It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a gorgeous one from Napa.
Very dark ruby in color with a pretty reddish rim.
Beautiful nose of black currants, figs, vanilla, cedar, sweet strawberries, cooked cherries, licorice, eucalyptus, bell pepper, earth, mint, tobacco leaf, spices, vegetables, celery, pencil lead and black pepper.
Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, plums, cooked cherries, dried cedar, leather, vanilla, licorice, spices, chocolates, tobacco, herbs, light vegetables, graphite, vegetables and peppercorn
Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a delicious Cabernet Franc from Napa Valley. Showing a gorgeous nose with great complexity.
Already very tasty, although still young. A little hot right now, but that will go away with proper aging.
Would be nice to revisit it in 6 years, and will age nicely in the next 20 years. Showing great potential to become a 97+ point wine, and already delicious by itself.
Needs a couple of hours to open up properly, show the tannins, and the beautiful nose, so be patient.
This Single Vineyard is so interesting and unique. Nicely balanced with nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.
Soft, yet powerful. Rich and extracted. Elegant, tangy and fruity.
A blend of 91% Cabernet Franc and 9% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aged for 20 month in (90% new) French Oak barrels. A very small production of only 18 barrels.
14.7% alcohol by volume.

Cheese place in Charleston. Nice easy drinking crisp wine. Really enjoyed it. — 21 days ago
Razzy, with a bouquet of lemon verbena and oregano immersed in lime and chalk. Real depth here, with gooseberry predominate, and fresh sage a close second. Tangerine and grapefruit pith paying dividends. Generous, with the acid to back it up. Highly recommended.

Gosh, this shit rocks! Takeout sushi at home... amazing fatty tuna sashimi..: of course champagne. Gorgeous balance, brilliant tiny bubbles, and impeccable lightness of being (sorry lit majors). I’m searching out more of this in recent years. For good reason. At this price point, why ever drink anything else? Green apple, pear, lemon pith..and absolute pleasure. — 22 days ago

Выпито с Ботеновским Сергеем в ЦБА 06.04.21 пару дней назад Сергею стукнуло 60 и мы поехали отметить это событие в принадлежащий ему центр бизнес авиации. Что сказать - Европа отдыхает, молодец Сергей. С такими людьми страна не пропадёт! А вино среднее, не мое... — 4 days ago
