Seriously, it was that good. Everything was in perfect harmony. Medley of red, blue and black fruits...rich and ripe without being too much. Spiced cocoa, nutmeg and graphite lead off the front palate before a velvet like texture hits the middle showing all the fruit spectrum in baked pie form. Lengthy and structured finish. A true stunner from @Keith Fisher

Again to all thanks for your understanding and this was second bottle with friends - I like Schrader and love the RBS - wine may not fix your problem but it does give you a nice way to express your love for someone or something

Another example of a young Napa cab that is open for business and shouting delicious from the rooftop. In the past I've tasted young at the winery and then I let it sit in my cellar for a good long time. My head is turning and I'm coming around to the joys of youth. Like the 2013 Lokoya I had recently this was singing. Smooth entry, deep dark expressive fruit, graphite, long beautiful finish. Appreciated @Michael Meyer

I was disappointed at first but it definitely developed over the course of the meal. We decanted an hour prior to dinner but should have decanted three hours prior. It is an absolute rock star which needed to spread it's wings in order to be enjoyed. It's a rockstar!

This is so nugget worthy,
Double shift for 10 days straight has brought me to my knees,.
The buffalo sauce seems to over power the wine, I suggest the habanero ranch as the better alternative, bbq sauce is just for kids

Like sticking your nose into some of the most beautiful new French oak barrels. Well crafted. Improves with time open.

Shamelessly robbing the cradle, this is like a barrel sample but just fantastic.

Young. Took 30 mins to open in wide decanter. Very long finish. Dark and brooding. Classic currant notes with bittersweet chocolate on the finish.a
