If you can, please post as much as you are willing about the background of the # wine you are drinking. Most don’t know what the #s are so helpful if you identify it by what it is, even down to “Cam said $90 retail we paid $12” etc. Rodrigo B made a spreadsheet w/ all the info of each wine if you want a reference:
Wine on the way! I received No. 1 in June. Flew from CA to KS with a couple bottles. Even though it was too early to drink them, we really enjoyed them. Looking forward to comparing notes when the rest (11) get here.
I’ve had a couple bottle of #16 Sav Blanc. I am lacking in knowledge to even try to give it a tasting note but me and my wife both enjoyed it and were happy with the purchase. We found it very nice on a warm afternoon
Pobega’d an OG 6 last night, and… it was good. Drank like a $40-50 Napa cab. Very even keel over 3 hours of sipping. Good nose with the cork popping, just a bit of heat on the finish of the first two sips, but that resolved pretty quickly. Then went into cruise control and stayed in a good spot the rest of the night. Wife liked it, which helped me break the news of the other cases coming. Overall a good show for $15 landed. This will probably get me back on the DN train, as I paused after 5 cases to see what I was buying. Not disappointed at all. Nice job Cam
Coravined a glass of N.05 right off the truck. Nose is incredible. Big oak and red fruit. Hot for sure but that blew off in a few minutes. It is a bit disjointed and young at the moment, but there is potential here for a really good wine. All the elements I like are there, it just doesn’t mesh right now. It is so young on the palate, I just keep going back to the nose. Cam’s notes were accurate, minus the “velvety” finish. Just needs time.
It’s not tonight and everyone has liked it but I’ve had 4 or 5 #2’s and I think it’s a phenomenal wine. #3 was also good albeit not as good as #2. Those are the only two I have had delivered thus far. My sister-in-law has had #16 and loves it.
Not tonight, but I have already received OG 1 and OG 16. Also don’t knowledge to give tasting notes, but I enjoyed both of them. For OG 1 I have been decanting it for at least a couple of hours. I do think both are very good values for the prices.
