This 2010 Memento Mori Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa is Awesome! This is the inaugural vintage with fruit from Beckstoffer and George III. Big but polished with massive ripe fruit and mouth watering acidity. Bravo Sam Kaplan!

Remember life. Because; Death. Thank you for all your wine making brilliance my friend, @thesamkaplan for this luscious elixir in the form of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. We drank up with delight as we paired with a hearty carnivorous meal at Slate Restaurant Orlando. We lost ourselves in the depth of color and the over ripe fruit on the nose rolled elegantly over the palette as we chewed on the texture and chased the smooth finish with yet another sip. Cheers!!! Encore si'l vous plait!

Brought by Adriel and THANK YOU for that. Just beautiful. Such purity. The ripeness of Napa without being too rich. Nice acidity. Impeccably balanced.

Have no idea where this picture came from- not mine.
However the Momento Mori cab was quite good
