It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a gorgeous one.

This 6 year old Napa Cabernet is drinking very nicely now. Rich and extracted. Spicy with a great mouthfeel.

Dry and very fruity on the palate with medium acidity and long legs.

Smooth and elegant and feels prestigious. Full bodied and bold.

Showing black fruits with cedar, vanilla, leather, earth, chocolates, tobacco, coffee, Mediterranean spices, light vegetables and fresh flower stems.

Showing great complexity on the nose and palate with a gorgeous nose. Delicious.

Rich, yet elegant and so tasty.

Would be very nice to pair it with a big piece of steak. I paired it with Caciocavallo cheese. Delish.

A blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% Malbec. Aged for 27 months in French Oak barrels. A small production of only 1,580 bottles.

14.1% alcohol by volume.

94 points.

$120.

We have a new president! Time for a Celebratory wine 🍷

Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

Fruity nose with cedar, blackberries, vanilla, licorice, black plums, black currants, raisins, figs, chocolates, cola, earth, coffee, spices, violets and black pepper.

Full bodied, elegant and smooth, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, cedar, vanilla, spices, espresso, cola, dark chocolates, peppercorn, tobacco and light herbs.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a delicious Bordeaux blend from Napa Valley. Showing nice complexity with a great mouthfeel.

Easy drinking and elegant. Nicely balanced, fruit forward and spicy.

Good right out of the bottle and better with some air time (90 minutes).

This 5 year old is still young, and will age nicely in the next 10 years.
Nice to see a Napa Cabernet that is not too high in alcohol.

Good by itself or with food. A great sipping wine by the porch, but will be great with a piece of steak too.

A blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% Malbec. Aged for 27 months in French Oak barrels (50% new). A very small production of only 1,600 bottles.
