I passed up a fancy Chatto vs Rousseau lunch because I’d committed to this tasting, and gentlemen prefer Cabernet, anyway. CM went to the Chambertin fest as he’s known for his love of expensive wines, meanwhile, the man of the people, GW, rolls up his sleeves (well, I wore a T-shirt, so metaphorically, at least). A trio of wonderful vintages for the Napa in 2012, 2013, and 2014.  This was tasted in a vertical including 2005, 2007, 2010, 2013, 2014, and 2015. This was my preferred wine of the six, with a great fondness for the 2005. Importer: Airoldi Wines Incredible perfume here, all violets and the like, along with coffee, tobacco, blackcurrant, spice and all those rich, seductive Cabernet things. It’s full-bodied, but tense and savoury, earth and gravel, wide-grained but supple tannin, deep and throaty, a controlled roar of a power, pencils, and a superb sweet/tannic/earthy finish. It’s a wine of immaculate poise and structure. Regal. Incredible. Read more
