It is time for a tasty Cabernet for my #FridayCabernetfix.
Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.
Full bodied, smooth and elegant, with medium acidity.
Dry and very fruity on the palate with a great mouthfeel.
Showing black fruits with cedar, vanilla, leather, earth, Indian spices, chocolates, tobacco, peppercorn, coffee, light cola and pencil lead.
Long finish with round tannins and tangy cherries.
This 6 year old from the great 2016 vintage is showing great complexity now. A gorgeous wine that will age nicely in the next 20 years.
Delicious right out of the bottle and better with airtime.
I had it a year ago, and it was delicious then, but now it is so much better. What a wonderful surprise.
Rich, opulent, spicy and fruit forward.
I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses. A great sipping wine too.
A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc.
15.2% alcohol by volume.
