    December 31, 2018 - Decanted & paired with NY Strip. Dark cherry in color, earth/oak on the nose; red fruit, very smooth tannin. Highly recommend if you like Napa/Oakville Cab.

    October 6, 2018 - Pnp; drank over 5 hours. A bit closed yet still smooth in 1st 30 min. Then opened to subtle fruit, easy tannins & smooth finish over the next 3.5 hours. Last hour was flatter & prune taste.

    May 25, 2018 - Delicious. In a perfect drinking window. Huge fruit, silly tannins, nice balance. Really hits all of the notes I want from a Napa cab. I bet continues to drink well for a few more years but I don’t think it’s going to get any better than this.

    March 26, 2017 - Based on my tasting note from last April, we decanted and let this bottle breathe for 2 hours before beginning to drink. Definitely the right call, this wine was wow! from the start. Deep and rich flavors, good fruit but savory notes also, smooth texture, maybe a touch heavy. An exciting wine. One of my best experiences with a Ramey cab. Most of the others were younger wines or were consumed without being aired out.

    (RAMEY Cabernet PEDREGAL) Plethora Dear Friends, While not technically a plethora, I did enjoy the sound of the word so that is the title of our Friday send-off list. All below have perfect provenance and are at the lowest prices I can muster - some of the prices are pretty eye-popping. Have a good weekend everyone! - Jon Rimmerman ************************ Friday Focus Wine: 2005 Can Blau "Mas de Can Blau" (Spain) STRICT LIMIT 6/person Last year's 2004 Mas de Can Blau was a major hit (with Josh Raynolds as well) and the 2005 is even better. This is an extracted, large-scaled wine that is actually good. While I don't typically support wine like this, I think many of you will really enjoy it: ************************** 2006 Domaine de Chenevieres Chablis "Les Grandes Vignes" (Vielles Vignes) EXTREMELY LIMITED 2005 La Chablisienne Chablis "Le Preuses" (BH93) STRICT LIMIT 2/person This is in bottles - please be patient here. 1999 Friggiali Brunello Riserva 3.0lt (GR3) 350.00/1 (very rare bottle of hand-bottled Riserva from the best lot they had in the vintage) 2000 Fontodi Syrah Case Via 1.5lt STRICT LIMIT 2/person 2005 Ramey Cabernet Sauvignon "Pedregal Vineyard" 1.5lt (these are in perfect condition and have never sat on a store shelf - ever) 2006 Pierre Usseglio CdP "Deux Freres" Thank you, Jon Rimmerman Garagiste Seattle, WA Spain6320 Burg8860 Burg8870 Italy6831 Italy6832 CA8380 Rhone7410
