A beautiful gift from Mimi, Brett & Coco during our Pop Up Wedding. Yes we shared it with everyone... there's no place like home... for a wedding!

Very impressive in its style, but needs some time to assimilate the new oak. If you own both their wines I'd drink the M. Etain now & hold this.

Tahoe restaurant. Suprisingly approachable early. Dusty tannins and superbly balanced. Can't wait to try our allocation in a few years time.

Cherry candy apple and cherry tobacco with a floral hint. Bold fruit and wet gravel on the palate - another amazing wine!!

Another 1/2 price Monday at bourbon steak! First taste of the scarecrow made from the cab vines in Napa from the late 40s.

Similar to the '09 but shows much more potential. In 3-5 years, this will be fantastic. Big and bold, firm yet yielding. Needs time.
