It’s time for my #FridayCabernetfix, and it's my 4,500th review on Vivino. Time to celebrate with a gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon.

Beautiful nose of blackberries, black plums, cooked cherries, cedar, leather, earth, vanilla, licorice, spices, chocolates, tobacco, mocha and black pepper.

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

Dry and extremely fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, sweet cherries, raisins, figs, vanilla, cedar, licorice, cola, chocolates, mocha, dark coffee, light tobacco, vegetables, pencil lead and peppercorn.

Long finish with firm tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Very fruity with nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle, but much better after 2 hours of airtime.

This 7 year old from the 2012 vintage, is very fruity, rich, extracted and delicious. Will be even better in 5 years. A great sipping wine.

Wine Enthusiasts 91 points.

Good by itself or with food. Would pair very well with a big piece of steak on the grill.

14.8% alcohol by volume.

95 points.

$90.

Last bottle of the evening. In a nice window but I'm not sure I will seek it out at $70.

Pungent purple cherries and blossoms, minted blackberry wrapped in a virtual banana leaf of greenness at this point. More to come.

Not bad. Pops had this in his stash. Seems like something you could drink with anything.

Deep Ruby coloration. On the nose, dark cherry and berry, anise and tobacco. On the palate, cherry, plum, and a very long finish of oak and vanilla.
