Dark ruby hue with high saturation. Aromas and flavors of blackberry, espresso, oak, plum, raspberry jam, and smoke. Full body; rich, medium-plus tannins; and medium-plus acidity. Jammy and compelling on the nose, while plush and dry on the palate. Flavorful and balanced Bordeaux-style blend. — 9 days ago

Happy National Wine Day!
This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley.
Showing black fruits with cedar, vanilla, cola, licorice, tobacco, chocolates, mocha, light vegetables, light earth and coffee.
Full-bodied, bold and big. Rich and extracted with medium plus acidity.
Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.
Still very young and extremely fruit forward. Needs 5 to 10 years of bottle time to relax, but already drinking very nicely. Very chocolatey with lots of coffee notes.
Needs 3 hours to open up properly and show the complexity. Really comes home after 4 hours of airtime, with nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.
A great wine to sip on, and would be great with a nice piece of steak too.
Aged for 2 years in French oak barrels, 60% New.
14.6% alcohol by volume.

It's definitely time for some good Cabernet on this #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a nice one from Napa Valley.
Dark ruby in color with a short reddish/ brick rim.
Fruity nose with blueberries, blackberries, licorice, wood, light vanilla, tobacco, spices, light earth, pencil lead, chocolates, coffee, black pepper and herbs.
Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and nice legs.
Dry on the palate with plums, black currants, light cedar, vegetables, pencil lead, light vanilla, tobacco, herbs, licorice, earth, peppercorn, espresso, chocolates and spices.
Medium on the finish with fine grained tannins and chili pepper.
This is a very tasty Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Elegant and smooth with a nice mouthfeel. Showing nice complexity at this point.
Needs an hour of airtime to open up properly, and bring out the complexity. This 9 year old is not from a good vintage, but it is drinking very nicely now.
A gentler version of the big Napa Cabernets. Subdued with lots of earth notes, at this point. I really enjoyed smelling on it for a long time.
A nice wine to pair with food or to have all by itself. I paired it with a Pepperoni pizza, but it was really nice with the brie cheese too.
