Joseph Phelps Vineyards

Insignia Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2006

Blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, and 1% Merlot sourced estate-owned vineyards in Rutherford (30%), South Napa (22%), the St. Helena home ranch (17%), and Stag's Leap District (Barboza Vineyard, 17% and Las Rocas Vineyard, 14%). Just opened this, 14 years in the bottle after a couple of years in the barrel! Still tasting well, young and juicy, should easily last another 14 years in the bottle. Deep Ruby, dark fruits, spice, complex nose. Palate reflects juicy rich berry fruits, well structured harmonious wine. Fine soft rich tannins, long finish ending with fruit, tobacco and earthy tones. Wow! — 3 days ago

Meadowcroft Wines Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 Napa Valley, California

It is time for my
#FridayCabernetfix. Here is a very tasty one from Oakville.

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, sweet plums, cooked cherries, cedar, licorice, vanilla, spices, dark coffee, maple syrup, black pepper, light earth, spices, light vegetables, herbs and tobacco leaf.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black cherries, oak, coffee, tobacco, herbs, spices, dark chocolates and peppercorn.

Nice spicy finish with soft tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Soft and elegant. Fruit forward with nice balance.

Needs a few hours to open up properly, and I gave it 3 hours in the decanter.

Complex and tasty. Rich, extracted and elegant. The tangy finish making it interesting. Loved the nose once it opened up.

A good quality wine that will age nicely in the next 10 years. Has good potential to become a 94+ wine.

Good by itself or with food, and will pair nicely with a big piece of steak.

A blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Petite Verdot. A small production of only 6 barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Yountville Sauvignon Blanc 2021

Pale lemon in color with a green tint.

Very aromatic nose of white flowers, citrus, limes, green apples, gooseberry, light tropical fruits, spices, guava, lemon peel and herbs.

Light to medium in body with medium plus acidity. Crisp and refreshing.

Dry on the palate with limes, grapefruits, green apples, earth, herbs and spices.

Spicy finish with almonds and limes.

This is a tasty Sauvignon Blanc from Napa Valley. Spicy, refreshing and tangy.

Feels very much like a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, and better after 15 minutes of airtime.

A good pool wine that I paired with a beautiful day by the beach. Will also pair nicely with oysters.

14.2% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

Janeen Proprietary Red Blend 2016

It is time for a tasty Cabernet for my #FridayCabernetfix.

Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.

Full bodied, smooth and elegant, with medium acidity.

Dry and very fruity on the palate with a great mouthfeel.

Showing black fruits with cedar, vanilla, leather, earth, Indian spices, chocolates, tobacco, peppercorn, coffee, light cola and pencil lead.

Long finish with round tannins and tangy cherries.

This 6 year old from the great 2016 vintage is showing great complexity now. A gorgeous wine that will age nicely in the next 20 years.

Delicious right out of the bottle and better with airtime.

I had it a year ago, and it was delicious then, but now it is so much better. What a wonderful surprise.

Rich, opulent, spicy and fruit forward.

I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses. A great sipping wine too.

A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc.

15.2% alcohol by volume.

96 points.
