Medium lemon with aromas of stone fruits, spice, citrus, floral and yeasty notes. On the palate flavors of apple, peach & apricot with some lemon citrus zest, honeysuckle and nutty notes. Smooth, long finish, well balanced with lively acidity, ending with fruit, integrated with wet stone mineral character. Pair with a grilled King Salmon with Beurre Blanc. Nice now and will age a bit more! — 3 months ago
First enjoyed with Dave Roesler at Luna in 2017 or 18. It was $70. Found it for $20 this winter of 2022 at Lazy Acres and shared with the Hidegs. Also amazing — a year ago

2020 vintage. Another great effort from this Château. Already easy drinking. A lot of sweet fruit, smooth with a nice ripe tannic bite, freshness and good length. Merlot 70%, Cabernet Franc 16%, Cabernet Sauvignon 9%, Carmenère 2% and Noir de Pressac (aka Malbec) 2%. Abv. 14,5%. Hubert de Boüard consults.Don't know if it will make old bones ( a 2008 recently tasted was totally over the hill). — 10 months ago
After our little vacation (what a pleasure and luxury after the year we’ve all had) it’s back to home cooking and drinking, and this bottle was sitting aside in the cellar because I was too lazy to reshelve it after pulling it out a few weeks ago and not getting around to drinking it. It smells of dusty dried sage and other herbs with a touch of cedar and red fruits beneath. Exceedingly silky, with dashi and miso notes mixing with raspberry and dried herbs that have this lovely aromatic sweetness that lingers with the herbs in the finish. Very pretty. — 2 years ago
It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix.
Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.
Earthier on the nose with wet leaves and forest floor notes. Really enjoyed the nose and kept smelling on it.
Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry and fruity on the palate with medium acidity and long legs.
Showing black fruits with tobacco, cedar, vanilla, licorice, spices, eucalyptus, chocolates, herbs, cocoa, earth and peppercorn.
This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Showing lots of eucalyptus and licorice notes. Nicely balanced with nice complexity.
Good right out of the bottle, and better after an hour of airtime. Gets spicier as it opens up.
This 8 year old Cabernet Sauvignon from the great 2015 vintage is gorgeous now, and will continue to age nicely in the next 5 to 10 years.
