At 15 years old, perhaps slightly past peak maturity but still fruit dominated, with a little tannin. Nicely balanced though only a trace of structure; very pleasant. — 10 days ago

Time for my Friday's Cabernet fix. Here is a nice one from Sonoma.
Dark ruby in color with a short purple rim.
Fruity nose of blackberries, blueberries, wood, cloves, vanilla, spices, espresso, chocolates, metals, green vegetables, light bell pepper and earth.
Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, bell pepper, green vegetables, coffee, chocolates, light earth, tobacco, beef jerky and peppercorn.
Medium plus on the finish with firm tannins and tangy cherries.
This is a very nice Cabernet Sauvignon from Alexander Valley. Showing nice complexity and a great mouthfeel. Fruity and rich, with lots of bell pepper notes.
Still young and needs another few years in the bottle to mature properly. Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up and shows some tannins (60 minutes).
Fruit forward, tasty and good by itself or with food. Solid and dependable.
14.9% alcohol by volume.

Natural Cab Franc that is light, fresh, and quaffable with a nice kiss of bret. Earthy and soft. Great wine in a really tough vintage. — 16 days ago
