Very good. Heavy than most. Would be good with a filet. Not for the average drinker. — 7 days ago

It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a beautiful one.
Dark inky in color with a short purple rim.
Fruity nose of blackberries, sweet cherries, raisins, dried figs, tobacco, cedar, leather, vanilla, licorice spices, chocolates, mocha, coke, metals, light earth, pencil lead and peppercorn.
Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry and very fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, cedar, leather, earth, vanilla, licorice, peppercorn, spices, chocolates, tobacco, mocha, coke and beef jerky.
Long finish with round tannins and dark coffee.
This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Showing nice complexity with a great mouthfeel.
Good right out of the bottle, and better as it opens up and shows more complexity. Good by itself or with food. I loved smelling on it for a long time.
This 6 year old from the great 2013 vintage is tasty and delicious. Has the potential to be a 97 point wine in 5 years.
Thank you Barry for sharing.
This is a nice wine to drink all by itself and talk about. Well balanced, rich and expressive.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were aged in French oak barrels for 20 months.

This young Pinot Noir from Oregon is starting to drink nicely now. Showing mild complexity and a soft mouth feel.
Good right out of the bottle and gets earthier as it opens up. Good by itself and better with food.
This Single Vineyard is still young, and would age nicely in the next 7 years. Would be nice to revisit it in 2 to 5 years. Showing great potential.
I paired it with Italian Prosciutto and goat cheese.

July 2020. GSM blend from Argentina. 67% Grenache, 14% Syrah, 19% Mourvèdre. So good. Black fruit, long finish, complex. Not a wimpy wine to be sure. I’ve loved everything I’ve tried so far from Revana Family Vineyards — Alexana Pinot, and the Soleado from Corazon del Sol. — a year ago
Nice floral notes frame this Pomerol style wine. Probably too early to drink but what the heck!!! — 2 months ago
To celebrate International Riesling Day, I opened a tasty and interesting one from Oregon.
Dry on the palate with lemons, diesel, minerals, earth, red and yellow apples, spices, pears, light pineapples and guava.
Medium plus in body and elegant, with pretty legs.
Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel.
Tangy finish with limes. Crisp and refreshing.
This 4 year old, Single Vineyard Riesling, is drinking very nicely now. Would be nice to revisit it in 3 years.
Tasty and easy drinking, but also intriguing.
I had it by the pool.

Dry on the palate with limes, citrus, green apples, light grapefruits, vegetables and bitter herbs.
Long tangy finish with almonds.
This is a very interesting Riesling from Oregon. A little spicy with earth notes. Really enjoyed the nose here.
A good quality wine. Will be interesting to revisit it in 5 years.
Tangy and refreshing, and good by itself or with food.
I enjoyed it all by itself, by the lake.
