Had this delicious Cabernet Sauvignon over a Zoom call with a friend from Washington.

This 6 year old is drinking very nicely now. Showing black fruits with chocolates, coffee, cola, cedar, spices, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, graphite, light earth and peppercorn.

Full bodied and elegant with medium acidity and long legs.

Good right out of the bottle and much better after 3 hours of airtime.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.

Delicious and will continue to age nicely in the next 5 to 10 years.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

$65.

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

Deep purple in color with a short purple rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, cooked cherries, black plums, vanilla, light cedar, chocolates, coffee, mocha, cola, light alcohol, tobacco, spices, pencil lead and peppercorn.

Full-bodied, bold and smooth, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black cherries, blueberries, wood, vanilla, spices, espresso, dark chocolates, cola, peppercorn, tobacco leaf and light graphite.

Medium plus in finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Well balanced with nice complexity and mouthfeel. Easy drinking and good all by itself.

Good right out of the bottle and better once it opens up. Needs a couple of hours to peak. Would continue to age nicely in the next 5 to 10 years.

This 6 year old is gentle and elegant, yet muscular.

I paired it with a cheese plate and fresh berries.
