Napa Valley Wine and Food Excursion; 9/30/2013-10/5/2013 (Napa Valley): This deep ruby wine is a blend of 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot and 33% Cabernet Franc. A lush, velvety and toasty style, it flaunts aromas of black currants, blueberries, vanilla and lavender. Medium-bodied and round on the palate, it delivers flavors which mirror the nose, but the oak component steps to the forefront. The medium-weight tannins are quite polished and the alcohol (listed as 14.2%) is seamless. Creamy and toasty in the middle, the wine concludes with medium length. While certainly enjoyable, this is a wine where the oak is more than just complementary. Drink now-2020.

It is heavily oaked and hearty. We will see whether it settles down and integrates after breathing.

After breathing, the spice, dark fruit and ash stepped to the forefront of scent; the rough edges rounded, and the palate was chewy, rich, vanilla, coffee, milk chocolate, licorice and tobacco flavors. Even the moderately long finish is viscous with ample tannins. The charred oak and Cabernet Franc dominate the peronality of this wine.

Aromas of black cherry, a little cedar, and a little leather. Big black fruit on the medium to full bodied palate. Napa through and through. Doing very well at age ten. Peaking, but probably will not improve.

Rich nose of red cherries and raspberries. Similar flavors on the palate with a creamy smoothness. Medium bodied with a nice mouth feel and a satisfying finish. A steal at the state monopoly store sale price of $17.

Aromas of red berries and some toasted oak with some floral action. Medium to full bodied. Red fruit with a little herb on the palate. A decent wine, but nothing to get worked up about.

This wine has a great nose of blackcurrant, vanilla, and violet with some cedar. The blackcurrant really comes through on the taste, which is mildly tart and rich with a light cherry vanilla overtone. The finish is leathery with some tobacco and dusty cocoa tannins. The finish is pretty long. I like this wine, especially for the $15 I spent on it.

Undrinkable, I wouldn't even use it for cooking. Sharp to the nose. Bitter, overly hot on the palate. $2 at Trader Joe's would have been better spent.

Not scored because it was drunk with too much palate fatigue after a blind tasting. It came across as balanced and well structured. Probably about a 90.

.375ml bottle - Deep dark, rich red color. Nose of dark cherry and plum. Medium weight with good structure. Not much of a finish; alcohol is well integrated at this point. Merlot grape dominates this one for me. Nice effort, but definitely needs more cellar time to pull together -- Drink in 2011 or so.

Tasted 3-8-09. Dark opaque maroon burgundy. Not much nose initially. Smelled dense, deep, integrated, some spicy oak, but did not give up much. Nose & palate noticeably less luscious than 18-24 mos. ago. Palate fairly seamless, tasted the cab franc, needed to be sipped with a meal, considerable density. A bit more fruit came around eventually. Impression was weighty & intense but without the delicious complexities tasted previously. Tasted same bottle the next day & found a little more fruit, some currants, still dense & a chewy almost sludgy quality. Not as bad as this sounds but certainly drank better in '07.

Dan Cushin brought into Wildfire OB.
Very dark violet.
Nose of candied dark red berries, casis, leather and cedar.
Balanced. Somewhat thin on the palate, yet this fits the wine's character just right.
Delicate but quite enjoyable.

Popped and poured. Tasty blend here. As with a lot of 01's, give it some air time. Fruit forward with a smokey finish.

Bordeaux style blend with tannins that are not too harsh - opened up nicely after about 1/2 hour of decanting. Nice fruit without being sweet or cloying.
