Trilogy Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2018

It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix.

Inky in color with a short reddish rim.

Fruity nose with black currants, black plums, blueberries, ripe cherries, light cedar, light earth, vanilla, black pepper, chocolates, coffee and pencil lead.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and long skinny legs.

Dry on the palate with plums, black currants, coffee, oak, vanilla, vegetables, black pepper, spices, chocolates, dark coffee, herbs, tobacco leaf, leather and earth.

Medium on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a very nice Cabernet Sauvignon based blend from Napa Valley. Still young and will benefit from some bottle aging. Has good potential to become a really nice wine.

Good right out of the bottle, and better after 90 minutes of airtime. Really nice nose once it opens up.

Would be nice to revisit it in 5 years, however, already drinking nicely and showing nice complexity.

The Malbec seems very dominant at the moment. Spicy and tangy. Fruit forward and tasty.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with cheeses and olives.

A blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot and 8% Malbec. Aged in mostly French oak barrels for 18 months.

14.2% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

Seven Springs Passetoutgrain Gamay Pinot Noir 2019

This wine is fantastic, particularly for the price point and youthful vintage. The Gamay really adds a nice acidity and Rainier cherry fruit character. Reminds me of a Morgon but with more body and fruit. Still, has lovely earthiness with hints of menthol, vanilla, butterscotch, and pine.

I think those rating it lower are expecting an Oregon Pinot Noir, not what this is, which is more of an Oregon Beaujolais.

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a delicious one.

Inky in color with a short reddish rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, black currants, plums, sweet cherries, chocolates, cedar, light caramel, vanilla, licorice, spices, tobacco light cola and black pepper.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black cherries, plums, licorice, vanilla, cola, cedar, black coffee, chocolates, tobacco, earth, beef jerky and peppercorn.

Nice finish with fine grained tannins and red cherries.

This young Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley is already drinking very nicely. Showing nice complexity with a nice, soft mouthfeel.

Very true to the Terroir, without too much alcohol, which I liked.

Well balance and interesting. Fruit forward, rich and extracted.

Will age nicely in the next 5 to 7 years. Showing nice potential to become a 94+ point wine.

Good right out of the bottle, and better after an hour in a decanter.

Good by itself as a sipping wine, or with food. Will pair nicely with BBQ Meats. I paired it with Camembert cheese and prosciutto.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from Oakville and Rutherford, were aged in French (mostly) and American oak barrels for 18 months.

14.2% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Seven Springs Vineyard Pinot Noir 2000

A tad less intense than the 1998, also dark cherry, a tad softer, probably needs another 5 or so years in the cellar. — 25 days ago
