Introduction

This was a fantastic tasting. These are incredibly compelling wines. They have the richness of pie filling, aromatics that fill the glass, incredibly smooth textures. They are all excellent, and I'm excited to the current wines and future here.

2015 Alejandro Bulgheroni Cabernet Sauvignon Lithology To Kalon Vineyard USA, California, Napa Valley
96 points
Beautiful lavender aromatics. Very rich, blue fruit, touch of earth, touch of graphite. Excellent purity. Tannins were perfect. Smooth as silk, a better balance than most 2015s. Excellent wine.
Red
2016 Alejandro Bulgheroni Cabernet Sauvignon Lithology Beckstoffer Las Piedras USA, California, Napa Valley
98 points
The most interesting wine of the group. Dark blue fruit in its building blocks, but a touch of pepper and spice. A bit of cedar, just a touch, not overwhelming. Very well layered. Incredibly complex, very rich. Incredibly smooth tannin. Longest finish of the group.
Red
2016 Alejandro Bulgheroni Cabernet Sauvignon Lithology Dr. Crane USA, California, Napa Valley
98 points
Brilliant wine. Was fantastic to have after an Arrow and Branch Crane vertical. This wine is an excellent representation of this vineyard. The plush, rich, silky smooth Crane vibe is here. Dark fruit, blueberry pie. Less of the spice/cedar tones than the Piedras, but a touch of graphite gives it a bit of earthiness (almost like a Cortina gravel nuance). Has 100 point potential. 98+.

Wow. This is an experience. Incredibly fragrant, smells like fictional blueberry perfume. Rich flavor, decadent. Very blue fruit driven, a touch of sage, a touch of cedar, perfect tannin structure. Finish sings on for days. I've never experienced the aromatics that fill the glass to this degree. This is truly special wine.
