A few days late in posting the Wednesday Wine Committee wines. Standard format with 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine. All served blind.

This is full blown fruit forward Napa Cab. It just oozes of blackberries, blueberries, mixed berry pie and Mexican vanilla on the nose with juicy and rich tannins. Liqueur and velvet like. Sweet smoke too. Didn’t pick up much savory or secondary notes here. I guessed young vintage, high ABV (15.5%!) Napa Cab.

Smooth textured blackberry, black cherry, and cassis, blend perfectly with vanilla, cloves, and cedar. Comfortable texture and super long finish. An amazingly good wine with many years ahead of it.

Whoa! Huge body, juicy, chewy, spice, well balanced, and vanilla finish. Great Napa cab.

Beautiful nose of black and blue fruit. Elegant mouth feel with very sleek tannins. Great tastes of blueberries, coffee, caramel and a slight hint of black pepper on the palate. Very nicely integrated wine with lots of fruit, balanced acidity and solid tannins. A really nice wine to celebrate Valentine's Day with my soul mate Lisa.
