Fresh Off The Truck: 2018 Wine Access Moundsman Rutherford Napa Cab

Friday, January 15, 2021

The Moundsman I posted about last week arrived yesterday.

I cracked a bottle of Lachini Willamette Valley Pinot Noir last night (that was a great one, went so fast I didn't have time to post about it here) but got a chance to try the Moundsman tonight.

Let's get right into it...

Luscious and fruit forward. Bold, confident and elegant. This is an appealing crowd-pleasing wine. Silty slightly-sweet tannins on the finish.

I'd place this on par/perhaps just behind the Yesterday series as one of the better Wine Access "NDA" wines. More drinkable in its youth (less formidable tannins) but try to hold off for 4 years post-vintage and this will be singing.

93/100 WWP: Outstanding

If you don't have a Wine Access account:
If you do have a Wine Access account get 20% off with this offer.

Bottom Line

This wine is still available in most regions. Worth giving a try if you've been on the fence about these NDA wines.
