This is a very good daily drinking Napa cab. Has the chewy tannins Napa is famous for, and is smooth, layered and a nice long finish. For the price, tough to beat. Buy more if you can find it

Wooff... this is an amazing Pinot. Full bodied, complex yet well balanced. Absolutely delicious. Long finish and so nice to enjoy. Drank so well we had a hard time having it last until the food was ready. Glad we have more left

TC from Santee describes this correctly. Muted nose, nice flavor profile, but not as good as typical Phelps Cabs. Good, not great. Maybe more time in bottle will help.

Continues to be a wonderful Pinot. Expressive nose, fuller bodied (in the SLH style), long finish. Plenty of life left... in a great spot right now. Sad it was my last bottle.

Delicious!! Full bodied SLH pinot. Very typical of AP Vin style. Quite fruit forward (on the verge of jammy) with a nice long finish. Bright red fruit, cherries, warm spices. So glad I have more ...

This is a nice summer white. Crisp, light, hints of melon and peach mixed with nice mineral notes. Haven’t had with food yet but tastes like it would pair well with fish or lighter dishes. Very enjoyable

First time drinking this Pinot. Color is light, nose is muted. It’s pleasant and quite drinkable, but not sophisticated. 13.8% alcohol, so slightly hot finish. It’s decent for a daily drinker. By Day 2 it had faded a bit. This wine isn’t going to make my short list and no reason to buy more

Decent nose, but a bit harsh & astringent on opening. Overly tannic. Likely needs some more time to calm down. Drinkable but not worthy of a go to wine yet.

Delicious, inky black wine. Nice nose, dark fruit, long finish. A bit tight on opening... more approachable after about 30-45 minutes. Completely enjoyable now, and should have a long life. Glad I have more.

Absolutely delicious ! Brought to RPM Steak (Chicago) and decanted about 45 minutes before enjoying. Wonderful, complex nose. Delicious with plenty of structure, smooth tannins and a super long finish. Paired perfectly with dry aged NY Strip. This wine has plenty of life left, but no reason to wait !

Absolutely delicious wine. Drinking beautifully, with complex flavors of cola, red & dark fruit and warm spices. Super long finish. Best example of Gary’s vineyard I have had. Description provided by La Cave de Argent in Dec 2018 is still accurate. So glad I have a few more bottles left

Drank with Christmas Beef Roast. Decanted about an hour. Nose on initial opening had a bit of earth tones, and it really needed some air. First sip was a bit disappointing, as it tasted past it’s prime and a bit off. Not sure if it’s just this bottle (because bottle opened last year was amazing). Got better after a couple hours, however never reached level of greatness we’ve had with older Pride previously. I would say based on this bottle, drink now & no reason to wait longer.

Pop & pour, it was quite tight in first minutes and worried it was too young. 15 minutes later it became a beautiful wine. At 13% alcohol, it is nicely light & bright with red berries as the leading character. More like Willamette Valley or Burgundy in character. Very enjoyable by itself, and paired nicely with pork tenderloin. Would buy again.

This is delicious. Inky black, complex medley of dark berries, long finish. Paired perfectly with late summer dinner of chili paste rubbed pork & sweet corn. Long staying power, glad I have more.

Had at Birch & Butcher in Milwaukee. This is a big, delicious Syrah. Awesome nose, filled with dark berry & tobacco aromas. Big, fruit forward (but not jammy), long finish. Perfect pairing with steak. A winner for sure.
