Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars-Cask 23-Estate-Cabernet Sauvignon-Napa Valley-California-2000-$110.00-The Super Bowl calls for pulling out a prize from the cellar, decanted for 1+ hour, nose was a elegant currant and spice, beautiful dark amber in color.  Smooth, great flavors of currants, some earth, spice, great mouth feel, 30-45 second finish.  It’s always a bit scary when you open an older wine and hope and it’s aged well, this one did not disappoint in any way.  I was sad when I took the last sip, what a great bottle of wine.           WS-91         CR-94          Great with prime rib, onion soup, chicken.

Altamura Vineyards & Winery-Cabernet Sauvignon-Napa Valley-California-2002-$65.00-A nose of dark fruit, a classic Cab aroma, dark amber in color.   A smooth, delicious full bodied Cab, black currants, berries, chocolate, great mouth feel and long long finish.   Decant for two hours, year after year Altamura puts out quality classic wine.                       RP-92                  WS-89                 CR-93                   Good with steak, chicken, pasta.

Whitehall Lane Winery-Reserve-Cabernet Sauvignon-Napa Valley-California-2003-$75.00-A classic Cab nose of dark currants, dark amber in color.  A medium to full bodied Cab, currants, cherry,  blackberry, was very smooth, very enjoyable, time did the wine well.  My only complaint was that I did not read the bottle which stated that they made a special glass stopper (see picture) instead of a cork….busted my corkscrew…who would of guessed?                WS-86            WE-89            CR-90               Good with steak, chicken, ribs.
