Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

It is time for my #FridayCabernetfix.

Deep purple in color with a purplish rim.

Nose of blueberries, black plums, currents, oak, licorice, spices, dark chocolates, light bell pepper, dark coffee, herbs and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and log legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, licorice, light oak, spices, dark chocolates, earth, peppercorn, herbs and light vegetables.

Spicy finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa valley. Nicely balanced and muscular, with a soft mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle, and better after 90 minutes in the decanter. Once it opens up, more earth notes show up, and it gets more interesting.

This 5-year-old is already showing nice complexity with good structure. Spicy and tangy.

Easy drinking right out of the bottle, good by itself or with food. This is not the 'in your face' kind of Napa Cab. Feels like a fruit forward Left Bank Bordeaux.

Still young, and needs a few more years in the bottle to mature properly. Would be nice to revisit it in 5 years.

Wine Advocate 91 points.

Will pair nicely with BBQ Meats. I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were aged in French and American Oak barrels (33% new) for 20 months.

14.3% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$68.

Les Vaucrains Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2011

2011 vintage. Opened-not decanted-and tasted after three hours. Medium body. Nearly as much stuffing as a holiday fowl and the nose was replete with orange citrus and baking spices. Has at least another decade of excellent enjoyment if not two. 4.18.24. — a month ago

Napa Valley Merlot 2019

Revisiting an old friend. The ‘19 Merlot doesn’t disappoint. Keenan is always solid. Layers of red fruit, long finish. Nice acidity. — 2 months ago
