Mt. Brave

Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a delicious one.

Deep inky in color with a short purple rim.

Fruity nose of black currants, plums, cooked cherries, cedar, vanilla, light vegetables, herbs, tobacco leaf, spices, graphite, peppercorn, pencil lead, dark coffee and earth.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, cedar, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, peppercorn, light vegetables and pencil lead.

Long finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a delicious Napa Cabernet. Showing great complexity and mouthfeel. Big and bold, rich and opulent.

Balanced and enjoyable by itself or with food. A great wine from a great vintage, with great potential.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up (2 hours).

Robert Parker 92 points.

Drinking very nicely now and will be even better in the next 5 years.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats, cheeses and light appetizers.

A blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 3% Malbec. Aged in (81% new) French oak barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

Bourbon County Stout Aged In Bourbon Barrels 2016

Almost four years of age has mellowed out nicely. Still has a the bourbon hear letting you know it's there, but drinking very nice. Was a great finish to the night (and may have been a bad idea). — 2 months ago

Goose Bay

Spencer Hill Sauvignon Blanc 2019

This is a very tasty Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand.

Medium in body with high acidity, and a touch of residual sugar.

Showing limes, grapefruits, green apples, white pepper and a touch of peaches.

Easy drinking with a nice tangy finish. Not too complex and perfect for the beach or pool. Good all by itself.

12.5% alcohol by volume. Kosher.

The Goose Expression Cabernet-Shiraz Blend 2009

This is a rare Cabernet-Shiraz blend that has fruits and berry, but just right. Not too much; perfect balance. Really good!! The top of the cork was dried out and disintegrated, but with a little care the bottom half came out intact, so I didn’t have to decant to strain out the bits of cork. — 2 months ago
