Scott Lloyd with Frank Family Wines/Major brands.

Chardonnay Napa 2008.. a little flabby, maybe a little tired from the days events.. creme brulee without a lot of the cinnamon.some coffee on the finish.. mostly carneros fruit

Pinot Noir Napa 2009  smoky , earthy mushroom nose, tart dried fruits.. interesting finish.. lots of acidity...

Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2007... the last of the 07 to try.. a little stinky feet or napa stink as opposed to french stink.. not typical napa cab nose...juicy and lush on the palate.. nice berry and cedar

Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Reserve 2006.. from the best lots? again with the stinky feet.. not overly fruity though.. tight and restrained.. some vanilla and cassis on the finish... should hold for some time..
