Estate Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

I remember loving this the last time I had it (August ‘19). Still lovely. Not as juicy as previous notes. Still Blackberry, blueberry, and vanilla. Less fruity than I remember but that makes sense. Black olive / almost iodine blew off in an hour replaced by pencil shavings. There is a molasses quality to this I associate with the ‘13 Roy estate and ‘13 Roy Cor Leonis. A ‘13 thing? This wine makes me think of a song by Black Keys - Thickfreakness for some reason. Look it up you’ll thank me. — 14 days ago

Definitely a hedonistic style wine. Love the Black Keys!

Oakville Grade Red Wine 2015

An oddly-named bottling. “Oakville Grade”? I suppose majority of the juicy from Oakville, but I could not find much information on this 15’ blend.
Gentle nose of red cherry, blueberry, black currant, creme de cassis, fresh herbs, and vanilla. The medium to full body feels weightless at times. Full of fresh sweet (a bit too sweet for me) cherries flavor. Silky, plush, almost feminine. Finely grained sweet tannins.
From magnum. This is still very primary, and will have a long life ahead.

Reserve Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

Brown sugar. Big red fruit - cranberry and raspberry. Still tannic 13 years later. Balanced yeast & barrel. Clove and allspice. Rosemary. Very enjoyable in its current form, but could keep aging a bit. — 12 days ago
