Just concluded our annual Fall seclusion at our cabin in the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again. Notes are somewhat brief, as my focus is relaxing and watching the Common Loons swimming and diving in the cove in front of our camp.
Nose has ripe black cherry, roasted red pepper, dried grape vine and over-ripe plum.
Palate has prune, ripe red raspberry, tannic black cherry, dry earth, black tea and grippy tannins. Likely this could hold another 4-6 years.

Last night I opened the 2006 Bodega Catena Zapata Cabernet Sauvignon High Altitude Grapes Selected by Laura Catena, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Mendoza, Argentina.
On the nose there is Brooding Dark and rich dark fruit. Black cherry, blackberry, black currant, chocolate, mint, vanilla, smoke, oak and dark earth.
On the palate for a 13 year old wine I find it still vibrant with lots of life left, black cherry, blackberry, black currant, cassis, herbs, cedar, oak and a rich earthy component.
This wine is full bodied with medium + acidity and medium + gripping mouth coating tannins that leads into a long dark fruit and earthy finish. Enjoy your weekend, be safe and share a good bottle of wine. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 23 days ago
