It’s time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a gorgeous one from Napa Valley.

Deep purple in color with a short purple rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, black currants, plums, cherries, tobacco, mocha, cedar, leather, vanilla, earth, licorice, spices, dark chocolates and black coffee.

Medium plus in body, smooth and elegant, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blueberries, plums, currants, cedar, leather, earth, vanilla, licorice, spices, chocolates, tobacco, mocha, coke and peppercorn.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a delicious Napa Cabernet. Showing nice complexity and a great mouthfeel. I really loved smelling on it for a long time. The tangy finish, makes it more interesting.

Still young, and needs another 5 to 10 years of bottle time to mature properly, but already very yummy.

Good right out of the bottle, but shows the tannins only after 3 hours of airtime, so please be patient.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

Aged for 2 years in 60% new French oak barrels.

14.6% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

$110.

Blackberry, black cherry, vanilla, plum, raspberry, licorice and oak. Great structure and soft tannins.
