St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

At 10 years of age, I think this one is doing well. Probably a couple of years away from the top but overall excellent structure. Compared to a 13, this cork was a bit darker as you would expect. Darker fruit profile on the nose and palate as well. Blackberry, pie spice, dark chocolate, herbal. Finishes with a hint of cola. Tannins have started to resolve. All in all this wine has come along nicely. A bit different than the 13 that it was consumed alongside, but both wines have excellent structure and an excellent pedigree! — 5 days ago

10yrs in and I think this is still on its way to the top. Fabulous right now though (and obviously more approachable than the ‘13 I opened alongside). The fruit has had time to settle and it has allowed the black fruit to encapsulate everything else...baking spices, dark cocoa, and a medium amount of oak (not overpowering at all). More of the same on the palate with additional notes of dark red fruit. Tannins have integrated nicely. Thanks, @Mark Flesher .

La Magdalena Napa Valley Cabernet Franc Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Love the Cab Franc here. Blackberries and oak with a hint of caramel on the nose. Lots of fruit but round with some earthy flavors as well. Looooooong finish. Summary: Pure deliciousness. — 2 days ago

"Les Ivrettes Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Definitely an old school Napa Cabernet. Red fruit / with a hint of tobacco and cedar. It’s quite good now but still has years ahead of it... — 9 days ago

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Not ready to go yet. Has all the bones and has great structure, but has a lot of astringency on the finish. Black, purple and blue fruits. Finishes with stiff oak tannin but had a decent amount of black pepper spice on the finish as well. This wine was very pleasant to drink, and by the time I got around to it I think that it had been open for about 3 hours or so which definitely did help. Still, I think the best years of this wine are at least 4-5 years ahead, and think this one will drink well for 10-15 years. — 14 days ago

Wight Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

So impressed with this new find of ours. Whether it’s the regular cab, or the Wight designation, they are both excellent value. This wine presents the cabernet varietal, perfectly, without the viscosity and exuberance that some producers seek.
The nose displays freshly cut herbs and barrel toast. The palate presents cinnamon, overripe cherries, coffee, and a wisp of blueberries. This is Day 3 since opening, so it has continued to evolve. Finishes with a long, mellow sweetness. Tannins are ripe and perfectly balanced.

Thanks, @Dawn E. I paid $49 for the regular cab in NJ. Start there. Lovely stuff.

I’m not usually a cab fan but this one is hard to resist. Deep garnet color; lots of legs and a big fruity flavor. — 6 days ago

The Essentials 29 Estate Cabernet Franc 2014

My last 2014,
Vineyard 29 makes some great wine. But will benefit from 5-10 years obviously, but still worth opening early

Prior notes apply.
Strong showing. Layered, textured and nuanced. This will sail on for years to come. Maraschino cherries combine with maple syrup and espresso notes to complete what is an excellent presentation.
