OH AND I SCORED A CASE FOR US HERE AT LA WINE!! - STEVE
The 2013 GeekZ, what we can tell you is this, it’s a monster! It was made
for aging and comes from one of the most respected teams (owner/
winemaker) in Napa who have been making Cult Cabernet’s for many years. I
can’t tell you who they are or the vineyard that the fruit came from, but
it came from the Coombsville appellation/AVA and we made 2 barrels of it.
The 2 barrels we made were NOT declassified juice, we got to taste
through all barrels and select the 2 we wanted.
When the owner tasted his wine, just prior to blending (they are blending
theirs, ours is “pure”), he had originally only wanted to make fewer
barrels (hence the reason we were able to buy 2), he wanted them all and
asked the winemaker to get them back. Having made the commitment, both us
and the winemaker, more than a year prior to the request, the winemaker
refused to go back on the deal :-).
At this time, it is very young, having just been bottled in late May of
2015, but will last for many, many years. The other barrels are being
sold at about $300/bottle….
