Pellet Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here's a beautiful Cabernet.

Inky in color with a purplish/ reddish rim.

Fruity nose with blueberries, black currants, black cherries, cedar, light vanilla, tobacco, potpourri notes, chocolates, spices, light earth, wild flowers, licorice and black pepper.

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

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black cherries, oak, chocolates, tobacco, licorice, light vanilla, earth, light herbs, spices, coffee, light cola, graphite and black pepper.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a very tasty Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. A very nice sipping wine.

Still young, but already drinking very elegantly, with nice complexity and mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle and better with airtime. I gave it two and a half hours, but that might not have been enough. Nevertheless, it is delicious now and good by itself or with food. As it opens up, it shows a gorgeous nose.

Would be nice to revisit it in 5 years, and will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years.

I had the 2014 last year, and it is showing nice consistency. A good quality wine with good potential to become even better.

This Single Vineyard from this great vintage is rich, elegant, soft and spicy. Just Delicious.

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Aged for 20 months in French oak barrels (75% new). A small production of 375 cases.

14.7% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

$110.

Lillá in Fiore Napa Valley Rosé Blend 2019

Very light red/ pinkish in color with light intensity and a neon hue.

Strong nose of raspberries, light cherries, citrus, light barnyard, lemons, spices, light herbs and white pepper.

Full bodied, creamy and smooth, with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with cherries, raspberries, spices, light earth, lemons, pears, ginger and black pepper.

Long finish with tangy lemons.

This is a delicious Rosé from Napa Valley. Smooth and elegant with such a pretty color. Interesting and engaging.

Nicely balanced with a great mouthfeel. Rich with nice complexity.

Fruit forward and tastes like a very light red. Interesting stuff.

A nice sipping wine. Good right out of the bottle and good by itself or with food. Paired beautifully with the prosciutto.

Round Pond Estate

Reserve Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Deep purple without a hint of any other suggesting improper storage. Classic if a bit understated Napa nose. Soft yet appropriately firm tannins. Ripe black fruits. Luscious wine. Suggest drinking sooner rather than later owing to fruit ripeness. — 2 days ago

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars

Artemis Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Lovely dusty color. Rust on the classic rose. Aromas of berry. Flavors are what you expect in Napa Cab. Herbs, cassis, and the best berries. This is wonderful. — a month ago

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Last ‘12 in my cellar! Blend of 97% Cab Sauv, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Cab Franc, aged for 20 months in French oak (55% new), deep Ruby with aromas of dark dried fruit with notes of floral and spices. An ideal growing season in 2012, the palate shows dense ripe dark berry fruit with a touch of leather, cinnamon, espresso, mushroom and cacao. Well integrated with fine structured tannins, the wine is complex yet enjoyable, aged well still has room to run. Long finish ending with ripe fruits and oak. — 5 days ago
