Blackberry, cassis, vanilla, raspberry, eucalyptus, licorice and oak. Great structure and velvety tannins.

Surprised nicely by this expressive nose that goes on and on with layers of aromas such as blackcurrant, plum, moka, cedar, vanilla and licorice. The mouth is medium bodied and very approachable right now, medium tannins with some softness and silkyness in terms of texture, fruit and balance as well on a finish that has decent length and is very good, drinks like a charm. Comparable to a good Bordeaux but no need to wait 10+ years. 92-93

Nez qui m’a agréablement surpris car très expressif et très aromatique avec beaucoup de complexité et des couches d’arômes. Réglisse, vanille, fruits noirs, cassis, moka, cèdre, prune. La bouche est de corps moyen, très approchable malgré la jeunesse, du fruit en masse, fraîcheur et précision, des tannins assez souples et de touché fort agréable mais avec quand même une belle structure, bien équilibré, savoureux. Se compare à un bon Bordeaux mais sans attendre 10-12 ans, une belle surprise pour moi.

A good, but not amazing Napa cab. Ramey is always dependable, and one of our favorites. The bottle warmed up a bit so this one wasn't at peak. Paired well with a coffee and ancho crusted elk backstrap. The fruit really works well, bringing out the flavor of the elk. Yum.

2014. $64 Tasted Feb 2020. I am forecasting this wine will open beautifully but it is too tannic and tart right now. There is a lot of structure to this wine and good berry underneath but for now it is too tannic. 84

Compared to last night's Frogs Leap... No contest. This is much better.

Silky mouth feel, perfect medium + body, green bell pepper, just delightful.

Observers may have discovered my nonlinearity at 9.2 in my scale. For whatever reason, I have made a mental threshold. 9.3 and above represents the best of what I've yet to experience. Now, I'm quite certain, that one day I will discern 1 or more other higher natural breaks. But my wallet cannot yet allow that.
