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.

Dark fruit is very pronounced. Tannins present but softer than expected. Nice finish. Smoke and vanillin from barrel well integrated. Going great with meatloaf dinner! 😋 #napacabs #cab — 4 years ago

Lucian

Cabernet Sauvignon

Initial mussel in cherry tomato and plum sauce with rosemary toned down to reflect dried boysenberry and blackberry with ripe, black currant, morel, and soft lead. Full-bodied with silken texture that boasts licorice, blackberry, dark tobacco, cedar, and smoke. Nice wine in every way. #Lucian #napacabs #Napa #cab #2013 — 2 years ago

Beaulieu Vineyard

BV Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 1995

Not dead, but the old cinnamon-cherry plum tart nose turns a slight rot of tropical compost and black banana pudding. Cedar-smoked cranberry sauce, dusty grape skins and wet clove. Finishes muddy with a little tar. Past it's time by a tiny margin. #BV #rutherford #napacabbootlickers #napacabs — 3 years ago
