This 3 year old Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley is starting to drink nicely, although still young.

It is time for my
#FridayCabernetfix. Here is a very tasty Cabernet Sauvignon.

Deep purple/ ruby in color with a wide purplish rim.

Pretty nose of wildflowers, blackberries, blueberries, cedar, coffee, vanilla, tobacco, dark chocolates, pencil lead, light earth, dried fruits, diet coke, dried meats and peppercorn.

Full bodied, smooth and elegant, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, cooked cherries, black currants, light tobacco, earth, herbs, spices, cedar, licorice, light vanilla and peppercorn.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and cherries.

This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Fruit forward with nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.

Still young, but already enjoyable, even by itself. Will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.

A good quality wine with the potential to become a 95+ point wine.

Rich, yet elegant. Spicy and entertaining.

Good right out of the bottle, and better with airtime. I decanted it for 3 hours.

Easy to drink by itself, and good with food too. Will pair nicely with a nice piece of steak.

A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon with Petit Verdot, Merlot Cabernet Franc and Malbec. Aged in Oak barrels for 22 months. A tiny production of only 600 bottles.

14.7% alcohol by volume.

Château Musar

Bekaa Valley Red Blend 1998

Kicking off birthday weekend with my first Musar experience. Sadly the cork did not hold up but after lots of straining I have some drinkable wine. The nose is extraordinary. Bordeaux profile with pencil shavings and tobacco leaf and a rich dark chocolate. Very expressive. On the palate this wine is mature and beautiful. Mostly aged Bordeaux character but there’s a mix of red cherry fruit and a touch of mint or menthol. Perfect drinking window as a lot of tertiary flavors are driving and the tannins are present but softened by age. — 11 days ago

If you don't mind me asking, what was the color like? The last '98 I had was quite pale...much more than I expected. Wondering if the bottle I had was flawed.

@Jay Kline of course - it was consistent with an aged bordeaux. a little faded and lighter but wouldn’t describe as pale

Figured. Thanks for the feedback. I need to revisit 1998
