The nose of the “Prelude” Pinot from Andrew Rich is rich, expressive and on the darker side. All good, with notes of cocoa and a velvety-smooth sort of personality on the nose, which leads to a delightfully lush and palate-coating host of fresh currant, crushed berries and a finish that brings your mind back to the beginning of it all. THIS is a delightful Pinot with lots of life from a very solid vintage and producer. — 17 days ago
High altitude Cab from Argentina. The color is inky red with a watery rim. Rich ripe dark fruit and oak scents. Time has served this wine well! The fore-pallet is again, fruit forward, velvety! The mid pallet has a great counter-balance composed of bold, oaky, and earthy flavors. The finish is long, slightly spicy, with strong tannings. Definitely a good wine; fruit is high but everything else falls right into place. — 11 hours ago
Time for a good Cabernet for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is gorgeous one.
Dark inky in color (almost black) with a very short purple rim.
Strong nose of cooked plums, cherry pie, raisins, dried figs, oak, black currants, licorice, vanilla, dark chocolates, cola, pencil lead, light herbs, turmeric, light alcohol, peppercorn, spices, light earth, leather and tobacco.
Full-bodied, bold and elegant, with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry and very fruity on the palate with cooked black cherries, blackberries, plums, wood, spices, vanilla, tobacco, espresso, chocolates, earth, alcohol, graphite, cola and peppercorn.
Long finish with fine tannins, red pepper and tangy cherries.
This is a very tasty and young Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Already delicious. Rich, extracted and fruit forward. Well balanced with great complexity. Big and bold with a great mouthfeel.
Good right out of the bottle, but better after a couple of hours of decanting. It really shines after 6 hours of airtime.
Will be better in the next 5 to 15 years. This has the potential to get to 97-98 points.
A good sipping wine to share with friends and talk about. Still a little hot at the back of the throat. Smooth, spicy and elegant, yet powerful.
I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc.
15.2% alcohol by volume.
