#1 Post by T.Phillips » May 11th, 2019, 7:48 am

Anyone have any info on this years release? Looks like the 2011 and 2012 release was around this time last year.

Thanks

Funny -- I just sent them an email asking the same question. Haven't heard back yet.

Not recently, as I only have 1 left from last years release. But we loved it and everyone that tried it with us loved it. A killer, fresh take on an old school napa cab style is kinda how we thought of it. Cant wait to get more

When I visited Ketan last June he said he was thinking the 2013s would be released last fall. Well, here we are...

Opened both, preferred the 11. Good solid mountain cabs, well worth the $75

If you go to CT you'll see there are entries (though no bottles showing yet) for 2013, 2014 and...2016. [dontknow.gif]

Had a bottle of the 12 last night with dinner. Last year i preferred the 11 slightly when trying a bottle of each. Thought last nights was best of the bunch. As noted above these are not big wines by today's Napa standards but i very much enjoyed. And very good with the meal.

Anyone have an update on this - planning out the rest of the year's purchases ...
My avatar is a twelfth century Berserker Lewis rook, from the British Museum. "He stands armed with a sword and exposes his huge teeth with which he bites into his shield. It is this gesture that identifies him as a Berserker – a fierce warrior drawn from Norse mythology that bites his shield in a self-induced frenzy prior to battle."

Just want to confirm that only 2011 and 2012 have been released, and that I have not missed an allocation.
