BV - Georges de Latour Private Reserve
This was a beautiful wine. Dark, elegant, rich bordeaux style. Notes of pencil shavings, earth, and graphite. Medium/long finish but I think it's got a long more time before it's at peak. Glorious wine!
Wrath - Pinot Noir McIntyre Vineyard
With a good friend celebrating the end of a long week. This dark, brooding wine while big was also elegant. Notes of cocoa, dark red cherries, graphite. Medium/long finish. Needed about an hour to open up before it started humming
Ladera - Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain (Stile Blocks)
A very solid bottle of Howell Mountain wine from Ladera. This is probably peaking at the moment. Nose was muted for many hours and the bouquet never really came out. Notes of dust and chalk at first taste but slowly opened up to a mild, romantic darker fruit flavors. Hints of chocolate and tones of light earth. A nice wine
