2017 Luna Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $75) (Previously $75)

93 points Vinous: "The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Black Label is a big, powerful wine.

Sweet fruit on the center palate." (02/2021) K&L Notes: 50 by 50 is the long-time passion project of Gerald Casale, known to fans of the "new wave" music genre as the bassist for Devo. Far from being a whimsical endeavor by a musician with spare time (and money) on his hands, 50 by 50 is Casale's outlet for a serious wine bug that reached its full explosion in 1990 with ...

The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe tannin: dark cherries, black plum, a pinch of white pepper and a slight flintiness toward the finish.

The palate is a little chewy on the entry, finely detailed, structured and masculine, although I discern a little more persistence and finesse on the other two Santenays. Still, there is plenty of matière within this wine, and it certainly deserves a couple of ...

How about this sleeper wine from a tiny family owned producer in Oakville. On one side of this property you'll find Dalla Valle...on the other side, Rudd!
