Well, why not? [berserker.gif]

It's my Step-daughter's birthday today and we had her over for dinner so I popped a special wine. Yeah we were having tacos but I don't care. Damn this was good.
  • 2012 Carter Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Coliseum Block - USA, California, Napa Valley (3/30/2015)
    Dinner over, guests gone, dishes washed, sitting with the final glass of this wine after 4-1/2 hrs open. This sure was a hedonistic plunge on a monday night. Dark as night, deep pure dark ripe blackberry with tobacco and saddle leather. Intense, concentrated and layered dark fruit flavors, chocolate and a hint of vanilla. The acidity pierces through all the fruit before the tannins kick in and balances out the entire package. Just a baby but it's not my first infanticide/rodeo/corkpuller moment. Painfully delicious.

I just checked Cellartracker and saw the last time I drank a Quivet was January 1, 2015.
The last time I popped a Myriad was last year. [shock.gif]

Thanks for the gentle reminder. [whistle.gif]

Had the 2012 Quivet Sauvignon Blanc last Thursday, might be the best bottle I've had yet of any vintage, was singing.

This thread has me considering a '12 Quivet Las Madres for dinner tonight. Anyone pop one recently? It seems the delayed (by train-wreck) Quivet/Myriad shipment is due to reach my porch today - good times!

Just popped the cork on a 2012 Ancillary Sangiacomo. This will be my first. Up until now, I've only opened the Sun Chase vineyard.

At this point I would opt to hold my 2012s and open up an earlier vintage instead. That said, I'd give it at least an hour in a decanter if opening now, 2-3 preferably.

I had a 2010 Quivet Kenefick Ranch Cabernet on Sunday. This was the best cab that I've had in a long time. A remarkable wine and I wish that was not my only bottle.

Well,

Its not exactly tonight, rather over the weekend. Guys golf trip to Streamsong, $25 corkage at a resort, can't beat it. Two Mike Smith wines made the journey.

2012 Myriad Napa Cab, was just amazing. Great fruit profile, integrated tannins, just in a really good spot. It was the fourth bottle of the night so that could have slightly jaded my judgment.

2012 Patine Gaps Crown Pinot. This was the first bottle of the night and absolutely rocked. Great fruit profile, balance as can be. A hint of acid that made you want to continually come back for another sip. Finnish that really lingered for a pinot. Probably the best Mike Pinot I have had to date. Check that, the 2013 Patine Sangiacomo vineyard I had with Jimmy Fox was just killer, but this was in the same league. Only mistake was opening this bottle right before dinner when there were 6 guys around. Should have been done earlier during the gin game of 4.

Cheers,

Mark

2011 Myriad Three Twins Cab. Opened 3 hrs ahead, drank over 2 hrs. Very casual social environment, so it didn't get a tremendous amount of focus or appreciation. I can say it was a solid balanced cab without fault but didn't make a strong impression as particularly notable or distinguished. Still have 2011 GIII and Crane so will seek to open these when I can give them a little more attention.

2012 12C Cabernet Sauvignon GIII

Wow. This a great Napa Cab, the best yet I've had from the 2012 vintage that was made by Mike. Had a great 2009 Paloma Merlot next to it but the 12C still killed in most every respect.

  • 2013 Myriad Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Three Twins Vineyard - USA, California, Napa Valley (3/25/2016)
    I kind of screwed up on this bottle -- again proving why I generally don't try to predict my evenings on weeknights. Popped this guy in the morning before I headed to the office with the anticipation of enjoying it while watching my Sooners in the Elite Eight. Of course, plans changed, so the bottle stood open for about 12 hours before I could get a cork back in it.

    Fast forward another 20 hours, and cork removed. Drank about an hour later. Even after all that air, this is pretty tightly coiled. Dark blue fruit. Gravel. Medium + weight, Medium ++ finish. Think these are going to require some patience - especially when compared to the GIII, which I think is drinking really well. But upside is there once this comes together. (93 pts.)

  • 2012 Carter Cellars Hossfeld Coliseum - USA, California, Napa Valley (3/26/2016)
    6 hour slow ox. Drank over 3 hours. Enjoyed on the patio while watching my Sooners earn a berth in the Final Four. Very consistent with prior notes - could drink this wine all day. Red profile, but some purple too. Dark purple in glass. Lavender. Smooth tannins. Medium + weight and finish. Finish was just a tick astringent.

    Also had a 2012 cab from Coliseum Block open -- and it was better, both before and after. Just a darker fruit profile, more depth and a much better finish. The blend was lovely during the game, but the straight cab was the ticket with dinner. (93 pts.)
  • 2012 Carter Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Coliseum Block - USA, California, Napa Valley (3/26/2016)
    Slow ox for 6 hours. Gave it a taste (and it was fabulous), but waited another 3 hours to really dive in with dinner. So really 9 hours of total air.

    This is the real deal. Great note by CSIMM re: this often getting overlooked given the To Kalon lineup by Carter. This wine deserves full attention. Dark purple and black fruits. Dark purple in glass. Full bodied weight, but not too heavy. Good mineral tones and some granite. A fantastic big finish. Well integrated tannins already. Went great with wagyu steaks. Disappeared quickly. Can see probably a point higher with some further integration -- so maybe not the unlimited upside of the To Kalons. But damn fine juice. (95 pts.)
  • 2014 Ancillary Cellars Pinot Noir Sun Chase Vineyard - USA, California, Sonoma County, Sonoma Coast (3/26/2016)
    Similar to prior experiences. Pop and pour. This stuff just goes down too easy - very well made and enjoyable. And would still agree that the 2014s are a tick better than 2013. There is a certain freshness and vibrancy in the 2014s that is lovely. (93 pts.)

Darker cherry and more spice than the Rochioli RRV that preceded it. Really tasty.

2013 Myriad Three Twins:

PnP with very tight and clipped at first, but bursting at the seams with a medley of dark, ripe fruit flavors. A total of 3 hours in the decanter and this thing was ready to go all the way around. Notes of black currant, ripe and rich black and red raspberry, purple plum, dark blueberry, black licorice, asphalt, creosote, anise, wet slate, and some welcomed dust on the finish. A hint of chocolate, but I mostly experienced it as an asphalt/tar note on the back end. However, the fruit was so pronounced, the mineral/slate note was a bit fleeting. A really fascinating wine at this stage with a lot going on. Even a slight touch of vanillin oak deep on the back end.

The 2013 Three Twins really ratchets up the flavor intensity the likes of which I have never seen from the Twins offering from Myriad. That damn bottle was empty before I knew it! My other half called it blueberry liqueur coated in sweet dust. It reminded me of a wine I wanted to have with Porcini-Dusted Beignets from Rich Table in SF (sorry, random reference). Nevertheless, this was 100% my kind of wine!

If drinking now, decant for 2-3 hours; otherwise, hold until after 2017. 95+ points all day long. I'll try to be patient, but this is going to disappear fast just like my other Myriads. I liked this even better than the standard Myriad Cabernet I just had recently. Highly recommended if you can get it!

2012 Carter Coliseum Block Cabernet:

PnP with notes of smooth black raspberry, red/black currant, wild berry (almost a brambly, mountain fruit quality), red licorice, and a nice dusty/chalky component that added good cut on the back end.

Into the decanter it went for approximately two+ hours. Unbelievably smooth, with a quality of fruit that matches many of the other high end 2012 Napa Cabernets. Acidity and tannins were 100% in check, with this wine (though a youngster) displaying a total accessibility; drinking absolutely phenomenal almost right out of the gate. I could not stop drinking this wine. Wonderful red and black berry contrasts, finishing with some dark chocolate and graphite on the final sips. It comes across like a classical Napa Cabernet meets a new world cult Cabernet: big, thick, and juicy, but with a red currant/berry streak that cuts like a 90's Stags' Leap.

I usually considered the Coliseum as somewhat of a secondary wine to the BTK offerings. But in this case, it was close to epic. 96++ points right now, with possibly a point or two of upside in the next year or so.

Myriad Esther Block Syrah 2013. Structured, solid fruit but not syrupy. Medium finish. I like the olive notes from Syrah and I did not get any of that. I prefer the Quivet Hulda Block from the same vintage.

Decanted for 60-90 minutes and drank over a 2 hour period. Big black fruit, pepper and a touch of spice. Excellent in the mid-palate which hits all the right notes. Long tasty finish. Surprisingly smooth on the tannins for such a young wine.

No - that would be Thomas Rivers Brown.

Quivet sauvignon blanc last night with gruyere and emmentaler (with Quivet sauvignon blanc in the cheese sauce) mac and cheese, with a salad of mixed greens with bleu cheese dressing with Quivet sauvignon blanc as an ingredient in the dressing.

It was a triple Quivet experience.
