Cornerstone Cellars

Stepping Stone Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Pine-lined pond and glass factory notes intermingle with spearmint, red plum, and blackberry-grape that injects itself into the forest and emerges black currant, while pulling all the aforementioned behind her. Natural and clean aromatics here with cinnamon the only oak influence. Smooth but dense opening, bringing dark chocolate, black Darjeeling, intense graphite behind cassis, mint-pencil, vanilla infused tobacco, burnt raisin, walnut, and black sesame. Liquid, astral beauty in a bottle. Magnificent. #cornerstonecellars #napavalley2012 #Napa #wine #cab #cabernetsauvignon #cabsauv4life #cawine #2012vintage — 15 days ago

This is an old vintage. Yet the #wine which is a well made #redblend of #tempranilloblend #syrah #cabernetsauvignon from #cariñena is ageing well. — 4 months ago

Egelhoff

Walton Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Began as black olives for miles but betrayed its fruit roots quickly enough, with baked black cherry, and a black plum mash; black currant and gingerbread-mocha notes sparkling on its grainy veneer. Torn violet petals. Lots of sediment, or pigmented tartaric crystals. Super elegant and fleshy mouthfeel is perhaps its most compelling nuance. Black currant, soft leather, smoke, a scribble of pencil, snuffed wick, teak, and black tea. Bittersweet chocolate remains like a cloud, suspended while most aspects fade. Leather friction.

Belle Roche

Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Isn’t it fascinating how some wines don’t seem to oxidize much after opening even after several days? This is one of those but it does mean you should decant for at least an hour, as it says on the label. Fruit-forward almost California style #cabernetsauvignon IGP with subtle spicy character, chocolate notes offset by acidity and soft, nicely integrated tannins. One of my everyday wine favorites from France. — 2 months ago

La Dame de Malescot

Margaux Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

Vintage 2011 / dark colour, beautiful smell, complex with vanilla, cedar, milkchocolate, laurel, stewed red fruit, refined taste with narrow spine. Still tannic but good with food after aeration. Partnered it with Uzbek Plov made from basmati rice, lambsmeat, spices and carrots. #margaux #Cabernetsauvignon #merlot #cabernetfranc — 3 months ago

Domaine Coudoulet

Vin de Pays d'Oc Syrah 2017

Vintage 2017 / Néw cuvee from Bordeaux blend #cabernetsauvignon #merlot #petitverdot with IGP #paysdoc while domaine Coudoulet is in Minervois. Six months barrel aging is reflected in a wine with strong cassis smell and spicyness. Character in taste. I served the wine straight from the fridge, the fruit is extra accentuated. Very good effort. — 4 months ago

How interesting! "New" and "Bordeaux" aren't often mentioned in the same sentence unless oak is involved!

Château Musar

Bekaa Valley Red Blend 2006

Vintage 2006 - always special to taste Musar. Made from the three C’s #cinsault #carignan #cabernetsauvignon Mature smell with richness, a lot of complexity, the wine is in smell and taste warm as well as multi- layered. Plums also. Nice to taste Musar again. #lebanonwine — 5 months ago

Butterfield Station

Firebaugh's Ferry Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

I think this #cabernetsauvignon actually punches above its weight. It’s a bit thin almost like heavy Pinot, but nice spice and pretty quaffable. Not bad for a cheap wine served at a work conference happy hour. — 2 months 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 — 2 months ago

You should try a bottle of 2011 this year. Definitely young, but showing such nice fruit and complexity. Stuff is outstanding.
