My Rating 88 Points.
Time for my Friday’s Cabernet fix!
Inky in color with a purplish rim.
Fruity nose of blackberries, blueberries, figs, cherry pie, currants, dust, earth, licorice, bell pepper, smoke, peppermint and peppercorn.
Full bodied and smooth, with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, figs, leather, light vanilla, vegetables, oak, bitter almonds, coffee, chocolates, pencil lead, earth and black pepper.
Medium plus on the finish with round tannins and tart cherries.
A nice Napa Cabernet. Not special, but a great wine to sip on. Well balanced, spicy and enjoyable, but not very complex. A Good wine to pair with BBQ Meats.
Could benefit from a few additional years in the bottle.
14.5% alcohol by volume.
