It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here's a beautiful Cabernet.

Inky in color with a purplish/ reddish rim.

Fruity nose with blueberries, black currants, black cherries, cedar, light vanilla, tobacco, potpourri notes, chocolates, spices, light earth, wild flowers, licorice and black pepper.

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

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black cherries, oak, chocolates, tobacco, licorice, light vanilla, earth, light herbs, spices, coffee, light cola, graphite and black pepper.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a very tasty Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. A very nice sipping wine.

Still young, but already drinking very elegantly, with nice complexity and mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle and better with airtime. I gave it two and a half hours, but that might not have been enough. Nevertheless, it is delicious now and good by itself or with food. As it opens up, it shows a gorgeous nose.

Would be nice to revisit it in 5 years, and will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.

I had the 2014 last year, and it is showing nice consistency. A good quality wine with good potential to become even better.

This Single Vineyard from this great vintage is rich, elegant, soft and spicy. Just Delicious.

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Aged for 20 months in French oak barrels (75% new). A small production of 375 cases.

14.7% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

$110.

Expressive nose with herbal green capsicum aromas typical of a cooler climate #cabernetsauvignon there is a freshness to this 2015 vintage with good tension
