Silver Oak

Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

I can’t hardly believe my luck - found this at a local grill house bar restaurant in MD for $85 on their cellar clearance wine menu. Truthfully I hadn’t had this nice of a #napacabernet in quite some time. Bold fruit on the nose but some nice earth, acidity and elegance on the finish with fine tannins. Unmistakably Napa and delicious. Beautiful pairing for upscale meatloaf. — 3 months ago

Beringer Vineyards

Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Solid Attempt at Napa Cab by Beringer with Knights Valley fruit. A bit jammy for my liking but very nice richness and depth. Great packaging and cellar-worthy! #beringer #napa #napavalley #napacabernet #napacab #knightsvalley — 5 years ago

Beaulieu Vineyard

BV Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Wilfred Wong
9.0

A cabernet that we can count on has produced a solid 2012 effort! Dark ruby color, almost brooding; ripe currants and dust in the aromas, pretty much what I had expected, fine depth and range of elements; medium bodied, pert and piquant on the palate, well integrated tannins; dry, nice acidity, well balanced; ripe currants and berries in the flavors, with a bit of oak, very good concentration; ripe berries and sweet oak in the flavors, nicely melded; medium finish, sweet tannins in the aftertaste. This is a trealy fine BV Rutherford and ranks amongst the winery's best. (Tasted: January 5, 2015, San Francisco, CA) (Best Served: 2014-2019) [Sourcing: 80% of the grapes are from vineyard blocks in BV Ranches No. 1, No. 2 and No. 10; 95% Rutherford AVA and 5% Napa AVA] [Composition: 97% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Malbec] [Winemaking Highlights: Barrel Aging 15 months (50% French oak, 35% American oak, 15% Hungarian oak (25% new barrels)] [Technical: 14.3% alcohol, 5.9g/L acidity, 3.70 pH] [Jeffrey Stambor, Winemaker] #cabernetsauvignon #napacabernet #beaulieuvineyard #redwines #napavalley — 5 years 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

Eponymous

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Easy to identify this as a NAPA Cab, but disappointingly soft....and I don't mean soft in the milk chocolate and buttery oak sense, I mean almost sweet cherry and soft tannins. The mouthfeel was creamy and I liked that, but there was never the tannin/oak assault that the big reds should deliver. #eponymous #napa #napavalley #napacabernet #napacab — 5 years ago

Wow! Randy Lewis you old dawg! I remember when you peddled this stuff to me in Houston at Pappas Bros Steakhouse. It is still a beast, and very delicious. Hope you are well. #napa #napacabernet — 5 years ago

Not as #special as I was hoping for... lacks nuances - maybe the next bottle will thrill me more #caymusspecialselection #napacabernet — 4 years ago

Joel Gott Wines

Gott 11 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Another fruit bomb from Napa. I'm guessing this one may mellow out over the next 3-5 years. Big fruit with soft blueberry acidity. Not boozy enough but a classic Napa mouthfeel of vanilla cream and good oak. #napa #napavalley #napacabernet #napacab #joelgott — 5 years ago

Boich Family Cellar

Beckstoffer Georges III Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Dark cherry, red currant, vanilla and sweet spices. Velvet tannins for a 2012. The finish is long and lingering. This wine is a great example of the grapes coming from the incredible Beckstoffer vineyards. #greatwine #beckstoffer, #boichfamilycellar #wine #sommelier #vino #napa #napacabernet #cabernetsauvignon — 5 years ago
