It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix
. This week it's a nice one from California.

Dark ruby in color with a short
reddish rim.

Nice nose of blueberries, spices, cedar, vanilla, licorice, sweet cherries, dark chocolates, coffee, earth, peppercorn and leather.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with plums, black currants, cherries, sweet raspberries, coffee, oak, earth, vegetables, graphite, vinaigrette, spices, herbs and black pepper.

Long finish with soft tannins and tangy pomegranates.

This is a very nice Cabernet Sauvignon based Bordeaux blend from California. Showing nice complexity with a Soft and elegant mouthfeel. Tangy and interesting.

Needs an hour to open up properly and remove some of the acidity.

Showing a beautiful nose. I loved to smell on it for a long time. Still young and needs another few years in the bottle to mature properly.

I paired it with cheeses and light appetizers.

A blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Malbec. Aged for 29 months in French oak barrels.

13.8% alcohol by volume.

89 points.
