Holy crap that’s good!! Spectacular. Dense fruit on the nose, substance on the palate. It’s incredible. Another 2012 Napa Cab that doesn’t disappoint. — 10 days ago
Textbook Napa cab - dense, dusty fruits, expressive spice from the oak, and good structure. Well-made. — 24 days ago
Consistently my favorite domestic Merlot because it’s consistently a stellar wine. Beautiful medium purple with lighter lavender undertones. I love smelling this wine, it may be the best part of the show. Highly expressive nose that starts off with smoke, dried herbs, and blackberry cobbler. There are some really nice floral notes here too. Wonderful Coombsville fruit shining here, she’s not heavy handed or bloated. None of that “a Merlot that drinks like a Cab” happening, there’s a softness and a deftness despite the 14.5. So many other wines just can’t maintain this kind of balance: rich and deep without being heavy. Tons of black and red cherries on the palate, along with vanilla and just the right amount of oak. Year in and year out this is one of Napa’s great Merlots. — 24 days ago

Unfortunately I had this bottle straight from the wine fridge with a chill ... and I shared it with my wife while watching Wrong Missy ... a brutal combination ... — 3 days ago

Rich silky Napa Cab. Black Cherry, fig plum. — 14 days ago
It’s time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a nice one from Napa Valley.
Deep purple in color with a short purple rim.
Fruity nose of blackberries, cooked cherries, black plums, vanilla, light cedar, chocolates, coffee, mocha, cola, light alcohol, tobacco, spices, pencil lead and peppercorn.
Full-bodied, bold and smooth, with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black cherries, blueberries, wood, vanilla, spices, espresso, dark chocolates, cola, peppercorn, tobacco leaf and light graphite.
Medium plus in finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.
This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Well balanced with nice complexity and mouthfeel. Easy drinking and good all by itself.
Good right out of the bottle and better once it opens up. Needs a couple of hours to peak. Would continue to age nicely in the next 5 to 10 years.
This 6 year old is gentle and elegant, yet muscular.
I paired it with a cheese plate and fresh berries.
14.5% alcohol by volume.
$65. — 3 days ago
