Here is my Friday's Cabernet fix.

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Gorgeous fruity nose of blackberries, blueberries, cherries, licorice, figs, cloves, earth, mint, oak, vanilla, leather, eucalyptus, spices, chocolates, tobacco, beef jerky and peppercorn.

Full bodied with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, earth, leather, beef jerky, vegetables and peppercorn.

Long finish with smooth tannins and black pepper.

A Great Napa Cabernet. Very typical and enjoyable by itself or with food. Nicely balanced and complex, with nice acidity to make it interesting.

Although it is very pleasant now, it is still young, and would be much better in 2 to 5 years.

Nicely paired with a nice piece of fillet mingon and grilled vegetables. This one is just delicious.

14.2% alcohol by volume.

Deep Ruby with aromas of dark fruits and spice. On the palate blackberry, plum and dark cherry with complex spice. Full-body wine showed balanced acidity and approachable tannins with tobacco, cacao and espresso noted on the lingering finish. More time will benefit. Good value.

This gorgeous blend of several red grapes, primarily Cabernet, is at or near the top of my list of all time favorites. It’s big, bold, elegant, gripping, complex, structured, and classy. Very underpriced at $37.

Delicious. Softer tannins for a cab. Wasn't expecting that.

Cherry overload on the nose and palette. Nice mouthfeel and soft texture. As my bud @Martin G Rivard would say “winner, winner, chicken dinner.” 🙂
