Time for my Friday's Cabernet fix. Here is a nice one from Sonoma.

Dark ruby in color with a short purple rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, blueberries, wood, cloves, vanilla, spices, espresso, chocolates, metals, green vegetables, light bell pepper and earth.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, bell pepper, green vegetables, coffee, chocolates, light earth, tobacco, beef jerky and peppercorn.

Medium plus on the finish with firm tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a very nice Cabernet Sauvignon from Alexander Valley. Showing nice complexity and a great mouthfeel. Fruity and rich, with lots of bell pepper notes.

Still young and needs another few years in the bottle to mature properly. Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up and shows some tannins (60 minutes).

Fruit forward, tasty and good by itself or with food. Solid and dependable.

14.9% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

This is a great Cabernet Sauvignon from Alexander Valley. Fruit forward with black fruits and chocolate notes, earth, vegetables, bell pepper, spices and peppercorn.

Nose of sweet red candy that fades out with airtime.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.

Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up and shows some complexity and tannins.

After a few hours of airtime it is much earthier with lots of vegetable notes.

Would benefit from another few years in the bottle.

Excellent. Great taste with many flavours in there. Smooth and nice lingering after taste. Highly recommend.

Great potential but bit young. This is a nice cab with well balanced fruit punch but a bit of youth is shown through the pyrazine notes of the green bell pepper. I bet in 5 years it would be more approachable
