It’s time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a nice one from Napa Valley.

Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.

Fruity nose of blueberries, cherries, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, spices, tobacco leaf, light alcohol, graphite, earth, leather, dark coffee and black pepper.

Full bodied, smooth and elegant, with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with plums black currants, stewed cherries, cedar, leather, earth, vanilla, licorice, light vegetables, pencil lead, peppercorn and dark chocolate.

Long finish with fine, yet firm, tannins and tangy cranberries.

This is a very tasty Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. Showing nice complexity and a great mouthfeel. Spicy and elegant.

Good by itself or with food. A nice sipping wine.

Still young and needs another 5 years in the bottle to mature properly. Needs a couple of hours to open up, so give it some time.

This has a good potential to get to 94+ points, but not right now. However it is already enjoyable even by itself.

If you like a big, yet restraint red, this one is for you.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

A blend of 99.35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 0.5% Petit Verdot and 0.15% Cabernet Franc. Aged for 25 months in 100% new French Oak barrels. A small production of only 103 cases.

14.8% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$150.
