Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here's a nice one from Sonoma County.

Deep ruby in color with a nice reddish rim.

Fruity nose with blueberries, black currants, cherries, wood, vanilla, spices, licorice, black pepper, coffee and cloves.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with plums, cherries, blueberries, wood, cloves, earth, coffee, light cola, graphite, spices, bitter herbs and peppercorn.

Medium plus on the finish with soft tannins, spices and tangy raspberries.

This is a very enjoyable Cabernet Sauvignon from Dry Creek Valley. Showing mild complexity, at this stage, with a nice mouthfeel.

Nicely balanced, although still young. Would be better in the next 5 to 10 years, as It gets more complexity. The tangy and spicy finish, makes it interesting.


This Californian Bordeaux blend is more subdued than the ones that are being made today. Less in your face kind of wine. Old School California Cabernet 😊

Good by itself or with food, and needs a couple of hours to open up properly.

I paired it with cheeses and crackers. It was very nice with the aged English Cheddar cheese.

A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot. A small production of only 120 cases.

13.7% alcohol by volume.

Delicious and yummy.

Earthy and spicy with lots of fruits. Already showing nice complexity, and beginning to show age on the palate.

Needs 3 hours to open up properly and show the big tannins, so be patient and don't drink it right out of the bottle.

Great, seductive, earthy nose and palate with black and blue fruits, wood, forest floor, tobacco leaf, spices, black tea and peppercorn.

Medium plus in finish with firm tannins and tangy cranberries.

This 5th growth still needs another 5 to 10 years of bottle time, as it is not peaking yet, but already gorgeous.

Needs 4 hours in a decanter to open up properly and show complexity. Tasty, interesting and approachable.

This 9 year old Cabernet based Bordeaux is drinking very nicely now. Well balanced with nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.

This is from a great vintage, and it is showing. Good right out of the bottle, and better as it opens up. Tannins come in after 30 minutes of airtime.

Still has a lot in it, and will age nicely in the next 10 years.

Thank you Steve and Alex for sharing this beauty with me.

I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers, but it is great to drink all by itself too.
