It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a great Cabernet Sauvignon.
Full bodied and smooth, with good balance and structure.
Dry and very fruity on the palate with medium acidity.
Showing blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, cedar, vanilla, spices, espresso, cola, light herbs, earth, chocolates, coffee and peppercorn.
Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.
This 8 year old Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley is gorgeous. Rich and extracted, yet elegant with nice complexity.
A beautiful wine that will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.
This Single Vineyard is delicious right out of the bottle, and better after 2 hours of airtime. It's definitely worth the wait.
Thank you Max for sharing this with me.
A great sipping wine, and will pair nicely with a big piece of steak too.
14.5% alcohol by volume.

I’m not sure where my previous note went.
Just when you thought you knew Italy, up pops this might as well be SwissFrench alpine darling from the Vallée D’Aoste.
Blanc de Morgex et de la salle. The town/village of Morgex lies just below Mt. Blanc. The Prié Blanc vines thrive in soil that has not known phylloxera.
Stones, herbs,and lemons all wrapped up in a rather electric pkg. I think drink young. Cold, the nose doesn’t have much to say past stone fruit, maybe rainier cherries.,But the palate is pow! Lemons, herbs, mineral, high acid and refreshing. With fried Branzino, perfect!
Always a sucker for high altitude Italian.

Foillard but make it alpine.
Fragrant, light and silky (cedar, rose hip, red and black currant, alpine berries). vintage after vintage, this wine always gets me. Paired with simple pasta and lentil salad. One site, one variety, one wine — no wine or place or label like it anywhere else in the world. — 6 months ago
N: Orange blossom special. Herbs( I guess you might say alpine) Straw, rocks.
P:Zing! Bright acidity melts into an herbal, mineral bath. Very forward.(front part of the under palate)
Young winemaker working near Mt. Blanc in Valle’e D’Aoste. An interesting Feb. quaff for sure, I could see a case going fast in the warm weather.
Pre-phylloxera Prié Franc, a new grape to me. — 10 months ago
My first fumin. Dark fruit, earth, spice, leather. For a wine that was 6 years old, it still had a remarkable Alpine freshness to it that I found to be very exciting. Will definitely try others! 90% Fumin, 10% Syrah. 8/14/22. — 2 years ago
