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

Dark purple in color with a purplish rim.

Fruity nose of black plums, black currants, coffee, oak, cedar, leather, tobacco, vanilla, licorice, spices, dark chocolates, peppercorn and pencil lead.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, cedar, vanilla, spices, tobacco leaf, espresso, cola, light vegetables, pencil lead and peppercorn.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cranberries.

This Napa Cabernet is very enjoyable by itself or with food. Showing nice complexity and a great mouthfeel. Spicy and rich.

Needs a couple of hours to open up and show the tannins, but tasty right out of the bottle.

Robert Parker 91 points. Wine Enthusiasts 87 Points.

This 5 year old is drinking very nicely now and will get better in the next 5 years.

I sipped on it all by itself. Delicious.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$50.

Deep ruby, with pronounced aromas of cassis, violet, blackberry - this is classic Napa Cab. Ripe tannins, good acidity, great length and very satisfying

Very nice cab for my 42nd birthday. Would drink again with a special meal but not a top favorite.
