It is time for a tasty Cabernet for my #FridayCabernetfix.
Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.
Full bodied, smooth and elegant, with medium acidity.
Dry and very fruity on the palate with a great mouthfeel.
Showing black fruits with cedar, vanilla, leather, earth, Indian spices, chocolates, tobacco, peppercorn, coffee, light cola and pencil lead.
Long finish with round tannins and tangy cherries.
This 6 year old from the great 2016 vintage is showing great complexity now. A gorgeous wine that will age nicely in the next 20 years.
Delicious right out of the bottle and better with airtime.
I had it a year ago, and it was delicious then, but now it is so much better. What a wonderful surprise.
Rich, opulent, spicy and fruit forward.
I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses. A great sipping wine too.
A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc.
15.2% alcohol by volume.

Deep Ruby, dark fruits, spice, complex nose. Palate reflects juicy rich berry fruits, well structured harmonious wine. Fine soft rich tannins, long finish ending with fruit, tobacco and earthy tones.

👃 is incredible. Black and blue fruit + olive.
Medium+ body, chewy mouthfeel. Blackberry, currant, black cherry, touch of dust, and acidity that is Corison. This is my favorite Napa Corison. Different than the ‘14s, ‘16’s, and 18’s that I love. Thanks @Cathy Corison !! — a day ago

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.
Fruity nose of blackberries, sweet plums, cooked cherries, cedar, licorice, vanilla, spices, dark coffee, maple syrup, black pepper, light earth, spices, light vegetables, herbs and tobacco leaf.
Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black cherries, oak, coffee, tobacco, herbs, spices, dark chocolates and peppercorn.
Nice spicy finish with soft tannins and tangy cherries.
This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel. Soft and elegant. Fruit forward with nice balance.
Needs a few hours to open up properly, and I gave it 3 hours in the decanter.
Complex and tasty. Rich, extracted and elegant. The tangy finish making it interesting. Loved the nose once it opened up.
A good quality wine that will age nicely in the next 10 years. Has good potential to become a 94+ wine.
Good by itself or with food, and will pair nicely with a big piece of steak.
A blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Petite Verdot. A small production of only 6 barrels.
