It’s time for my #FridayCabernetfix. This is a wonderful Cabernet from Napa Valley.
Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.
Fruity nose with blackberries, black currants, cherry pie, cedar, vanilla, leather, spices, earth, chocolates, coffee, mocha, tobacco, licorice, peppercorn, cloves, beef jerky and black pepper.
Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and nice long legs.
Dry and extremely fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, sweet cherries, wood, licorice, earth, spices, chocolates, tobacco, mocha, coke, earth, light vegetables, pencil lead and peppercorn.
Long finish with round tannins and tangy cherries.
This is a great Napa Cabernet. Very enjoyable already, but will be so much better in 5 years. Well balanced with nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.
Extremely fruity right now, and needs some time to soften up and get more complexity.
Needs 90 minutes to open up properly and show tannins. Good enough to have all by itself as a sipping wine.
Good with food too, like a big piece of steak.
This is just delicious. Tasty, even though it is so young.
14.7% alcohol by volume.
