Another 4th Friday for the books! What a variety this month!

Compared to some of the other older Napa wines we tasted, I never got any green notes here. Balanced. Tannins are mostly hidden, so I’d start drinking if you have any. Very red and black fruit dominant. Truffled mushrooms, oiled leather and the other secondary notes are getting more pronounced.

This wine is absolutely stunning! These wines made by David Ramey, are the only wines from California that I have tasted at 10+ years old that have no ethyl acetate (shoe polish) aroma or taste at all. This wine is true CA power and finesse! Absolutely perfect. Still with vibrant fruit, fine tannins and a very long finish! Absolutely amazing wine! Could probably go another 5 years but glad we had it now. Balance is just right. Was enjoyed with prime top sirloin.

I have always loved this vintage of Rudd’s JC made by Ramey. This is a classic older Cali Cabernet made in a Bordeaux style showing dark cherry, red & blackberry, cassis, leather, mocha, graphite, tobacco leaf & rose petal.

Always loved Jericho Canyon vintages. Smokey, dusty and rock solid. Coffee and tobacco on the nose. Blackberry and spice on the palate. Wonderful combination

17 years old with a vibrant nose and long Napa typical finish. Oddly the mid palate is wearing thin... but still expressive at the book ends. Throws so much sediment that Ramey could replant the vineyard.
