Vaca Vista Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Quick note from a charity dinner event. 4th bottle.
There are plenty of fresh red fruits to balance the ripe black fruits on the nose. Powerful full body, the flavor is more savory than the nose suggests. Oak is well integrated. Ample candied tannins.
Very nice cab from Oak Knoll, an AVA I’m not familiar with.

Blend of 88% Cab Sauv, 5% Petit Verdot, 3% Merlot, 3% Malbec and 1% Cab Franc sourced from estate-owned vineyards, aged 24 months in 100% new French oak, their 40th vintage. Still tasting great, young and juicy, should easily last another couple of decades+ in the bottle. Deep Ruby, dark fruits, spice, complex nose. On the palate juicy rich berry fruits, vanilla oak. well structured harmonious wine. Fine soft rich tannins, long finish ending with fruit, tobacco and sweet earthy tones. Wow! — 2 days ago

Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Meadowcroft Wines Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 Napa Valley, California

It is time for my
#FridayCabernetfix. Here is a very tasty one from Oakville.

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, sweet plums, cooked cherries, cedar, licorice, vanilla, spices, dark coffee, maple syrup, black pepper, light earth, spices, light vegetables, herbs and tobacco leaf.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black cherries, oak, coffee, tobacco, herbs, spices, dark chocolates and peppercorn.

Nice spicy finish with soft tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Soft and elegant. Fruit forward with nice balance.

Needs a few hours to open up properly, and I gave it 3 hours in the decanter.

Complex and tasty. Rich, extracted and elegant. The tangy finish making it interesting. Loved the nose once it opened up.

A good quality wine that will age nicely in the next 10 years. Has good potential to become a 94+ wine.

Good by itself or with food, and will pair nicely with a big piece of steak.

A blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Petite Verdot. A small production of only 6 barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$125.

Mercury Head Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

The Big Boy!!!! 15.7% abv. 2016 Mercury Head Cabernet Sauvignon stored for 6 years at 50 degrees in my wine cellar. Decanted for 45 minutes.:
The color is dark but not opaque. Legs are very slow and thick. The bouquet on this is fantastic! I smell Blackberry rhubarb pie fresh out of the oven. As my nose starts to tingle as my taste kicks in before even putting it to my lips. With the first sip, my palate is suddenly bombarded with fresh black berries and dark currant! There is a hint of black licorice. On the second sip, I can start to taste hints of black cherry and black pepper. Then there is a sudden development of white oak and graphite. After another sip and letting it settle with more aeration on my tongue, a quick swallow, and SHAZAM! A Velvety smooth, buttery delicious moderately dry beautiful cabernet Finish. My senses are aching for more!!!!!
