#AgedWineTuesday

Dark ruby, almost Inky in color, with a short reddish rim. Not showing age at all.

On the nose blackberries, cherry pie, figs, raisins, tobacco, cedar, vanilla, licorice, eucalyptus, spices, chocolates and coffee.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity.

Dry and very fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, cooked cherries, cedar, tobacco, vanilla, raisins, dried fruits, chocolates, mocha, coke, earth, herbs and peppercorn.

Long finish with round tannins and tangy cherries.

This 12 year Napa Cabernet is delicious now. Showing good structure with nice complexity and mouthfeel.

Fruit forward, rich and extracted. In your face kind of wine, which I liked. Peaking now.

Needs a couple of hours to open up properly and show the tannins.

Robert Parker 90 points.

Thank you Scott for sharing this with me.

Good by itself or with food. Will pair nicely with a big piece of steak.

14.6% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

$180.
