A beautiful cab that continues to age gracefully. Delicious right now with the opportunity to age longer in the bottle.

Decanted about 1 hour. Still young but there was no “greenness” on the nose or palate. On the nose Hints of vanilla, brown sugar and bright red fruit. In the mouth, beautiful juice with a little licorice. Nice tannic structure. Very nice wine at an early age.

Definitely surprised with this wine. Decanted 2+ hours. Expected a lighter wine that would pair with pasta/pesto. On the nose this gamay is very herbaceous with mushroom, forest look and lots of funk (hung smoked meats). In the mouth, subtle fruit with a very light, fruity flavor. The wine is young but very good and nicely surprised. A nice interpretation of this grape by Ken P.

It has been 2 years since we last tasted this vintage. Decanted about 1 hour and did a side by side with a 17 Windy Oaks Special Burgundian. The BF held its own but not as complex. Red fruit, vanilla and spice. Medium tannins with nice fruit in the mouth.

First tasted at the tasting room. A vine brought from Burgundy and grown outside of Carmel Valley. Decanted about 1 hour. Lots of copper in the color. Much earthier and fuller than Normal US Pinot’s. Very Burgundian. The wine continued to develop through the evening. A special wine.

It has been 2 1/2 years since we last tasted this vintage. Took to Rudy’s steakhouse, opened and let it breathe awhile. Big red fruit, coke and vanilla on the nose. Beautiful fruit blend on mild tannins in the mouth. Hints of spice, leather, smoke and pepper. Long velvety finish makes you want more. In a really nice place right now.

Decanted >2 hours. It has been 1 year since we last tasted this vintage. Dark red ripe fruit, this wine is easy drinking. Nice maturity but still has a lot of cellar life left.

Wine is still young but getting there. Flavors really begin to show themselves as wine warms up. Meyer lemon, hints of oak with a bit of wordiness. Very clean. Delicious

Classic Napa Cab. 4 hour decant. Beautiful big red fruit with mild to medium tannins. Long, juicy finish. Drank this now based upon Miner’s drinking guide. While it might not improve much I could see this wine holding for another 10 years.

Not as good as previously noted and tasted in 2020. Might have been the Corkcicle cups as opposed to glass. Nice fruit but a little disappointed based on previous tasting.

Popped & poured to end the night. Fabulous Bordeaux style red blend. All the classic characteristics of a French Bordeaux with Washington big red grapes. Cab heavy but that is what it should be. Delicious with many years left to hold this if you want.

Decanted >3 hours. Still young but a nice bouquet of vanilla, pepper and blue fruit. In the mouth bold juice with spice and medium to heavy tannins. More spice on the finish. I would hold for a while before going in again but this is a beautiful wine.

Diggings Family Walla Walla grapes. Decanted >1 hour. Wine is still young but showing nice complexity. Big red fruit, tobacco, spice and pepper on the nose. Beautiful juice with vanilla, more spice, leather and earth. Medium to bold tannins at this time. Will be fantastic in a few years.

Very young wine but wanted to try a bottle. 2+ hour decant. Not a lot of the typical cabbiness that I look for but nice juice and a nice drinking wine that will improve with time.

Still relatively young according to the aging chart. Delicious red fruit with lots of complexity. Medium tannins and a long finish. Drinking nicely but has many years left in the bottle.
