It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix . This week it's a fabulous one from
Napa Valley.

Dark ruby in color with a short purple rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, sweet cherries, black currants, vanilla, licorice, cedar, light earth, leather, coke, tobacco leaf, vinaigrette, chocolates, coffee, peppercorn, mocha and pencil lead.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and extremely fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, sweet cherries, raisins, vanilla, cedar, licorice, cloves, cola, light vegetables, herbs, chocolates, earth and peppercorn.

Long finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This Napa Cabernet is very enjoyable. Good by itself or with food. A good sipping wine too. Fruit forward with nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.

Needs a couple of hours to open up properly. Will be better in 5 to 10 years as more complexity will be introduced.

Delicious and yummy.

15.3% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

$45.

If you love big Napa cabs, here’s your jam. It has all the big flavors and tannin you want. I try to rate wines based on their quality, hence the score. However this is not my personal favorite style.

Has tannin and tons of dark jammy fruit. I’d like more acidity. Fine, but not to my taste.

Full body, moderate tannins, somewhat dry. Plums and black cherries on palate. Unremarkable finish. Good, not great.

Still one of my favorite Cabernets. Love the Berry and Dark Cherry flavors.

Red fruit & wet smoke. Thinner bodied than I like in a Cab and not nearly as lush as I’d hoped or remembered, but not a bad go-to in a pinch.
