My Rating 90 Points.
Here’s my Friday’s Cabernet fix…
Deep ruby in color with a purplish rim.
Fruity nose of blackberries, dried figs, cherry pie, currents, cedar, leather, chocolates, tobacco, vanilla, licorice, earth, spices, alcohol, cola, dark coffee, sage and peppercorn. A very typical Napa Cabernet nose.
Full bodied, bold and big, with medium plus acidity and long legs.
Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, cola, chocolates, mocha, cloves, earth, leather, licorice, spices and black pepper.
Long finish with big, firm, angular tannins and tart cherries.
A great Napa Cabernet Sauvignon.
Rich, extracted and fruity. Still young and not fully balanced with hugh tannins, but I enjoyed it very much. Nice complexity with a great mouthfeel.
Needs 3 to 5 years to age in the bottle.
I paired it with a 16 ounce T bone steak, which was lovely.
14.5% alcohol by volume.
