Introduction

Had a great time with family and friends. The wine and steaks were great!!!

Flight 1 (2 notes)

Red
1998 Robert Mondavi Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve USA, California, Napa Valley
92 points
Nice red color, just slightly bricking towards the edges. Great nose on this wine. Anise, dark berries, meaty, leather and tobacco. On the palate I picked up some floral, cedar and a some pepper notes. Tannins totally resolved at this point.
Red
2005 Sean Thackrey Orion Rossi Vineyard USA, California, Napa Valley, St. Helena
94 points
Nice dark purple coloring. Great nose on this wine. I got cherries, anise, cracked pepper, mint and tobacco/leather component. Great lush palate, tannins are present and big but silky in texture. Nice long finish. Excellent wine paired with our wide variety of steaks.
