Part 1 of the final and main event for the Fall WNH. The most spectacular lineup of wines I’ve ever seen, and an overall wonderful ending to an amazing trip with fantastic people.

Wow. This was flat out spectacular! Opulent and silky. Harmonious medley of red, blue and black fruit on the nose. Open for business. Fig, nutmeg topped mocha, baked blue and black fruit pie on the palate with a beautiful finish. Dusty. A standout bottle from

Another drool worthy Napa cult. Beaming, pillared and utterly sumptuous - am explosion of black fruited goodness, without feeling out of the reigns. Young, but a pleasure to drink.

Have drank several vintages over the past year to include a few vertical. By far the most approachable.

Voluptuous is the first word that comes to mind with this big Cab. A medley of aromas with plum, cinnamon, tar and mocha infused dark berries.

04, 05, 06 Sloan- All quite different. Not a bad way to kick off the night.

Part of a vertical of 04, 05 and 06. Needs time to open up. Has 10+ years ahead of it.
