Grand Napa Vineyards Stone Crib Vineyard Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, Napa Valley, California
It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley.
Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.
Fruity nose of blackberries, sweet cherries, cedar, spices, espresso, vanilla, dark chocolates, light earth, tobacco leaf and black pepper.
Full bodied and smooth, with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with blackberries, plums, cooked cherries, oak, dark chocolates, vanilla, licorice, cloves, spices, coffee, peppercorn, earth, black tea, light wet leaves and herbs.
Nice finish with round tannins and tangy cherries.
This Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from Rutherford is still young, and would be even better in a few years. Already showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel.
Rich, yet elegant. Nicely balanced and smooth.
Good right out of the bottle and better after 2 hours of airtime. Fruit forward and extracted.
This 4 year old will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years. Will be nice to revisit it in 3 years and see how it evolved.
Good by itself or with food. Paired beautifully with a filet minion and asparagus.
Grapes were aged for 24 months in (80% new) French Oak barrels. Limited Production.
14.8% alcohol by volume.

My new Favorite white, just love mountain fruit! Named for mountain range dividing Napa & Sonoma, old stone winery dug into side of dormant volcano crater in 1889, remained in production ever since. Pale lemon with aromas of Tropical and stone fruit with complex spice and floral notes. On the palate flavors of apple, pear and citrus with light oak and nutty tones, fresh and vibrant, well integrated. Long finish ending with fruit and flinty mineral characteristics. Long aging potential. Nice! — 3 days ago
