It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a delicious one from Napa Valley.

Dark ruby in color with a wide purplish/ reddish rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, blackcurrants, cedar, cooked cherries, spices, light vanilla, chocolates, tobacco, light herbs, graphite, light alcohol and peppercorn.

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

Dry on the palate with blueberries, plums, cherries, currants, earth, cedar, chocolates, spices, tobacco leaf, dark coffee and peppercorn.

Long finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Showing nice complexity, although still young, with a smooth mouthfeel.

Needs a couple of hours to open up properly, and show the tannins and the complexity. I used the Zencore for a few minutes.

I've had the 2016 a year ago, which was better. Will continue to age nicely in the next 7 to 10 years.

A delicious sipping wine to have all by itself or with food like barbecue meats.

Fruit-forward, elegant and rich.

A small production of only 40 barrels.

14.2% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$65.
