    July 15, 2020 - Napa Tasting (Bistro Cocotte, Haberfield): Move obviously Napa for me, ripe but perfumed black fruits, plums, sweet spices, cedar, a little toasted note and a touch of bacon fat. And so it proves on the palate; jammy, slightly plummy fruit, an odd ripe menthol top note, soft, near resolved tannins, alcohol warmth is a little more intrusive here. With time though the fruit settles revealing blackcurrant and a touch more cedar on the nose...the the palate is still much of an alcoholic muchness. Hmm.

    January 31, 2020 - Souper Bordeaux/Napa Valley (Chez François G.): Un nez chocolaté (à la menthe style After eight), un peu de menthol, de mine de crayon. Un vin très puissant mais avec bon sens des proportions, qui n'exclue pas une finesse certaine dans la longue finale. Un vin profond, savoureux, un peu salin, magnifique! Un grand vin californien. 94-95 pts

    P.s.: je ne comprends rien aux critiques de Parker sur ce vin!

    December 16, 2019 - 1994 California Cabernet Blind Tasting (Michelangelo Hotel, New York): Fungi medicinal nose. Some red fruit and bell pepper. Overly tannic and a very bitter finish. Likely bottle variation. Score withheld.

    October 20, 2017 - 2017 New York Wine Experience Trip; 10/16/2017-10/25/2017 (New York City, NY): Sampled from magnum, this deep garnet wine (98.4% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1.4% Merlot and 0.2% Petit Verdot) flaunts gorgeous aromas of red cherries, plums, leather, hazelnuts, cocoa and cigar box. Full-bodied, medium in acidity, seamlessly alcoholic and with silky residual tannins, it has impressive mid-palate density and finishes very long. This 23-year-old wine is a good example of what Napa Cabernet is capable of when properly crafted and properly cellared. This should show well for many more years. Drink now-2030.

    March 24, 2015 - A Weeknight at JulieD's (San Diego): Allowed to breathe in bottle for 1 hour, then in glass 30 minutes before tasting. Clear dark garnet - blood red, becoming darker after an hour. Brooding, elegant bouquet of creme de cassis, forest floor, blackberry liqueur. Racer117 noted "cinnamon stick." If tasted blind, I might have guessed tight young Bordeaux. Not sure if the fruit will outlast the tannins in this wine. My #3 tonight.
