Very in your face but texturally beautiful and loads of ripe fruit with a velvety smooth finish. Still developing but excellent purity and depth.

Beautiful rich nose, tight and young but you can feel the pedigree. Mocha, tobacco leaf, vanilla. Give it 3 years.

Time for my Friday's Cabernet fix...

Inky in color with a short purple rim.

Strong nose of blackberries, plums, cherries, black currants, cedar, leather, licorice, vanilla, vegetables, chocolates, tobacco, herbs, spices, peppercorn, bell pepper and earth.

Full bodied, bold, rich and extracted with medium acidity and long long legs.

Dry and extremely fruity on the palate with blackberries, plums, black currants, cooked cherries, cedar, leather, chocolates, tobacco, vanilla, licorice, earth, coffee, spices, pencil lead and peppercorn.

Long finish with firm, round tannins and spices.

This Napa Cabernet is awesome (and expensive). Nicely balanced and complex with lots of chocolate and coffee flavors.

Could use a few more years in the bottle to mature properly, but drinking extremely well now.

Good all by itself or with food, like BBQ Meats. I paired it with hard cheeses and appetizers.

I decanted it for 3 hours, but it was nice enough right out of the bottle.

Drank from a Magnum. Delightful and delicious.

14.7% alcohol by volume.
