Here is my #FridayCabernetfix with a beautiful Bordeaux blend from Napa Valley.
Dark ruby in color with a short purple rim.
Strong nose of blackberries, sweet cherries, strawberry pie, dried figs, tobacco, cedar, leather, vanilla, licorice, spices, chocolates, mocha, coke and light earth. Gorgeous nose.
Full bodied, smooth and bold, with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, figs, raisins, vanilla, sweet cedar, leather, chocolates, tobacco, licorice, earth, peppercorn, spices and light vegetables.
Long finish with firm tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is s very tasty Cabernet Sauvignon based blend. Showing a great mouthfeel, although still young.
Nicely balanced with nice complexity, which will get better in the next 5 to 10 years.
Fruit forward with a touch of a Left bank Bordeaux style.
Needs a couple of hours to open up properly, which I didn’t have unfortunately, as it finished too quickly. Delicious wine.
A blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. Aged for 19 months in 65% new French Oak barrels.
14.5% alcohol by volume.
