This is a very enjoyable Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa valley. Doesn't drink like one, though. Feels more like a right bank Bordeaux.
Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Spicy and interesting. Not a typical Napa Cabernet style.
This 8-year-old Is drinking nicely now and will continue to age nicely in the next 5 to 7 years.
I had it 4 years ago, and liked it better this time. Showing more complexity now, which I loved.
Good by itself and better with food. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot and 4% Cab Franc. Aged for 22 Months in 50% new French Oak barrels. A small production of only 976 bottles.
14.5% alcohol by volume.

Found at Oggi for Dave's birthday. Has an earthiness he likes — 6 years ago
Very delicious Italian white paired with sea scallops and linguini. Basically a scampi. Crisp minerality. Would buy again very approachable and enjoyed by a wide variety of drinkers. — a year ago
Complex. Nice core of orchard fruit, prominent apples, complimented by stone, salt, and maybe a tad of white pepper. Plus, smoke, rose, and grass. Great structure, silky texture, soft on the palate, nice backbone. Very alluring. — 2 years ago
Time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a delightful and unique Napa Cabernet.
Ruby in color with a wide reddish rim and medium plus intensity.
Fruity nose with cherries, black plums, sweet strawberries, licorice, light vanilla, oak, spices, light vegetables, pencil lead and black pepper.
Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with sweet raspberries, cherries, oak, light vanilla, spices, vegetables, earth, leather, tobacco leaf, graphites, herbs and peppercorn.
Long finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a very nice Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Not a typical Napa Cabernet, and very enjoyable. Balanced with mild complexity.
Easy to drink, soft and smooth with mostly red fruits. Not as fruit forward, in your face, kind of red wine, as I expected from a Napa Cabernet, but rather a soft red wine with lots of elegance. Feels like a graceful right bank Bordeaux.
Needs 90 minutes to open up properly and remove some of the acidity.
Would age nicely in the next 5 to 10 years and bring in some more complexity. I would want to try this in two to three years to see how it evolves, as I see it might be a little young right now.
I paired it with cheeses and crackers.
A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon,
6% Merlot, and 4% Cab Franc. Aged for 22 Months in 100% French Oak
14.5% alcohol by volume.
