Moulis en Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

Dark rubi robe, nose of blackcurrant, cedar, tobacco and a hint of asian spices. Pronounced Cabernet notes on a medium bodied and elegant wine. Good length and complexity, good now but certainly better in a few years. We like this wine very much and 12 is an excellent year. — 7 days ago

Monte Bello Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2002

45 min decant(decent chunky/fine sediment). A remarkable medium garnet color with bricking. On the nose: beautiful perfumed notes burst from the glass with sour cherry, mint, dusty earth, currants, wet cedar, green bell pepper....could sniff all night! Taste: soft and round, smooth, elegant wine with raspberry, cedar, currants, musky earth, and a nice dark chocolate cherry finish. YUM! A wine that has hit its stride over the past few years with time to go. — 11 days ago

What a Thanksgiving treat! Lush red fruit with hints of slate and tobacco. Long lingering mid pallet aftertaste. Deep red color. Goes good with a good Cuban cigar. Held up to a varied turkey day menu. Food and wine improved both. Outstanding 🍷🍷🦃🍷🦃🍷 — 13 days ago

Éloge Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2011

Ming L
9.2

This took about 2 hours decant to unfurl its full spectrum of aromas and flavors. Blackberry, cassis, olive, cedar, black pepper, and eucalyptus. Still quite primary with good fruit intensity. A bit lean but smooth and gentle, and gained weight over the course.
This will have long life ahead. Love the 11’ Napa vintage.
A left bank blend. For the money, I prefer the Right Bank bottling.

Château Montrose

Saint-Estèphe Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1988

Dark rubi robe and no sign of the age, nose of tobacco, blackcurrant, roasted pepper notes and a hint of flowers. Not a blockbuster like the 89 but this is elegant, complex, and oh soo good. No rush but probably no more development. Excellent bottle of classical claret. — 11 days ago

And you’re right as S-E has an undeserved reputation for rustic wines. Nothing further from the truth.

Château Lynch-Bages

Grand Cru Classé Pauillac Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 1989

Out of 375ml a brooding monster of a wine dense and alcoholic some overripe notes on the nose prune and dried plums . Four square a little soil signature. Lots of power coats the taste buds not refined in the least but the shear density and material is impressive . Reminds me of the 1990 beausejour Duffau the way it’s built . Going to have it with a steak and give it more air maybe some magic will happen ! — 3 days ago

Estate Vineyards Les Pavots Knights Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2019

2019 vintage. Flashback to the Les Pavots 1992 vintage with one. Some structure and power but less than usual. Concentration decent with plenty of harmony throughout. Missing that top-notch grip that his wine is known for. Patience-either cellaring or a loong decant/wait would likely yield more. — 6 days ago

Opus One

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2013

It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix.

Deep purple in color with a short purple rim.

Pretty nose of blueberries, cooked black cherries, blackberries, figs, cedar, vanilla, spices, chocolates, earth, herbs, coffee, tobacco, licorice and black pepper.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, currants, black cherries, raisins, dried figs, vanilla, cedar, cola, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, earth, bitter herbs and peppercorn.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon based Bordeaux blend from Napa Valley. Feels like a Napa Cabernet with a Bordeaux touch. Fruity and rich, yet elegant.

Good right out of the bottle, and better after 2 hours in the decanter, but it definitely needs longer than that.

What a great mouthfeel. I just love these Napa Bordeaux blends.

Still young and would be better in 5 to 10 years. Could be a 97+ point wine in 10 years. Will continue to age nicely in the next 20 years.

Thank you John for sharing this with me.

A blend of 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 6% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and 2% Malbec.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

94 points.

$500.
