Vincity Wines Vinatlas 2014, California

It’s time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a tasty one from California.

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim. A very pretty color.

Fruity nose with blueberries, plums, currants, light cedar, vanilla, light earth, licorice, black pepper, spices and chocolates.

Medium plus in body and smooth, with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black cherries, sweet strawberries, oak, vanilla, licorice, spices, tobacco, coffee, dark chocolates, light earth and peppercorn.

Medium plus in finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a very enjoyable Cabernet Sauvignon based Bordeaux blend. Drinking very nicely now, and will continue in the next 5 years.

This 6 year old is showing nice complexity and balance, with a very enjoyable mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle, but gets more complex as it opens up. I let it decant for 2 hours.

A good quality wine. Delicious, interesting and engaging.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with meats, cheeses and light appetizers. Was really nice with the Italian salami.

A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon 30% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. Grapes are grown in Napa County and Sonoma County.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$60.
