Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Deep purple in color with a very short purple rim.

Strong nose of blackberries, black currants, black plums, dried figs, raisins, cedar, vanilla, licorice, tobacco, coffee, mocha, dark chocolates and herbs.

Full-bodied, smooth and bold, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and very fruity on the palate with blackberries, black plums, cooked cherries, cedar, vanilla, spices, espresso, light earth, licorice, tobacco, chocolates and black pepper.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.

This young Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley needs a few hours to open up property.

Big and bold. Fruit forward and extracted. Rich and opulent.

Still very young, and needs at least five years in the bottle to mature properly. Will age nicely in the next 15 years.

Good by itself or with food. Will pair nicely with a big piece of steak. A good sipping wine too.

A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. Aged for 22 months in 100% new French oak barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Reserve Unfiltered Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1987

I found out early that my birth year is a poor vintage in all established wine regions. But within the last year I found ot that 87 is considered good in Napa. So I couldn’t resist to pick up this bottle when I found it. I like mature wine. This is more on the old side. But still impressively enjoyable. Tertiary aromas dominate. The palate is delicate with hints of plums, cedar and spice. — 3 days ago

Harlan Estate

Deeeep red Cab but with balance. Dark ruby, tart Cherry, current and a hint of raspberry. Take your time on this one. — 2 years ago

Paladini Vineyard Royal Escort Vintage Port Petite Sirah 2009

#AgedWineTuesday

Dark ruby in color with a reddish rim. Not showing much age.

Nose of black currants, black plums, raisins, dried figs, vanilla, cedar, cola, coffee, spices, chocolates, earth, vegetables, herbs, eucalyptus, turmeric, peppercorn, celery, graphite and alcohol. What a wonderful nose.

Medium plus in body with high acidity and fat legs.

Sweet on the palate with nice balance and nice length on the finish.

This 13 year old sweet wine from Napa Valley is drinking so beautifully right now, and will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.

Showing great complexity at this point, with lots of chocolate and coffee notes, intertwined with spices and earth notes.

Thank you Mike for sharing this with me.

Mercury Head Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

The Big Boy!!!! 15.7% abv. 2016 Mercury Head Cabernet Sauvignon stored for 6 years at 50 degrees in my wine cellar. Decanted for 45 minutes.:
The color is dark but not opaque. Legs are very slow and thick. The bouquet on this is fantastic! I smell Blackberry rhubarb pie fresh out of the oven. As my nose starts to tingle as my taste kicks in before even putting it to my lips. With the first sip, my palate is suddenly bombarded with fresh black berries and dark currant! There is a hint of black licorice. On the second sip, I can start to taste hints of black cherry and black pepper. Then there is a sudden development of white oak and graphite. After another sip and letting it settle with more aeration on my tongue, a quick swallow, and SHAZAM! A Velvety smooth, buttery delicious moderately dry beautiful cabernet Finish. My senses are aching for more!!!!!

Dark ruby, almost inky in color, with a short brick rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, black currants, cooked plums, cherry pie, spices, cedar, vanilla, leather, light earth, pencil lead, peppercorn, coffee, mocha and tobacco leaf.

Full bodied, bold and smooth, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and very fruity on the palate with blackberries, cooked cherries, cedar, licorice, vanilla, leather, black currants, sweet chocolates, coffee, cola, peppercorn and spices.

Long spicy finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley (To Kalon Vineyard). Showing great complexity with a great mouthfeel.

Rich, extracted and opulent. Fruit-forward and elegant. A delicious wine. Spicy with a teeth staining color.

This 15 year old from the great 2007 vintage is just beautiful now. Has a lot of years in it still, and will continue to age nicely in the 15 years.

Delicious right out of the bottle, and even better after 3 hours of airtime.

Good by itself as a sipping wine. I just loved it.
