#AgedWineTuesday

Dark ruby in color with a short purple rim.

Great nose of black currants, plums, cooked cherries, blackberries, cedar, licorice, chocolates, light vanilla, tobacco, coffee and peppercorn.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and smooth.

Dry on the palate with black currants, chocolates, cherries, cedar, vanilla, spices, espresso, cola, light herbs, earth, tobacco and peppercorn.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a delicious Bordeaux blend from Napa Valley.

Showing great complexity, tasty and interesting. A good wine to share with friends and talk about.

Delicious right now and has more in it to last at least 5 more years.

Thank you John for sharing this with me.

I had it blind and called a 2005 Napa Cabernet based Bordeaux blend. This 27 year old feels so much younger.

This is from a great vintage in Napa and it is showing so. Lasted over 3 hours. Fabulous and delicious.

A blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot, 4% Malbec and 3% Petit Verdot. Aged in French oak barrels for 22 months.

14.1% alcohol by volume.

94 points.

$200.

Black cherry nose with a alcohol smell. Deep plum with cherry and cedar notes. Opened nicely and seems like it would hold quite a long time.

This is nicely balanced (the 15.2 abv really is surprising as it doesn’t taste overly ripe or alcoholic). More red fruit than the favia we had by its side. I’d say this is a good time to drink this.
