This week, my Friday’s Cabernet fix, is from Napa Valley.
Beautiful burgundy in color with a dark purple rim.
Nice fruity nose with black currants, blackberries, cherry pie, green pepper, chocolates, tobacco, herbs, oak, vanilla, vinegrete, asparagus, licorice, earth, green notes and black pepper.
Full bodied with medium plus acidity and nice long legs.
Dry on the palate with blackberries, plums, cherries, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, earth, spices, peppercorn, coffee, dark chocolates, tobacco, spices, black tea, bell pepper, green vegetables and herbs.
Medium plus in finish with green, firm tannins and raspberries.
This is a very nice Cabernet Sauvignon. Spicy, interesting and very complex. Still young and needs a few years in the bottle to become more harmonious. Now, it is a little unbalanced, with some bitterness, a lot of green notes, and high acidity. Too much acidity for the fruit it shows.
Nonetheless, it is very enjoyable by itself and much better with food, like BBQ Meats.
Needs a couple of hours to open up and get the tannins to show up.
14.1% alcohol by volume.
