Coombsville Merlot 2017

First time trying this Merlot. Dark ruby. Slightly floral, dark red/black fruit, oak, vanilla. Really nicely structured, all the pieces fit really nicely. Could still use a few years to soften these dense chewy tannins, but I bet will be nice after time in the glass. Dark plum, blackberry cobbler, oak, spices. Really drinks very nicely. Nice thick mouthfeel with a good med-long finish. — 4 days ago

Time Cabernet Sauvignon

This was a real interesting wine. A Cab from Napa valley where they blend the latest year with all the previous years. They have done that for at least 13 years. So, indeed, a single variety blend of time in a bottle. If I understood it correctly, they add two barrels a year to blend with the previous years and bottle two barrels a year that they sell, about 600 bottles. We had bottle 320 of year X.
The wine was extremely good! Nearly perfect. Like a Trojan horse entering with polished but intense tannins that bursted open in rich dark fruit flavors with hints of dark leather and tobacco. It lingered for minutes on the finish.

Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Deep purple in color with a very short purple rim.

Strong nose of blackberries, black currants, black plums, dried figs, raisins, cedar, vanilla, licorice, tobacco, coffee, mocha, dark chocolates and herbs.

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

Dry and very fruity on the palate with blackberries, black plums, cooked cherries, cedar, vanilla, spices, espresso, light earth, licorice, tobacco, chocolates and black pepper.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.

This young Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley needs a few hours to open up property.

Big and bold. Fruit forward and extracted. Rich and opulent.

Still very young, and needs at least five years in the bottle to mature properly. Will age nicely in the next 15 years.

Good by itself or with food. Will pair nicely with a big piece of steak. A good sipping wine too.

A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot. Aged for 22 months in 100% new French oak barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$115.

That’s more like it. The last bottle of ‘12 came up short for me. Either off bottle or off night for me. Probably the latter. This is great, but towards the bottom for me when comparing vintages from ‘07 - ‘19. Have a great weekend all! — 10 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!!!!!

It is time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon.

Deep purple in color with a wide reddish rim.

Fruity nose with blackberries, cooked cherries, milk chocolates, blueberries, cedar, earth, tobacco, light vanilla, licorice, spices, herbs and black pepper.

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

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cherries, wood, spices, earth, black tea, chocolates, tobacco, graphite, herbs, dark coffee and peppercorn.

Long finish with round tannins and tangy cherries.

This 4 year old Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, is drinking beautifully now. Still young, but already showing very nice complexity.

Good right out of the bottle, and better after 45 minutes of air time, when more complexity comes into play.

This delicious Cabernet will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.

Good by itself or with food. A good sipping wine, but will also pair nicely with a nice piece of steak.

Rich, yet elegant. Spicy, tangy and fruit forward.

I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses. Paired really nicely with the Romanian Genoa Salami.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from Coombsville were aged for 18 months in mostly French Oak barrels (43% new), with some American and Hungarian Oak.

14.7% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

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.
