Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Liquidity

Dividend Okanagan Falls Merlot Blend 2014

We’ve let this one age in the little cellar for the last 5 years. Wild blueberry jam, eucalyptus and white pepper on the nose. Medium bodied with well balanced tannins and a herbaceous and stewed black fruit palate with a dry finish. — 3 days ago

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars

Winemaker Series Battuello Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Ten years aging in my cellar at 52 degrees. Stags’ Leap 2012 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Decanting for one hour. This was recommended by the winery when I purchased it. Today is the day. Its now 10 years old. It is absolutely stunning! The cork was perfectly preserved with a minimal saturation level. The bouquet is a beautiful African violet and black licorice explosion in the nose. The initial palate delivers a robust dark berry and dark currant fruit. The mid pallet slides in with a velvety and Earthy quality. Lots of silk and butter. Then comes the rich mineral infused soil and Graphite middle. There is a bit of chocolate in the pallet. The finish is so smooth you might never stop sliding until you pull yourself another glass. The tannins are so soft and supple. it is moderately dry leaving you thirsty for more. Perfect Cab! — a day ago

Hawk and Horse Vineyards Sparkling Rosé of Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 , Lake County, California

Light salmon in color.

On the nose black currants, raspberries, spices, citrus, green apples, minerals, herbs and earth.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and small bubbles.

Dry on the palate with raspberries, strawberries, cherries, spices, earth, peppercorn, green apples and light grapefruits.

Nice length on the finish with spices and limes.

This is a delicious sparkling Rosé from Lake County in California.

Nicely balanced with nice complexity. Spicy and entertaining. Not bitter nor tart. Just right.

Will continue to age nicely in the next 5 to 7 years.

I really enjoy these Cabernet Sauvignon sparkling wines.

Good by itself or with food. Easy drinking and good for parties. I paired it with a pulled chicken salad and a gorgeous view.

In Sheep's Clothing

Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Really enjoy it. Much more like a Pinot - dark, long finish, no oak, fruit forward. But it’s very good, and decent priced — 11 days ago

Pretty good. I bought it on sale but I would buy it full price next time. I would describe it as light and fruit. It is also slightly dry. — 10 days ago

Foyt Family Wines

Anniversary 55 Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

It’s time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a delicious one from Mount Veeder.

Dark ruby in color with a reddish rim.

Strong nose of blackberries, sweet plums, cooked cherries, cedar, vanilla, espresso, cola, light herbs, earth, chocolates, tobacco, spices and peppercorn.

Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate and fruit forward, with black fruits, chocolates, cedar, light vanilla, tobacco, coffee, peppercorn and herbs.

Long finish with round tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon from the great 2016 vintage. Already drinking very nicely, even right out of the bottle, and better after 2 hours in the decanter.

Showing nice complexity with a great, spicy mouthfeel.

I had it over a year ago, and it is drinking even better now. Will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.

Good by itself or with food, and will pair nicely with BBQ Meats. I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

Hundred Acre Vineyard

Kayli Morgan Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

#AgedWineTuesday

Dark ruby in color with a brick rim.

Beautiful nose of blueberries, blackberries, black currants, cooked cherries, cedar, vanilla, mint, espresso, earth, spices, black pepper, light vegetables, eucalyptus and pencil lead.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with blueberries, black plums, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, spices, tobacco leaf, chocolates, coffee, green olives, peppercorn, earth, black tea, light vegetables and herbs.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This 13 year old Cabernet Sauvignon is drinking very nicely now, although still young.

Gentle, elegant and tasty. Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel. Nicely balanced with lots of fruits.

Tastes very much like a good quality left bank Bordeaux. Loved the nose here.


Will continue age nicely in the next 15 years. Would be nice to revisit it again in 5 years, as I see it becoming even better.

This Single Vineyard is a delicious wine that needs time to open up properly. I gave it 4 hours in the decanter.

Thank you Sonny for sharing this with me.

Good by itself as a sipping wine, and good with food. Will pair nicely with BBQ Meats. I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

Greer

Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Shay A
9.5

My first Greer to open. I had a glass of the 2011 2-3yrs ago and loved it, which prompted me to sign up. Borders Scarecrow’s JJCohn vineyard. Very Rutherford, and very 2015 (concentration to the max; a nice marriage of 2014’s open/sexy profile and 2016’s structured/serious profile). I double decanted this back to the bottle for an hour, and then back to the decanter for the remaining four hours.

Aaron Pott made, and very much in his style. Purple in the glass, and a high toned mix of red, blue and black fruits on the nose. A definite sweetness aromatically but in no way offputting. Behind the wall of ripe fruit is bright potpourri, bitter dark cocoa shavings, espresso and a mineral-earthy note.

The palate was much more compact. The fresh squeezed fruits continued but there was a darker core. Towards the end of the four hours, the profile started showing layers of violets, red and black currant, graphite, and high percentage dark chocolate. Excellent acidity and fine grained tannins on the finish.

For me, this falls in the “elegant” category. I could have simply smelled the wine all evening as the aromatics were intoxicating. On the young side, but I imagine this improves over the next 3-5yrs and becomes an even better bottle. Decant 3-4hrs or hold.
