It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix.
Deep ruby in color with a short purple rim.
Beautiful nose of blackberries, sweet plums, cooked cherries, peppercorn, cedar, vanilla, toast, tobacco, chocolates, spices, wild flowers, light alcohol and herbs.
Full bodied, smooth and elegant, with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry and very fruity on the palate with blackberries, plums, black currants, coffee, cedar, vanilla, leather, earth, peppercorn, spices, tobacco, chocolates and light cola.
Long finish with round tannins and cherries.
This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Howell Mountain.
This 6 year old is starting to drink very nicely. Still young and needs a few years in the bottle to mature properly. Would continue to age nicely in the next 10 to 15 years.
Fruit forward, rich and opulent. Spicy, tangy and interesting.
Needs 2 hours to open up properly, so be patient.
A great sipping wine, and will pair nicely with a nice piece of steak.
Aged for 19 months in oak barrels. Only 16 barrels produced. Unfiltered and unfined.
14.9% alcohol by volume.
$80. — 10 months ago
A very nice wine. Dense cab profile, with very balanced tannins and a lingering finish. Built for depth and storage, but also drinkable now with decant. — 4 years ago
lil' juicy fruit, more pronounced at room temperature versus cellar temp. Bramble, black fruits and cassis liquor. Tannins are present yet balanced coupled with the fruit and acidity. Gobs of black fruits and supple cream woven throughout. Ending with dry extracted tannins. — 7 years ago
Una moscatel Dulce con buena acidez por 9€. ¿Puede haber mejor RCP? Melocotón, albaricoque en nariz
Aterciopelado, sedoso y con volumen, buena acidez, fresco, con final agradable y largo recuerdo. Un vinazo de postre. — a year ago
