My Rating 95 Points.
Time for my Friday’s Cabernet fix…
Inky in color with a short purple rim.
Strong nose of blackberries, plums, cherries, black currants, cedar, leather, licorice, vanilla, vegetables, chocolates, tobacco, herbs, spices, peppercorn, bell pepper and earth.
Full bodied, bold, rich and extracted with medium acidity and long long legs.
Dry and extremely fruity on the palate with blackberries, plums, black currants, cooked cherries, cedar, leather, chocolates, tobacco, vanilla, licorice, earth, coffee, spices, pencil lead and peppercorn.
Long finish with firm, round tannins and spices.
This Napa Cabernet is awesome (and expensive). Nicely balanced and complex with lots of chocolate and coffee flavors.
Could use a few more years in the bottle to mature properly, but drinking extremely well now.
Good all by itself or with food, like BBQ Meats. I paired it with hard cheeses and appetizers.
I decanted it for 3 hours, but it was nice enough right out of the bottle.
Drank from a Magnum. Delightful and delicious.
14.7% alcohol by volume.
