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.

'98 was panned by the critics. Eff the critics. Really impressive, I must say.

Birth year bottle for daughter #2 and college graduation celebration. Unlike her, this one’s way past its prime. πŸ‘©β€πŸŽ“

Cherries, cranberries, bell pepper, leather and spicebox. Lighter and leaner than expected, fine grained tannines, lacking some length and complexity.
A nice wine, but nothing more. Poor QPR.

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.

Killer vintage for Rudd that is Bordeaux styled.
