CrossBarn Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a delicious one.

Dark ruby in color with a short purple rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, blueberries, cherries, cedar, leather, earth, vanilla, licorice, spices, chocolates, tobacco, peppercorn, mocha and coffee.

Full bodied, bold and smooth, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, vanilla, licorice, spices, tobacco, chocolates, light herbs, mocha, coke and light earth.

Medium finish with fine tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a very tasty Napa Cabernet based Bordeaux blend. Well balanced and enjoyable by itself or with food.

Showing nice complexity and a great mouthfeel. Very typical for a Napa Cabernet with lots of cedar and vanilla flavors.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up. Will get better in the next 5 to 10 years.

I had it all by itself. Great wine from a great vintage. Yummy and delicious.

A blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, 3% Merlot and 2% Petit Verdot.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

Celebrating my wife’s 31st birthday with some of her favorite things: friends, pizza, and wine.

I’ve grown fond of this grower/producer. Very pure and clean blend.

Comtesse Marie de France Grand Cru Champagne Pinot Noir 2006

17.5/20 (93/100) Красивый и элегантный аромат с нотами засахаренных яблок и груш, цедры лимона, дыни, апельсинов, папайи и бриоши. Тельное с довольно высокой кислотностью. Насыщенное во вкусе. Богато. — 6 days ago
