Nice length on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cranberries.

It’s time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here's a great Napa Cabernet.

Ruby in color with a wide reddish rim.

Pronounced nose of red cherries, vanilla, blueberries, light oak, dust, tobacco, light vegetables, graphites, alcohol, spices, herbs, leather, earth and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with cherries, sweet raspberries, tobacco, cloves, vanilla, wood, earth, leather, coke, tobacco leaf, bitter vegetables, herbs and black pepper.

Medium on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a very nice Cabernet based Bordeaux blend. Showing nice complexity and a soft mouthfeel. A wine that keeps changing as it opens up, which is always enjoyable.

Feels more like a new world bold Pinot Noir. Very unique.

Good by itself or with food. Still young and needs another 5 years to mature. Has good potential to be a 92+ point wine.

Needs 90 minutes to open up properly and show some tannins. After 2.5 hours, it changes again, and the new world Cabernet shows up. Definitely still young. I've had the 2013 not too long ago and loved it.

I paired it with Brie cheese and roasted almonds.

It’s time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a gorgeous Cabernet from Napa Valley.

Deep ink in color with a short Ruby rim.

A gorgeous nose of blueberries, currants, cherries, wild strawberries, dried figs, cedar, vanilla, dark coffee, light vegetables, tobacco leaf, earth, chocolates, eucalyptus, black pepper and Mediterranean spices.

Full bodied and gentle with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black cherries, sweet spice, vanilla, licorice, tobacco, chocolates, coffee, mocha, earth, graphite, leather, coke and peppercorn.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a wonderful example of a Napa Cabernet. Showing great complexity with a wonderful nose and a great, smooth and gentle mouthfeel. Very elegant.


Still not showing its 6 year old age and could age very nicely in the next 15 years.

Good right out of the bottle and much better after an hour, when all these flavors open up on the nose and palate.

By now, the alcohol is well integrated alcohol, although it is very high.

Good by itself or with food and a great sipping wine to have with friends and talk about.

15.2% alcohol by volume.

94 points.

Dark ruby in color with a short purplish rim.

Fruity nose with blackberries, blueberries, oak, licorice, vanilla, mint, vegetables, dust, chocolates, earth and peppercorn.

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

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, sweet raspberries, figs, vanilla, licorice, oak, earth, light vegetables, pencil lead, dark chocolates, coke and peppercorn.

Long finish with soft tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a very enjoyable Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Well balanced with nice complexity and a nice mouthfeel.

Bold and rich, yet elegant. Smooth with a tangy ending that makes it interesting.

Good right out of the bottle, and better as it opens up and shows some tannins. After 90 minutes of airtime, vegetables come in on the nose, but not much on the palate.

Still young, and needs a few years in the bottle to mature. Good by itself as a sipping wine.

Soft and yummy.
