Flight 1 (7 notes)

Red
2007 M Squared Cabernet Sauvignon Old Vines Monte Rosso Vineyard USA, California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Valley
100 points
Had this with Mike. Wonderful wine, polenta and pork roast and stories about great old times. This is really one of those wines that goes beyond scores. Classic structure. Ripe not port. The iron fist in a velvet glove. Good job Mike. Easily another ten years of aging potential.
Red
1999 Opus One USA, California, Napa Valley
90 points
Still quite vital with a complex nose of briar and toasted oak. Lean austere tannin structure that still is evolving. Very tasty.
Red
1991 Duckhorn Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley USA, California, Napa Valley
89 points
Very nice and not showing its age. Quite soft and smooth at this point but the fruit and tannin structure were very nice. The linger was excellent. Nicely cellared, still has a few years to go.
Red
2013 Daou Vineyards Reserve Aux USA, California, Central Coast, Paso Robles
90 points
In a line up of expensive North Coast reds this Paso Syrah was too rich, too underdeveloped and a bit big to match the food. Needed more aging time. Great wine but in three to five years.
Red
2011 William Harrison Cabernet Franc Rutherford USA, California, Napa Valley, Rutherford
91 points
Perfectly developed and it its prime. Great with the lunch.
Red
2008 Charles Krug Winery (Peter Mondavi Family) Family Reserve Generations USA, California, Napa Valley
92 points
Great wine on a special day. Perfectly developed and at its prime.
Red
2013 Charles Krug Winery (Peter Mondavi Family) Family Reserve Generations USA, California, Napa Valley
92 points
Old style elegant Napa Cabernet, an iron fist in a velvet glove, extremely drinkable both young and then in 20 years. Concentrated and spicily but not over ripe. A privilege to taste in the Carriage House
