#AgedWineTuesday

Dark ruby, almost inky in color, with a short brick rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, black currants, cooked plums, cherry pie, spices, cedar, vanilla, leather, light earth, pencil lead, peppercorn, coffee, mocha and tobacco leaf.

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

Dry and very fruity on the palate with blackberries, cooked cherries, cedar, licorice, vanilla, leather, black currants, sweet chocolates, coffee, cola, peppercorn and spices.

Long spicy finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley (To Kalon Vineyard). Showing great complexity with a great mouthfeel.

Rich, extracted and opulent. Fruit-forward and elegant. A delicious wine. Spicy with a teeth staining color.

This 15 year old from the great 2007 vintage is just beautiful now. Has a lot of years in it still, and will continue to age nicely in the 15 years.

Delicious right out of the bottle, and even better after 3 hours of airtime.

Good by itself as a sipping wine. I just loved it.

16% (!) alcohol by volume.

98 points.

$130.

Drinking really well. Another 5 years would be easy for this juice. One hour decant.

Beautiful ... NOT past it's prime ... Perfect NOW. Perfectly balanced and a true testament to the To Kalon Vineyard. Memorable and remarkable.

A powerhouse, the definition of opulent. Ripe black fruit, currant/cassis, black plum skin, lavender, vanilla bean, spice box. Powerful, mouth filling plum, deep, rich and complex, long finish.

Enjoyed 2006 Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve with beef tenderloin and classic Roquefort salad. Perfect pairing - soft tannins; classic Napa nose; deep fruit. Also had 2007 Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvignon to compare the two. 2007 still has a few years in the bottle. We have 2008, 2009, and 2010 and are excited about tasting them all. Enjoy!
