Time for my #FridayCabernetfix. This week it's a wonderful Cabernet based blend from Napa Valley.

Dark ruby in color with a short purple rim.

Fruity nose with blackberries, black cherries, vanilla, licorice, cedar, spices, earth, cloves, pencil lead, leather, chocolates, dark coffee, alcohol, spices and peppercorn.

Full-bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate and very fruity with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, earth, spices, chocolates, tobacco, mocha, coke and peppercorn.

Long finish with firm tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is another very nice red blend from Napa Valley. Well balanced with a great mouthfeel. Showing nice complexity, but still young.

Needs an hour to open up properly and show some tannins, however it is good right out of the bottle.

This five-year-old is drinking nicely now and will get better in the next couple of years.

I just love these Cabernet Sauvignon based Bordeaux Blends from Napa Valley.

Robert Parker 90 points. Wine Enthusiasts 91 points.

A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, 5% Malbec and 3% Cabernet Franc. Aged separately for 21 months in small oak barrels.

14.8% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$65.
