Sequoia Grove Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013, California 

My Rating 92 Points.   

Price $40.
Here is my Friday’s Cabernet fix.

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Gorgeous fruity nose of blackberries, blueberries, cherries, licorice, figs, cloves, earth, mint, oak, vanilla, leather, eucalyptus, spices, chocolates, tobacco, beef jerky and peppercorn.

Full bodied with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, earth, leather, beef jerky, vegetables and peppercorn.

Long finish with smooth tannins and black pepper.

A Great Napa Cabernet. Very typical and enjoyable by itself or with food. Nicely balanced and complex, with nice acidity to make it interesting.

Although it is very pleasant now, it is still young, and would be much better in 2 to 5 years.

Nicely paired with a nice piece of fillet mingon and grilled vegetables. This one is just delicious.

14.2% alcohol by volume.
