Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

It’s time for my Friday's Cabernet fix. Here is a nice one from Sonoma County, California.

Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.

Fruity nose with black currants, cherries, plums, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, peppercorn, earth and light vegetables.

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

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, spices, chocolates, tobacco, peppercorn, earth, green tea, vegetables and graphite.

Medium-plus on the finish with fine-grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This 7-year-old Cabernet Sauvignon from a Double Magnum is a nice surprise. Very tasty and easy to drink.

Well balanced with nice complexity. Spicy with a nice mouthfeel.

Needs a full hour to open up properly. I used 4 decanters.

After 2 hours of airtime, it drinks like a Left Bank Bordeaux. Interesting stuff.

Could continue to age nicely in the next 5 to 10 years.

I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were aged in French and American oak barrels for 12 months.

14.2% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$120 (double Magnum).
