Fetzer Vineyards

Valley Oaks North Coast Cabernet Sauvignon

Big fruit on the nose, black cherry, blackberry and a bit of vanilla to note of. Good tannin structure. Light acidity. Opened while still 3 years old, should have aged it a bit more, to see if some complexity develops. #CabSauv — 6 years ago

Casas del Bosque

Gran Reserva Maipo Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Robert Keenan Winery

40th Vintage Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Toasty plum and rye with cedar hinting at mascarpone-mint, boasting bright blueberry, dry blackberry and raisin-currant melange; withered hibiscus. Decidedly grape-y on the nose and into a mouthful of red currant, dried cranberries, green tea, pencil, cinnamon bark, savory, plus a salted black plum, and baked cranberry. This one has had oxygen exposure for 7 days, but is still wound up. Hold this one for a ten year minimum in my opinion. It was good yesterday, but better today. It shall not live to see tomorrow. Honestly built and spectacular in the making. #keenan #robertkeenanwinery #keenancab #napacabs #napacab #cab #cabernetsauvignon #cabsauv #sainthelena #springmountaincabernet #springmountaindistrict #springmountain #mountainfruit #mountainwine #sustainablyfarmed #sustainable #solarpoweredwine — 2 years ago

Egelhoff

Walton Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Began as black olives for miles but betrayed its fruit roots quickly enough, with baked black cherry, and a black plum mash; black currant and gingerbread-mocha notes sparkling on its grainy veneer. Torn violet petals. Lots of sediment, or pigmented tartaric crystals. Super elegant and fleshy mouthfeel is perhaps its most compelling nuance. Black currant, soft leather, smoke, a scribble of pencil, snuffed wick, teak, and black tea. Bittersweet chocolate remains like a cloud, suspended while most aspects fade. Leather friction.

9.0

2010 Freedom Run #Meritage #Merlot #CabFranc #CabSauv #NiagaraEscarpment #NYWine. Lively, black cherry, cassis & wild berry intertwined with spicy vanilla, tobacco and a whiff of earth. Perhaps a little reminiscent of right bank #Bordeaux from a warm vintage. #wine #sommelier #sommlife — 7 years ago

Double Diamond (Schrader)

Oakville Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Unbending purple-black. Lovely nose of lavender and thyme, dusty black cherry, dried blackberry and ripe black currant, as well as a lovely mint moment of varietal introspection. Vanilla and cedar remain in check, as oak bolsters without overwhelming. A thing of beauty. Intense black cherry and currant wash over a scree of firm tannins. Great backbone, stellar integration. Strangely, I’m drinking it, but looking forward to the next bottle? Hmm. The purity of the fruit shines through with raspberry and dried strawberry notes making spirit cameos alongside Connecticut tobacco, plum and Roobios tea, but also an unusual citrus and leather-pepper. I wasn’t expecting so many differing fruit profiles , and such un-manipulated purity of grape expression. Great job! No need for makeup and plastic surgery for this action star! #schrader #doublediamond #schradercellars #napacab #napawine #napawinning #oakville #cabernetsauvignon #cabsauv #schraderdoublediamond — 2 years ago

Trapiche

Astica Cuyo Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

My quest for the perfect, cost effective South American red has begun. Really impressed by my first contender. Moras negras predictably but effectively dominate this smooth, signature Cab Sauv. #cabernetsauvignon #cabsauv #cabsav #blackberries #cuyo #trapiche #argentina — 7 years ago
