2007 Louis Latour Corton Domaine Latour

Corton Grand Cru Pinot Noir more

This wine has evolved in the past couple of years and taken on more weight. The fruit has become more rounded and pronounced. Drinking well. Not memorable but very nice and a good value.

Still very young. Huge ripe black and red berry fruit. Bacon and a touch of earth. Paired well with steak. This wine has a big personality and will not appeal to all.

Almost a 94. From magnum. Decanted. Great dark fruit with many secondary notes. Complex and smooth. Got slightly better on day 2.

Outstanding. Compared to other 2007 Napa cabs this was the most balanced, also considerably lower in alcohol. Great depth of flavors with slightly more earth notes and darker fruit than the other 2 cabs we tried side by side.

Compared against a couple of other 2007 Napa cabs of similar caliber. Decanting helped open it up and release secondary notes. This seemed a little out of balance, although all the parts were there (fruit, oak, tannins, a little light on acidity) but perhaps just needs another year or two to come together. Should certainly hold up for several more years.

2003 Heitz Cellar Port Ink Grade

Napa Valley Port Blend more

3/29/2015 - Anonymous Likes this wine: 92 points

In comparison to the normal non-vintage Ink Grade this is much bigger and deeper. This is still a baby and easily has a couple of decades to go depending upon how you like your port. Huge fruit with some complexity - bolder than expected.

1997 Robert Mondavi Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

more

3/29/2015 - Anonymous Likes this wine: 90 points

Agree with other tasting notes that this has some old world BDX notes. Two things are apparent with this wine. First, that it is well made with nice balance - far better than the Mondavi's that I've had from the 2000's. Second, the fruit from the vintage, which was ripe, shows through and continues to take center stage. This wine over its life has evolved from bright red fruit to darker sweet fruit. The tannins are still present and to a degree mouth coating. I also agree with others that this is in a nice place and while it should hold for a while longer, it is on the downward side of the slope.

2007 Lewelling Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena

more

3/29/2015 - Anonymous Likes this wine: 93 points

This wine is super extracted with massive fruit. It is not for everyone but it is impressive what has been achieved with regards to the ripeness and density of the fruit. The alcohol is noticeable on the finish and this could pass off as a port. We compared it to other premium Napa 07s and finished it off next to a port - this had the most fruit of the cabs and was close to the port. It needs decanting and will show different layers of flavors. Curious how it will develop over time once the fruit calms down.

Well made and has stood the test of time. It is on the downhill side of the slope now but may be able to hold on for another decade depending upon storage conditions. Better than expected.

Slightly unbalanced with alcohol showing through on the finish. Suspect this may be starting to lose some of the fruit that initially covered the high alcohol. Still inky purple with lots of fruit but I would not hold too much longer. Nice wine.

From half bottle. Much better than 6 months ago. This is coming together nicely and is a good example of Cinq. I expect this will continue to develop for a few more years.

Well made wine with great balance. One of the best examples of Napa cab I've had from the second half of the 90's that was built to last more than five years.

This bottle was drinking nearly perfect. Decanted for about 30 minutes and then in glass for two hours with some development. Balanced and great fruit and range throughout front mid and finish. Better than other top Pinots I've had including other WS, Sea Smoke and Kosta Browne. Perhaps just a special bottle at its peak - everyone tasting agreed it was exceptional.

2001 Beaulieu Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Clone 4

Rutherford more

Wow. Many 2001 Napa cabs I've had recently have been disjointed and lacked freshness as they did not hold up despite the hype of the vintage. This is very well made with great balance - nearly no sediment in the bottle and relatively low alcohol by today's standards at 13.6. Exceptional fruit in front and mid palate with firm tannins on a solid finish. This can age another decade. Classic Napa cab notes - decanted two hours and in glass a third - continued to develop.

This is on the downhill slope. A little disappointing considering vineyard and producer - maybe had too high hopes. The wine is unbalanced and hard to know if the fading fruit is the main culprit or if it was always this way. Alcohol burn on the back-end and upfront oak. Drink up if you've got it and not worth buying at this point. 90pts based on it being a solid effort.

Not as good as previous bottle. This wine is high in alcohol and it shows. This bottle seemed to be disjointed and not well integrated - highly unbalanced. I don't think this was flawed.
