This Napa Cabernet is very enjoyable. Still young and needs another few years in the bottle to mature properly.

Full bodied and smooth with black fruits and chocolate notes, vanilla, cedar, leather, spices, earth, light vegetables, pencil lead and peppercorn.

Great nose with wild flowers.

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

Needs 2 hours to open up properly and show the tannins.

Showing nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.

A blend of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon 3% Petit verdot, 3% Malbec and 1% Cabernet Franc. Aged for 26 months in French Oak barrels.

14.8% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

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.
