Frank Family Vineyards

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Took a looong time to open. Once it did it was classic Napa cab. Excellent earth/chocolate after >4 hours. Still, there’s a plushness lacking. Very good, but we liked the recent BV tapestry we had better. Open to other user’s opinions. — 17 days ago

Insignia Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2006

2006 in 2019. Dry black cherries and blackberries. Cinnamon. Full mouthfeel moderate tannins. Delicious counterpoint to the BV Tapestry (a little lighter and less fruit forward with stronger tannin). — a year ago

Reserve Tapestry Napa Valley Red Blend 2015

A little heat on the nose and finish (15.2%). Cabernet predominates on the nose with some Merlot plum notes. Plush tannins. Really reminds me of Freemark. — 19 days ago

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

When in doubt, a sure bet is a well aged, good vintage Heitz. @Eric Shanks

I intended to grab an 06 but, mistakenly grabbed an 07. I’ve not had one of my 06’s yet...next weekend.

The one thing I do every time I open one of my ten year or older Heitz Napa Cabernet’s is smile & think, this was sub $35 at Costco. It’s the wine feeling/definition of stealing candy from babies.

The nose is a beautiful harmony of fruit, earth and florals. Steeped, somewhat stewed, candied fruits of; dark currants/cassis, blackberries, dark cherries, black raspberries, mix of purple fruits; boysenberries, ollieberries, & mulberries. Dark, sweet tarriness, anise to black licorice, touch of incense, fire ambers, dark spices with violets palate heat, chocolate pudding, vanilla, light; cinnamon, clove & nutmeg, dark chocolate, caramel, sweet, soft, dark spice, dark berry cola, dark cherry kirsch, dark, rich earth, limestone, crushed, dry rocks, dry top soil, moist clay, understated herbs & dry brush, brewed coffee, mint, some sage & bay leaf, tobacco, dry, old leather with amazing, fresh & slightly withering & candied; dark, red, blue, purple with a violet & lavender frame. The acidity is splendid. The long, ripe, ruby, lush, elegant, well crafted balance of fruit & earth is delicious and persists endlessly with a dark spice on the long set.

The body is; delightful, ripe, rich, lush & full. The structure, tension, length and balance are woven in a perfect tapestry. This 07 has another 10-15 years easily. The tannins are rounded, smooth but, still have a dark, chewy, tarriness with baby teeth. The beauty of the vintage is on full display. Steeped, somewhat stewed, candied fruits of; dark currants/cassis, blackberries, dark cherries, black raspberries, mix of purple fruits; boysenberries, ollieberries, & mulberries. Dark, sweet tarriness, anise to black licorice, touch of incense, fire ambers, chocolate pudding, vanilla, light; cinnamon, clove & nutmeg, dark & milk chocolate, caramel, sweet, soft, dark spice, dark berry cola, dark cherry kirsch, dark, rich earth, limestone, crushed, dry rocks, dry top soil, moist clay & dry brush, brewed coffee, mint, tobacco, dry, old leather with amazing, fresh & slightly withering & candied ; dark, red, blue, purple with a violet & lavender frame. The acidity is perfect. The finish is; rich, ripe, ruby, candied, well balanced fruit & earth, elegant and long sets into velvety, round tannins and mid dark spices.

Ours are long gone, early cold and no flowers left at home for them now, likely been 3 weeks since I've heard their chatter.

Ridge Vineyards

Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1997

Mind-blowingly good. Powerful, cassis-driven nose led a silky, layered tapestry of cedar, more cassis, old red cherry and fully resolved tannins. We didn’t decant but it faded from its peak within 30 mins of PnP, so drink up. — a year ago
