89/100

line of the day – ‘this gets a little Big Boy on ya, and I’m not talking the guy from Outcast’

I’m more of a fan of the multi-wine episodes so this only gets an 89.

    Kinda enjoying Festival ’34 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon with some smoked turkey, smoked cheddar, and a whole wheat tortilla. I think it’s pretty good. I have to admit, this is the first time I’ve actually enjoyed a Napa Cab.

    Just going through the archives GV and saw this episode. Well done. Will have to look out for Volta.

    QOTD: The last Napa Cab I had was from Peju. I enjoyed it, but at ~30 bones, I can buy 3 bottles of killer Spanish wines for the same price, wines that punch way above their weight. I think that is the major reason why I don’t drink California wines that much. Why would I spend 30-60 bones on a CA wine when I could find a nice value Spanish or French wine at 1/2 or 1/3 the price, and get some old world love rather than the fruit bomb/factory-made/over-oaked stuff coming out of CA? Ugh.

    For an awesome napa cab between $20-40, try Truchard 2003-2005

    Have not had this wine. QOTD-most recent in that range was Andrew Geoffrey-Diamond Mountain which was very good. http://www.winelx.com
