Fucking delicious. Acidic saline bomb. — 7 days ago
Time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon.
Dark ruby/Inky in color with a reddish rim.
Fruity nose of blueberries, blackberries, black currants, Mediterranean spices, light cedar, chocolates, vanilla, earth, leather, tobacco leaf, wild flowers, black pepper and coffee.
Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with black currants, blackberries, light cedar, licorice, cola, chocolates, tobacco, herbs, light vanilla, spices, earth, peppercorn and leather.
Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley.
Rich, but not too much in your face. Nicely balanced with lots of elegance. Fruit forward with nice complexity and mouthfeel.
This is a great example of a young wine with a wonderful nose, without too many secondary notes. Very impressive.
Needed an hour to open up, but much better after 2 hours in the decanter.
I had the 2014 vintage not too long ago, and I liked this even better.
This 6 year old is already delicious, and will continue to age nicely in the next 15 years.
Good by itself as a sipping wine, and will pair nicely with a big piece of steak as well. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
A blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Petit Verdot and 1% Merlot. Aged for 28 months in French oak barrels.
14.5% alcohol by volume.
$275 (current vintage). — 16 days ago
Might be too tart and minerally for some, least at this young point in its development, but not me. Line, peach, and petrol still come through. I’ll be interested to see how this ages. — 10 days ago
Very light body, light but balanced tannin and acid, not much fruit, major flavor is the minerality characteristic of the volcanic Sicilian soil. — 8 days ago
Awesome. Knew it was going to be good at first smell. Bold flavor without being too overpowering. Paired perfectly with wagyu filet. Definitely recommend. — 19 hours ago
Picked up this at the winery. Aroma of mild green apples. Minerals and a gush of green apples in the middle. Then a quick fade to mild mild mild minerals. — 7 days ago
