Reply to "What are you drinking September 2020"

Went to visit some family in Napa, swung by the downtown tasting room for Mayacamas on Friday.  Great little tasting:

2018 Chard was really nice.  Refreshing and tons of mineral character.

2016 Merlot was pretty good, though not sure it was worth the price of admission

2003/2005/2014 Cabernet.  Really fun to taste these three side-by-side.  The 14 was great, but so young.  The 03 ended up being my favorite, and surprisingly had a little bit more fruit character than the 05, which had a bit more of the tobacco/leather thing going on.  

I have been pleasantly surprised by some 2003's lately.  Had a 03 Beringer Private Reserve last night, and I thought it was delicious.  For what I thought was supposed to be a down vintage, these two bottles were out of the park.
