The Franc Lodi Cabernet Franc 2021

Love this varietal but not at this ABV. The fruit overpowers the earthiness and makes me think of Cab Sav. Under $25 where I live — 2 months ago

Limited Release Cigar Bourbon Barrel Aged Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Love Cosentino! This one doesn't fail to deliver. Nose - blackberries, casis, little bit of boxwood, and a note from the Bourbon barrel. Taste - bit of black pepper, blackberries, strawberries, cherries. Slight influence of the Bourbon Barrel aging, but not the sweetness that often comes with that.

Very good, especially for the price.

CE2V Secret Clone Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

A perfect wine? Perhaps. Not many Napa wines can have this kind of horsepower at 19 years old (I was always told Napa wines fall apart after 15 years). I’ve never had Screaming Eagle or Grace Family or any of the new “premier cru” wines. What I will say, though, is that I have a hard time imagining a wine being better than this. Plush, with a solid core. Very little fade. Let it breathe, but it was drinkable right out of the bottle, rich with refined tannins, so much fruit, so much pleasure. The oak is now seamless with the wine, not an addition, but a part of it. If you had told me this was a more recent vintage, I would have believed you. This was Cosentino’s top of the line and what a top it was. Age has allowed for more complexity (I did taste this when it was newly bottled) and development, but this is a young wine, still. Nothing out of place. It is one of the best wines I’ve ever tasted. Quintessential Napa, the best the valley has to offer. I forget the story of “the secret clone” but knowing what all the steps are in making great wine, having this clone was just one of the many right choices in making this. This one may outlive me. It is in its prime with no end in sight. Perfect? I’m not sure. But I’ve not had better. — 2 months ago
