Community Tasting Notes 1

    May 13, 2020 - Putzi's Napa 2017 new arrival tasting: A new Napa arrival tasting hosted by a wine merchant. A total of 30 wines mostly from 2017 (with a few 2018 whites and new releases from 2016 and 2015 in the mix) were presented in various price brackets ($40 to $200+). For 2017 my takeaways were 1) 2017 is already approachable and offers immediate drinking pleasure. But 2) the wines also came across lighter and less layered. 2017 doesn’t seem to have the refinement of 2016, the depth of 2014 or the muscular concentration of 2015. For many, it seems, finding a spot in the sun will be hard with 5 outstanding vintages before and likely 2 more (at least) right behind. There were notable exceptions of course. Wine of the night was Diamond Creek Volcanic Hill 2017 (95) and just whisker behind Viader 2017 (95). A very notable mention deserves the Detert East Block Cabernet Franc 2017 for its unique character (94).

    Tasting note:
    An icing of sweet spices covers an intense, ripe fruit base - but all in a cool coat. Green herbal notes and somewhat alcoholic on the palate unfortunately with mouth-coating tannin. This will probably need quite a few years for all the pieces to fall into place, but I do see potential then. Adding black coffee and more herbal complexity over time. Quite phenomenal nose actually and the palate is improving very fast in the glass! One of the top presentations at this event and comes very close to Diamond Creek Volcanic Hill, even in a completely different style.
