Napa Valley Cabernet Franc 2016

Now we are talking! Getting close to half a hundred $ gets you a quality #napacab ; Titus has executed beautifully in this price range. Lovely dense cassis fruit, chocolate and coffee notes, bigger alcohol and less acid but delicious modern Napa style #cabernetsauvignon — 17 days ago

Le Roi

de Bordeaux Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

100% #cabernetsauvignon ; Surge of dark fruit aroma, not much earthy or cigar box notes so it evokes a New World style, but racy body and structure speak of classic #bordeaux. Good wine but would prefer more weight for a full Cab. #wsjwineclub — 2 months ago

Monte Antico

Toscana Sangiovese Blend 2014

Lighter-bodied, especially considering it’s a #sangiovese #merlot #cabernetsauvignon blend. Somewhat reserved cassis aroma; classic Tuscan flavors: earthy wild cherry, slight pepper yet more fruit-forward with chewy tannins. I’d like more depth and bracing acidity but hard to argue with the $9 price at Costco. ***2 days later and the wine has awakened, more plush Sangiovese cherry-spice aroma and the tart cherry acidity has come forward. Excellent #toscanaigt - very strong QPR.*** — 3 months ago

Robert Mondavi Winery

Private Selection California Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Ended up pleasantly surprised by this lower line #robertmondavi #cabernetsauvignon. When you first open it, it’s clumsy with overwrought oak, heavy fruit and the accompanying vanilla. I left it in the wine fridge and two days later, much improved. Some interesting woodsy and spiced black currant aromas came alive and there was some tartness to balance that big fruit. — a month ago

Rutherford Ranch Winery

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016


Very fine #cabernetsauvignon is suitable for aging. Very juicy and fresh with medium+ acidity and a lovely juicy and balsamic finish with sensations of bay leaf and thyme. #napacabs and reasonable for the price. — 2 months ago

Alma Tinta

Malbec Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Quite an interesting #malbec #cabernetsauvignon blend from #valledeguadalupe in Baja California Mexico. I’m not quite as enamored with it as other reviewers but a not-too-jammy fruit forward blend that has some acidity and food friendly. It was delicious with some roast duck breast. — 6 months ago


Estate Red Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2013

Medium purple hue, ruby rim variation. Medium / heavy tearing. Medium extraction. Moderate aromas of candied blackberry, strawberry rhubarb pie, eucalyptus, mint, cedar, oak, and allspice. Soft and velvety on the palate, more oak-forward with loads of baking spices: cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, and fresh black fruit and molasses. Medium tannins. A beauty from Walla Walla Valley with predominately Cabernet Sauvignon, but also Petit Verdot and Merlot. Vintage 2013. #thesonoffig #figgins #figginswine #wallawallaholla #washingtonstatewine #cabernetsauvignon #newworldcab — 22 days ago

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Purple hue with ruby rim variation. Noticeable extraction and moderate tearing. Candied black and red fruit on the nose; blackberry, raspberry, cassis; dried roses; potpourri; potting soil, molasses, and anise notes; cedar box and vanilla. Smooth, soft tannins on the palate. Dry. Palate is largely consistent with the nose, but definitely fruit-forward and noticeable new oak. Medium acidity with a slight spiciness. #teetertotter #napavalley #napavalleycab #cabernetsauvignon #faitmainwines #winelover #newworldwines #californiagirl #wineandfood
