It’s time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a delicious one from California.
Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.
Fruity nose of black plums, black cherries, light wood, vanilla, licorice, spices, cola, peppercorn, vinaigrette, dark chocolates, light vegetables and espresso.
Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, tobacco, vanilla, licorice, spices, espresso, cola, light vegetables, chocolates, leather and peppercorn.
Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cranberries.
This is a very tasty wine from Dry Creek Valley. Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Shows nice complexity with great structure.
I had it blind and I was really impressed with the complexity here. Drinks more like a Washington State Bordeaux blend. Delicious.
Thank you Wendy for sharing this with me.
Spicy and enjoyable by itself or with food. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
13.8% alcohol by volume.
