    April 30, 2021 - 3 days in Napa: Arkenstone, Memento Mori, Maxem, The French Laundry, Christopher Tynan, Kinsman, Harlan, Vice Versa, Accendo, Fairchild, Macdonald, and a truckload of others (Napa): A barrel sample, showing some heavy reduction on the nose, but quickly giving way to gobs of powerful fruit. A massive mouthful. Dark berries and oak char dominate at the moment, with the sense that authority and flex will be a hallmark of this vintage for Memento Mori. This is a biggin’.

    As with all of Sam Kaplan’s creations, brawn is controlled by a measured skill that keeps the profile in perfect check. Though this barrel sample was fairly boozy at first pass, exposure to air in the glass suggests that the components of this wine will ultimately work themselves out into an awesome expression of what the Memento Mori blend has become. There is great energy here. Using my Magic 8 Ball, I would expect buyers to think of 2019 similarly to 2016, except that the 2019 may find a pathway to even more heightened brightness and freshness. Time will tell, but this 2019 is a decent sized monster in its current state. I’m very much looking forward to seeing how this develops once in bottle. 95-96+ points.

    April 22, 2021 - Barrel sample. Very powerfully built wine, leading with a large helping of black and blue fruit complemented by a bit of rustic and grainy minerality. The vintage seems to really show off wonderfully concentrated and opulent levels of fruit, and this falls right in line with that description. Not quite as purely amazing as the LPV or Crane with the fruity quality, but makes up for it with the potential for more complexity and overall character. Another great wine with exceptional potential. 95-97+
