The 2017 My Favorite Neighbor is also terrific and I suspect would cost 2-3 times its going rate if it was from Napa Valley. It's also the more elegant, perfumed, red-fruited release compared to the darker fruited Harvey and Harriet release. Classy notes of black raspberries, spice box, white flowers, lead pencil shavings, and tobacco leaf all emerge from the glass of this medium to full-bodied red, which offers a seamless texture, fine tannins, and a great finish. It will be better with 2-3 years of bottle age and keep for over a decade. Maturity: 2019-2029.
Inky ruby. Heady, spice-accented blackberry, cherry liqueur, pipe tobacco, incense and candied rose on the powerfully scented nose. Chewy and energetic in the mouth, offering deeply concentrated red and blue fruit preserve flavors and candied licorice, roasted coffee and allspice notes that build in the glass. Finishes on a bitter cherry note, delivering solid thrust, well-knit tannins and superb, spice- and floral-tinged persistence. Drinking Window: 2026-2036.
The My Favorite Neighbor 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon contains 22% Syrah and 3% Petit Verdot and was aged in 75% new French oak. It has a medium to deep ruby color, and the nose offers aromas of fresh blackcurrants, blackcurrant bud, exotic spices, bitter chocolate and blue fruit hints with classic touches of pencil shavings, cedar and baking spice. Full-bodied, it explodes with ripe black fruits and has a firm, grainy frame and great freshness, finishing long and spicy. Give this another 3-5 years in bottle. 7,200 cases produced. Drink Date: 2022-2028.
