Reliquus St Helena Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Reliquus 2019 cab St Helena Napa (grace family).
This one shines bright with red cherry and raspberry notes leading a nose of blueberry and cassis as strawberry peeks through. The palate is silky and refined despite grainy tannins which amplify versus detract. Depth and intensity that is a dichotomy considering the fruited nose. Elegant, sinewy and serpentine. Scrumptious.

Educated Guess Napa County Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Interesting enterprise to taste a 12 year old #napa #cabernetsauvignon in the value segment of the market likely around $15 - $20 at release. Cork was well soaked and wine tastes of age, but not tired at all. In fact after a day in the fridge it seems to have gained some vim. Typical bramble fruit set on top of stewed plums. Palate is a bit earthier, less fruit-forward - plenty of acidity, chocolate and coffee notes mid-palate and still sturdy tannins on the finish. It must have been stored well at the retailer. — 7 months ago

Robert Mondavi Winery

The Estates Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

It’s great to see the historic and influential Robert Mondavi Winery return to excellence. Napa Bordeaux blend with 85% #cabernetsauvignon 6% #cabernetfranc 6% #petitverdot 2% #malbec 1% #merlot. This wine shines with generous decanting. Elegant, memorable ripe bramble fruit and black plum, sweet baking spices on the nose. Juicy tartness underlays a bold wave of fruit on the palate with silken tannins on the finish. I definitely plan on laying down my other bottle for at least half a decade. #oakville — 4 months ago

Fontecanese Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Jacobo Biondi Santi Fontecanese.
Floral aromas verge on lavender and violet, delicate cherry panna cotta, with dried red and ripe dark cherries. Clean and lithe. Cherries continue on the palate with a pliable, silky and pleasant tarragon laced tannic completeness. Dried raspberry, blackberry and hints of chocolate. Gorgeous wine

Parador Cellars

Hossfeld Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Perfectly aged #napavalley #cabernetsauvignon - The potential QPR stood out to me here on a wine list in downtown Napa. Bramble fruit balanced against softly earthy nose. Symmetrical acidity and fruit continues on palate, dreamy tannins on the finish. Excellent pairing with confit duck leg. — 4 months ago

Cantine Bonacchi

Badesco Toscano Sangiovese Blend 2018

Aroma speaks to that distinct #toscana wild-cherry, earthy-forest floor thing with a hint of spice. Palate presents with slightly syrupy sweet & sour cherry fruit, sweet tobacco and a spicy finish. 60% #sangiovese 20% #merlot 20% #cabernetsauvignon - nicely balanced, quaffable Super Tuscan blend. — 8 months ago

Santa Carolina

Reserva Carolina Colchagua Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Savory-style #colchaguavalley #cabernetsauvignon which reminds me of some quality Argentine Malbecs. Fascinating rubber, tar, menthol, varnish notes initially, backfilled by subtle bramble fruit notes as it opens up. Medium plus palate, good acidity, menthol, some dried herb and spicy notes on finish with pretty good length. Soft tannins on this elegant-style restrained Cab clocking at 13.5% ABV. Beguiling QPR for ~$8 at #costco and at that price great dinner-pairing wine for a weekday. Complemented nicely paired with an Impossible plant-based burger. — 10 months ago
