It is time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here's a nicely aged 14 year old from Napa Valley.

Dark purple in color with a short purplish rim.

Great nose of blueberries, blackcurrants, plums, black cherries, wood, vanilla, earth, forest floor, river rocks, leather, pencil lead, chocolates, vinaigrette, light alcohol, spices, peppercorn and black tea.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and long legs, soft and graceful.

Dry on the palate with blueberries, cherries, raspberries, leather, smoke, chocolates, coffee, pencil lead, earth, vegetables, spices, bitter herbs, wet leaves, wood, vanilla, cloves, vinaigrette and dark coffee.

Medium plus on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a great aged Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Fruity and balanced with earth notes and chocolates.

Showing great complexity with a nice mouthfeel. Soft and elegant. Reminds me of an aged Left Bank Bordeaux a little.

I really enjoyed smelling on it for a long time. A good sipping wine too, Interesting and one to talk with friends about.

This was a nice surprise. I did not think this inexpensive Cabernet would age so nicely.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with light appetizers and a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

Thank you Wendy for sharing this with me.

14.5% alcohol by volume.
