Chiron Wines Candor Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015, Napa Valley, California

It’s time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a great example from Napa Valley.

Dark ruby in color, almost black, with a short purple rim.

Fruity on the nose with blackberries, black currants, black plums, cherries, cedar, vanilla, licorice, cloves, alcohol, chocolates, coffee, earth, diet coke, eucalyptus, leather, spices, black pepper, beef jerky and graphite.

Full bodied with medium acidity and long, long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, cedar, leather, earth, light vegetables, pencil lead, chocolates, tobacco, mocha, coke, herbs, spices and peppercorn.

Long finish with firm tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a yummy Napa Cabernet. Showing a great mouthfeel with nice complexity.

Still young and would benefit from 3 to 7 years in the bottle, and will probably be a 94+ point wine. (Although, it is very tasty right now).

Good right out of the bottle and better after 2 hours of airtime.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers.

Tasty and delicious.

14.8% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$85.
