Found this to be drinking quite well, tannins were integrating nicely, distinctive tertiary character has taken form, and the wine carried a gracefulness without loosing any rustic charm. Dried brambly fruit, wet leaves, dried leather, sous bois, dried flowers, and almost this parched landscape quality, like high desert or chaparral sort of note. Very intriguing and brought lots of joy to a simple French meal. Procured in FR, not a KLWM import — 4 days ago
It’s time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a great one from Napa Valley.
Dark ruby in color with a short purple rim.
Fruity nose of blackberries, black plums, black currants, sweet cherries, dried figs, cedar, vanilla, licorice, chocolates, mocha, coffee, coke, tobacco and black pepper.
Full-bodied and bold with medium acidity bold and long legs.
Dry on the palate, and very fruity, with blackberries, blueberries, figs, raisins, licorice, vanilla, leather, spices, graphite, light vegetables, alcohol, peppercorn, coffee, dark chocolates, coke and earth.
Long spicy finish with round tannins and tangy cherries.
This is a young Cabernet from Napa. Already drinking nicely with lost a fruits and mild complexity.
Showing a nice mouthfeel with solid structure. Spicy and bold.
Needs 90 minutes to open up properly and show the tannins.
Need years in the bottle to mature and get more complexity. Would be better in the next 5 to 15 years.
I had it all by itself, but a big piece of steak would be nice too. 😊
