#cabernetday

Volker Eisele Family Estate

Terzetto Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2007

Today is #cabernetday so I'll have to wait with my #MerlotThursday. A nice Napa Merlot /Cabernet blend will fit in with the celebration.

Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim. Not showing much age.

Nice nose of black currants, blackberries, wood, vanilla, chocolates, vinaigrette, graphite, leather, earth, wet leaves, vegetables, dark coffee, herbs, tobacco leaf and black pepper.

Full bodied and bold with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with cherries, sweet raspberries, currants, cedar, earth, vanilla, licorice, spices, chocolates, tobacco, vegetables, vinaigrette, bitter herbs and peppercorn.

Long finish with round tannins and tangy cranberries.

This Bordeaux blend from Napa Valley is interesting and tasty. Showing great complexity and mouthfeel.

This 12 year old is good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up and shows some tannins (90 minutes).

Reminds me of a 20 year old Right Bank Bordeaux.

Wine Enthusiasts 90 points.

The high alcohol is very nicely integrated by now, so watch out.

Thank you Wendy for sharing this with me.

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Organic.

14.7% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$75 (current vintage).

Robert Mondavi Winery

Reserve 50 Anniversary To Kalon Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Another young one. Chocolate brownie and s’mores, with a coffee marshmallow. Rich vanilla bean creeps in, and warm plum jam that mysteriouslypowders atop pumpkin bread full of the usual spices aromatically. Grape-y, with grainy tannins, first skin of a dark red apple, red incense, cherry skins, lipstick with crispy beef and black soils. The final notes boast oak and blackberry, with cinnamon stick. The middle and finish give you an idea of the depth and breadth that the first aromas belie. #ToKalon #mondavi #robertmondavi #Napa #napavalley2013 #singlevineyard #Oakville #reserve #cabernetday #californiacab #cab — a year ago

Dunn Vineyards

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Red, resinous currant with a licorice twist. Warm blackberry, dark toast, vanilla, cedar and sweet tabac seamlessly tailored, even at such a young age. Fresh gingerbread oven, too. Silk suit of tannins; loose stitching. Wound tightly showing sinewy potential and a Christmas cactus of sutured fruits bursting at the seams with liquid graphite and black currant reduction with fresh cassis and olive berry. Violets, treacle and black tea. Onyx train of a witch bride all the way down Howell mountain! #Dunn #DunnVineyards #napacab #napacabernet #Napa #howellmountain #howell #howellmtn #mountainwine #cabernetacademy #cabernetday #cabernetsauvignon #californiaclassic — a year ago

Block Twenty One Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Toasty almond, toasted cocoanut, red cedar, blackberry, grilled beef, roses and anemones, arabica, violets, bacon fat, and black cherry juice with a bready aroma contextually. Cassis in a leather-lined cedar. Lively raspberry, tobacco, tar, and sweet licorice in a blackberry reduction. #Trione #sonomawine #block21 #singlevineyard #cabernetday #cabernertsauvignon #cab #sonoma #CA #sonomacounty — 2 years ago
