Paso Dragon

Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon

Color of dark purple, quite inky. Nose of dark fruits with spice, fermented cabbage, vanilla, and just a bit woody. The nose is decent. Taste of ample acidity, good soft tannins, grassy notes plus strawberry, some more dark fruits and ripe grape, and a bit rind. Taste is balanced with flavors. Aftertaste shows some strength of alcohol, a bit peppery note, and some more strawberry. Quite nice. — 11 days ago

Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

#AgedWineTuesday

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.

16% (!) alcohol by volume.

98 points.

$130.

I would drink this all day long. Like pouring a pepper mill down your throat with a warm afterburn, what is not to love about that? Smooth and wonderful just like me. — 5 days ago

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!!!!!

Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Smooth and buttery. An amazing balance of cherry, tannin, oak, and baking spice. Not sure how long its been open... I ordered a glass at a wine bar... But I don't think it could get more delicious than this. — 3 days ago

Byron Blatty Wines

Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

It is time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a nice surprise.

Inky in color with a wide purplish rim.

On the nose cherries, blueberries, black currants, black plums, herbs, spices, light tobacco, light oak, dark chocolates and light earth.

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

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, ripe cherries, oak, light vanilla, spices, licorice, red candy, light earth, peppercorn, coffee, chocolates and herbs.

Nice length on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Los Angeles County. Easy drinking once it opens up properly. Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel.

This Single Vineyard Cabernet from Malibu Coast, is already showing nice complexity.

Needs 90 minutes in a decanter to open up properly, so be patient.

This 4 year old is starting to drink nicely now, but still young, and will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years. Showing good potential to become a 94+ point wine.

Smooth, rich and elegant. Fruit-forward and tangy. Good by itself or with food, and will pair nicely with BBQ Meats. I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

A blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc. Aged in 100% new French Oak barrels for 22 months.

15.1% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$150.
