Freakshow Lodi Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Time for my #FridayCabernetfix . Here's a nice one from Lodi, California.

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, blueberries, cherries, licorice, oak, vanilla, licorice, spices, smoke, chocolates, mocha, earth, leather, peppercorn and graphite.

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

Dry on the palate and very fruity, with blackberries, sweet plums, cherry pie, dried figs, tobacco, spices, wood, vanilla, earth, chocolate cake, coffee, peppercorn and leather.

Medium plus on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This Lodi Cabernet is always enjoyable. Showing nice complexity and a great mouthfeel. As a 4 year old, it is much softer, with a tangy ending. Well balanced and enjoyable by itself or with food. Might be too fruity for some.

Wine Enthusiasts 91 points.

Pairs well with a big piece of steak.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

$18.

Private Selection Monterey County Cabernet Sauvignon

Very tasty. A strong nose with ripe plum and blackberry plus a hint of leather. On the palate it bursts with purple fruit and a piquant oak, from aging in Bourbon barrels. Solid but mild tannins on the spicy finish and some mineral aftertaste on the tongue. A very happy wine to drink while contemplating the meaning of life. Buy a case because the first bottle will be gone too soon, and then you'll have to drink something else! — 6 days ago

Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

An excellent medium bodied Cabernet, this wine is rich in creamy tannins but not so much as to be “liquid bread “. It has very pleasant, yet restrained, Bing cherry and red currant flavors. The oak is also applied with a subtle hand. Overall, this is an impressive offering, which should evolve nicely over a couple of years’ lying down. — 14 days ago

Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

This is a pretty big wine. Rich velvety plums came to mind and blackberries that reminded me like something from a high end dessert topping. If that makes sense. Smooth finish that did linger nicely. Did not have an opportunity to decant and because of the guests was limited to one glass. I would like more time with this wine to see how it developed after a bit of time. — 13 days ago
