Grand Napa Vineyards Stone Crib Vineyard Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, Napa Valley, California
It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley.
Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.
Fruity nose of blackberries, sweet cherries, cedar, spices, espresso, vanilla, dark chocolates, light earth, tobacco leaf and black pepper.
Full bodied and smooth, with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with blackberries, plums, cooked cherries, oak, dark chocolates, vanilla, licorice, cloves, spices, coffee, peppercorn, earth, black tea, light wet leaves and herbs.
Nice finish with round tannins and tangy cherries.
This Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from Rutherford is still young, and would be even better in a few years. Already showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel.
Rich, yet elegant. Nicely balanced and smooth.
Good right out of the bottle and better after 2 hours of airtime. Fruit forward and extracted.
This 4 year old will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years. Will be nice to revisit it in 3 years and see how it evolved.
Good by itself or with food. Paired beautifully with a filet minion and asparagus.
Grapes were aged for 24 months in (80% new) French Oak barrels. Limited Production.
14.8% alcohol by volume.
