***** THE PALACE Red Blend, Oakville
A nice, smooth, daily drinker!We enjoyed The Palace Petit Verdot so much we decided to give their Red Blend a try. Plus we like its price point! Everyone has enjoyed it and it has become a 'go to' bottle to grab for those relaxing, wine sipping evenings! Cheers!

*****Yount Ridge Sauvignon Blanc
Excellent! A beautifully-wrought Sauvignon Blanc
*****Mirror Cabernet Sauvignon
Thank you for introducing me to this excellent wine.
As a restaurant owner, I have the opportunity to taste many different wines. Recently, I tried the Mirror 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon and it was very good. A big nose of berries and chocolate, with rich cherry and plum on the palate and a toasty vanilla finish - all which I expect from Napa cabernet. The 2011 vintage was written about by critics as not up to snuff, but in the hands of a great winemaker, that is not true. This is very good wine at a very good price and I thank you for introducing it to me.Dr. G.V. Reddy 11/20/17
*****The Palace Petite Verdot
A wonderful Petit Verdot at a great price point!
I love Petit Verdot as a single varietal and I also know it can be hard to find. This 2011 vintage is a wonderful example of a rich, smooth, and luscious Napa Valley Petit Verdot. Wonderful aromas and a long, delicious taste! This Prescott Ashe Estate Petit Verdot is my 'Go To' daily drinker right now! It keeps giving and never disappoints! Cheers and thanks for providing this great wine!
Best wine of 2017!
The Yount Ridge "Epic" Cabernet Sauvignon 2014, Napa Valley, is epic indeed, a monument to both the dimensions and the nuances the grape can attain in its perfect environment in a great year. Probably the best cabernet wine I tasted in 2017. I won't lie; it's expensive, $240 a bottle. Production was 250 cases. A more detailed review will follow when I write about Big Deal Reds later in December.

*****The Palace Petite Verdot
FABULOUS WINE, GREAT PRICE!
I wish I could wax poetic about wine, but I'm not that knowledgeable. I won't try to fake it. It is a wonderful wine, and I highly recommend it. I also appreciate the wonderful service I received from Laura and Terry. Living on the east coast, it is rare to find wines from cult winemakers. This is such a treat for me. Thank you so much for the terrific service and wines!
A wonderful Merlot!
I admit I am a fan of Merlot. It was the first wine (after the obligatory Boones Farm/Annie Green Springs/Mad Dog 20-20) I was introduced to back in the mid '80s. This Highlands Merlot is a lovey, drinkable wine either with a meal or just for sipping after a long day. Lovely fruity aromas with a smooth feel and a wonderful flavor. This is a lovely Merlot and we laid some in our cellar to see how it ages over the coming couple of years.
Oakville, Napa 91 Points Wine Spectator
From 60 year old, organic, dry-farmed vines in the town of Calpella, along Highway 101, middle of Mendocino County. #1 message to convey to you is that this is flat-out delicious. It has both broad appeal (all will like it) and unique character (not a cookie-cutter red blend). Gets loads of ripe, jammy, spicy berry fruit flavor. Smell and taste red cherry liqueur, nutmeg, cracked black pepper, boysenberries, ripe black fig and cocoa. Rich, balanced, smooth and easy to like, especially with simple fare hot off the grill (sausages, peppers, cheeseburgers, pork...)

The Initial Release from Post & Vine is a Winner
“The wine delivers a lively, resonant flow of blue and red fruit flavors permeated by earthiness, a tinge of briers and brambles and wisps of exotic spices — sandalwood, allspice — all energized by a lithe, supple texture and a structure that features clean lines and good bones. There’s so much life and vibrancy in this wine that I found it irresistible.”
