FIL came in town, so we pulled a hot young thing (‘15 Myriad Elysian Dr. Crane) and this mature elegant beauty queen. Opened and into the decanter. Notes of funk and fall forest floor emanated from the decanter. Only minor bricking on the edges.

Checked in first at a little under 4 hrs. This is a deep viscous powerhouse, easily visually confused with Napa but for the nose. Sweet delicious BDX nose of earthy dirt, funk, crushed blackberries and mushrooms. On the palate, still young and somewhat tannic structured. Cassis, blackberry, black cherry and complimentary hints of red raspberry and red cherry. Even with the decant, still much sediment to be found. 96 for now, needs more air.

At 5 hr, a touch of mint, spice box and burnt embers appear complimenting the prior notes. The palate does has flattened a bit becoming a little more linear with a bit more tannic bite. Still 96.

At 6 hrs when the Flannery filets were ready, this showed it bests and raced ahead of the competition. The hard edges gone everything in unison. A horse race, won at the stretch.

In this face to face battle, it’s a draw. Napa lovers will claim the Myriad won, BDX lovers will claim it was never close and the Pavie won. I just had two great wines—who cares what they think?

FIL came in town, so we pulled a hot young thing and a mature elegant specimen (‘05 Pavie). 2.5 hr decant, lovely heavenly nose, big, bold, enticing. Dark, viscous texture, Dr Crane nose all the way, spice box, fresh cut white flowers, touch of purple fruit. The palate matched the nose, chocolate, dark fruit, hint of ripe plum, Black Forest cake, still some drying tannins on a long finish with bitter chocolate liquer notes, along with a kiss of French oak and blueberry. Ripe, fruit forward, but in no way overdone. A beautiful yet young rendition of Dr. Crane. 95 for now.

A little under 4hrs, the nose exploded with floral perfume and dark berry liquer in addition to the prior notes, though the plum notes became heavier. Frankly, the nose was opulent! The palate gained depth, lost the intensity and smoothed into elegance. Chocolate and purple fruit notes became more prevalent, but the complexity increased. Crazy that just a bit more air made that much difference. 97 and I still think this gets better with more time. What a ride! Too bad I had to share!

When the Flannery filets showed up this ran out of gas and the fruit faded while the tannins took over. The delicious sprint simply ran out of gas, when compared to the Pavie.

In this face to face battle, it’s a draw. Napa lovers will claim the Myriad won, BDX lovers will claim it was never close and the Pavie won. I just had two great wines—who cares what they think?

From a 375ml, PNP and into the decanter. On open much like a young Bordeaux somewhat thin with simple and linear red cherry notes and the hint of the old barnyard. After 30 minutes, on the nose, some funky earth, red and black fruit, forest floor— simply lovely. The palate remained fairly simple, chalky tannins held back a simple red and black fruit profile with cherry lip balm, not bad, but not great. I’ve had a number of Frogs Leap cabs since 2003 and this is by far the most structured of them all. Interesting to see how these 375s age. Try again in 2025. Too young to score fairly, but 92 seems right for now, excited about the future for this

2 & 1/2 hour decant

On the nose charred embers,fresh plums, wet river rock, purple fruit and flower notes

On the palate muted and hollow with a slight brandy component, frankly a complete mismatch with a nose. WTF ?

The oak has completely integrated but still a few chewy tannins holding this back

92 on the nose 86 on the palate

With more time it shutdown more. Not sure if the lunar calendar got me, I decanted too long or this was just an off bottle. Disappointing would be an understatement. Try again in 2025

In light of the 2018 release decided to pop a 2016. Three hour decant and this was ready to go. Somewhat translucent, medium bodied but the palate packed a bigger punch than the body would indicate. Oak is managed well, a few drying tannins on a medium finish, plenty of acid for this to age well.

On the nose, floral perfume, smoked meats, green bay leaf, coffee, exotic spice. Hints of red fruit and an overall earthy profile on the nose as well. The nose reminded me of Kobalt cabs from years gone by.

On the palate, more spice, black fruits, black raspberry, dried cherries, seemingly restrained yet refreshing on the finish. Enough fruit for Napa lovers, not enough restraint for true Bordeaux lovers. Drank best at cellar temperature as it warmed the palate became muted and notes of purple fruits and violets appeared.

At three hours consistent notes ... drinking nicely

95 points with room to run up to 97 — can’t wait to try this again with 10 years under its belt

I thought the last bottle might be ‘off’ but alas it appears the lot I got at auction may have not been stored properly. I can’t imagine Phelps making a wine that goes off a cliff at 12 yrs. Instead of a 13 yr old Napa gem, this drank like a tired, 25 year old Bordeaux from a warm year. I wouldn’t call it corked but it certainly wasn’t bad nor was it good. Drinkable but completely boring. A few tertiary type notes and zero fruit. In two words, extremely disappointing.

I was expecting something great out of this wine based on the prior CT notes and my own experience, what I got, however, was truly exceptional!

Decanted 4 hrs but was worried it might too much—worry wrongly placed! Dark brown red in color, minimal bricking, though more viscous yet medium bodied than I remember. Oak and tannins fully integrated, acid at perfect levels for ideal drinking. Drank best at 60-65F

Nose of charcoal, touch of eucalyptus, lead pencil, ink, dried herbs, sage, hint of dried cherries, at 5 hrs after open, complimentary cola notes appeared.

On the palate, not a hard edge to be found anywhere. Everything was seamless across all facets. Blue fruit, red fruit, touch on unsweetened chocolate, dried blueberries, sweet red cherry, slight mineral/herbal streak. Medium-long finish with a hint of cherry liquer but not distractingly hot or alcoholic.

This threw off a lot of sediment. Still at or near the peak of its drinking window.

I hate being a points wh*re, but this was a perfect wine for my palate! As I write this, I am trying to think of a reason to find a flaw and a score of 99–there simply isn’t one. 100 pts, and there was never a doubt—not a flaw to be found. Such a great experience! Sadly my last bottle!

Decanted 2.5 hrs, dark and concentrated, I might have guessed 2013 based on the color alone.

On the nose, coffee, mocha, red raspberry, fresh crushed blackberries, a hint of bramble I always find in the Seavey wines, with more time a floral perfume pops up during swirling. A smooth but short and hollow finish with only a hint of unsweetened blackberry jam and a touch of eucalyptus. 95 on the nose, 91 at best on the palate.

When I tried this before, it was a tannic beast, but now the tannins have receded. The oak is still apparent in the heavy coffee notes. Plenty of acid indicating this can age many more years, though the acid and oak are still overpowering the fruit. This commands a hefty price tag, and while clearly a well made wine, it’s simply not for me. I managed to pick this up at auction at a significant discount, so not a complete loss. I really wanted to like this more, but alas ‘twas not to be. 93 for now, room for 96 (maybe) in 5 years if the fruit can show through.

Decanted three hours and it needed every bit of it.

Simply amazing — on the nose, exotic spices, incense, dried blueberries, blood orange, ‘that BDX red cherry’ note that I can’t define. Translucent crimson medium bodied. Somewhat of a short to medium finish but not distracting in anyway.

Not a hard edge to be found anywhere, no apparent oak, tannins are fully integrated, I think this is ready to drink in the early part of the drinking window, plenty of acid though age for many years.

Drink better at cellar temperature, palate became somewhat muted when it got too warm.

My favorite of the Hundred Acre portfolio— this has been my best bottle thus far — 98 points— though 99 and maybe 100 in 5 years or so.

2 hr decant. Poured black opaque and viscous but not thick, glycerin-like and inky.

Nose was Tench all the way, tar, burnt embers, black fruit, white flowers, touch of mocha, lovely mineral/iron ore component.

Palate showed faint tannins on the medium finish no obvious signs of over oakiness ( I love how RB manages oak). Black and blue fruited (I expected red but alas, none), exotic spices, more white flowers. A touch, just a touch, of acidic heat and purple fruit on the back end.

Big, bold and unapologetically delicious. In no way shape or form is the fruit overcooked or the wine overdone! 94 for now, needs to integrate more, hold for minimum of 3 yrs. Try again after 2024. I think JD 98+ is a bit high, 96-97 potential in my mind. I hope JD is right, however!

First time with Barrett & Barrett. Decanted 90 min. Dark as nite, only slight bricking on the edges.

Fairly simple nose, blackberry and black cherry, which matched the palate, but the palate added black olive and dried bing cherries. Glided over the palate, fine by drying tannins. Plenty of tannin and acid to go a while in a cellar. Seemingly young?

At 3 hrs, the wine opened showing a beautiful perfume bouquet, but the tannins became more prevalent and locked down the fruit and the finish a bit. Good fruit and good winemaking on display here.

For whatever reason, this drank better at slightly above cellar temp. 95 for 2.5 hrs, 94 thereafter.

This was delicious but with little room in the cellar it is not a buy for me.

On open, the cork pulled easily with little or no seepage into the cork. In fact, the color seepage on the cork looked more like a 2017 than a 2014. Not very giving on the nose either. In the decanter it went. Garnet in color, no light edges somewhat translucent.

Meant to decant 90 min, but life got in the way, and 2.5 hrs it was. Transformation successfully completed. Oak and tannins integrated. While still young, this was delicious. Black fruit, fresh crushed blackberries, black plums, black licorice, hint of dried blueberries. A hint of butter cream. A nice mineral/herbal compliment with upturned soil, dried sage. There is a whole bunch of other stuff going here that I can’t pinpoint. Fruit is acidic up front, a bit muted on the mid palate before a fluid flowing finish that shows a hint of orange citrus oil. The finish went on a good 45-60 sec. 94 for now, room for 96 in a few more years. ‘Restrained’ Napa at it finest, would interested to pair this with food, I think it could shine more.

As to the future, for me next bottle in 2024, I think these are going to be best for my palate at 10-15 yrs with potential for longer aging.

Decent but not great. Some bricking already evident. PnP and drank over 90 min. Some black cherry and bay leaf but that was about it. Disappointing to say the least. I hope this is a dumb phase.

Not nearly as good as my last bottle but near as much air either. Hmmmm?

PnP and drank over 90 min with dinner @ Lucio’s. Started off a bit cool due my cooling the bottle due to the HTX heat and a drive into town, but exploded in the glass when it hit the right temp.

Oh dear! What an experience! Open and ready. No oak, no tannins, fruit forward but showing nice secondary notes. Seamless over the palate with a 25-30 second finish. Balanced in every way. Didn’t pay much particular attention to specific notes but wow!

We were halfway through the bottle before I realized just how good this was. This could have easily hit the rare ‘100’ had I paid better attention. A conservative 98 and on the lookout for more!

Can be drunk alone but pairs well with food also.

PnP and ready from the get go. I really tried to find flaws in this but alas I kept coming back to refined, integrated, sophisticated, elegant. She was a beauty tonite. Cedar, lead pencil, pencil shavings, woody, blueberries, hint of red berries, saline. No oak and no tannins. In the zone and no sense holding these unless you don’t like fruit notes. 97 and that might be conservative.

2021 Napa - June 9-12: PnP this red fruited beauty has developed nicely since my last bottle. Bright red cherry, red licorice, still enough tannin and acid to carry this on a long finish, but still has years left, but no reason to wait. Open and into the window.

2021 Napa - June 9-12: The EE has two of my favorite things, Tench fruit and Cabernet Franc. The palate did not disappoint, red fruit, touch of iron, some slight herbal notes and a lovely perfume CF nose. 94 pts and room to improve with time in the cellar. If this note sounds like the 2018 note, it is, the wines are so consistent year on year, this was simply 1 year younger!

2021 Napa - June 9-12: PnP, redneck decant and delicious-just simply delicious. Just bottled weeks ago, but not yet shut down. Purple fruit, white flowers, touch of bittersweet chocolate and Black Forest cake. Dr. Crane profile with the Russell touch. No step down from 2018 and may actually be better, only time will tell. 96 as it is, room to potentially run to perfection in 5+ years.

On PnP, this was crazy good, blueberry forefront on the palate with blackberries joining the dance with a wet rock mineral streak carrying a long finish on a nice tannic backbone.

Similar notes to the 2014, red fruit, bay leaf, herbal tones, but this seems to flow effortlessly across the palate. This was really good, Mrs Geaux’s favorite. I will take one for a spin soon. Room to run into high 90s in 7+ years.

2021 Napa - June 9-12: Recently bottled, there is no shutdown in the W&M wines just yet. The nose and palate jumped out of the glass. This seemingly can be drunk now with air until (if) it shuts down in bottle. From the first, this one made me pause the conversation and admire the handiwork! I told Will I think this may be his best yet!

2021 Napa - June 9-12: Bottled recently, this had the most expressive nose of the three W&M wines and can be drunk now with air until (if) it shuts down in bottle. The parts are not fully integrated yet, but this has a lot of potential.

2021 Napa - June 9-12: Bottled recently, this was the most structured of the W&M wines and really needs to lay down the longest. Excited to see where this one goes in 5, 7 or 9 years. If you buy a bunch, test drive with a lot of air, otherwise I implore you to be patient and let this nap for years. A lot of folks did not heed the helpful advice from many and opened the 2018s way too early. Patience will reward those willing to lie these sideways.

Red berry fruit and spice components on a nice tannic backbone. This can be drunk now with air, I noted 95 for now, but I thinks runs up to high 90s with 5-7 years on its side.

Seemingly more together early on with less early toasty oak notes than the Bevan version, this has a lot of potential once the components fully integrate. I’m a buyer. Can’t wait to pair Bevan and Lerner on a side by side in 7 years—there will be no losers!

2021 Napa - June 9-12: Somewhat muted nose which caused my confusion with the RMS, this is Tench and more Tench. The palate was somewhat closed down, but I think this excels with time in cellar. Unfortunately, on tasting day this was outshone by it peers—very stiff competition.

Obviously young and tannic, but another epic wine from the Alex and Graeme. 97 for now, this will rival the 2013 at some point. Hope I can hold onto mine long enough to do a comparison in 10+ years.

2021 Napa - June 9-12: This was the biggest of the Kinsman wines. Fruit peeking through the tannic structure but plenty of acid to age gracefully. More open and less tannic than I remember the 2016 at a similar stage. Shae suggested drinking ‘17 before ‘16 or ‘18. I agree and will let these babies rest for 7 years if not more. I think AG hit this spot on…in 7-9 years, and for a long drinking window. Patience is your friend for optimal results and buy, buy, buy, if you can find it!

2021 Napa - June 9-12: Sophisticated, more red fruit and more fruit forward than Bella Oaks, glided elegantly over the palate. Tannins are holding this back and this is nowhere near ready for optimal early consumption, but oh boy am I glad I jumped on this. A fabulous effort here! Too bad this is a 2018/2019 two-trick pony for the time being with Geeslin being replanted. Keeping my hands off this one is going to be a big problem!

2021 Napa - June 9-12: What an opener, I’m buying this. There are wines you can smell and taste early in their development and just know you are going to have trouble waiting on them to develop into beauty queens. This is one of those. Darker fruit profile, structured and chalky tannins, not a very helpful description, but just know this was delicious. Put these away for 5-7 years (longer for me) and then decant.

Unapologetic and big, but not seemingly over baked and overcooked. Bold but balanced. Reminded me more of a Calistoga cab from a hot year. No hot fruit pie here!

Last of a 3 bottle purchase from the tasting room during our first stay in Yountville.

Opened and into the decanter, showing expected signs of aging, nice bricking one the edges, translucent at the core.

At 60 min, I would have called this a teenage BDX, restrained silky, balanced. Sage, fresh herbs, tea, leather, cigar box on the nose, primarily sour red cherries on the palate but refreshing nonetheless with a good acidic backbone carrying on to a medium finish, with a slight citrusy end note. 93 pts

At 2 hrs, this gets green leafy and herbal on the nose, touch of cinnamon and dirt. The wine glides over the palate, but the fruit note is gone. 88 pts. Mrs. Geaux makes a blah face and tells me to quit being charitable...so there’s another data point.

Lesson learned, in hindsight I would have PnP’d. I don’t think this improves with further aging, so drink em now or in the next few years.

Into the depths of the Unknown (a/k/a Mostly wines we have yet to taste); 5/27/2021-5/29/2021: PnP, last wine of the night and WOTN which I think is the first time the last bottle finished first for us. We were surprised how this immediately made the Kobalt seem less robust even though it was delicious.

Black and red fruited, silky on the palate with a lovely textured and long finish. Oak and tannins fully integrated. Blackberry, black raspberry, hint of red cherry, black cherry. Seems some bottle variation on these Kamens but tonite that worked in our favor.

Dark and viscous, oak and tannins fully integrated. This was such a beauty. Blackberry jam, blackberry liquer, Asian spice. I have one bottle left from my original case purchase—let’s hope I can keep my hands off it until 2022.
