!
