Chateau Montelena

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1997

1997 and holding up very well. Brisket, prune and baked plum, graphite sparkles, dried red currant, crumbly rose petal, cedar sawdust and baked black currant. Rich and half dried black cherry, similar with black currant, velvety thick robe of tannin, dark chocolate with dried raspberries, violets and cinnamon, fresh raspberry, mild black pepper, coffee splash and long long graphite shine. Amazed at the quality here, and stunned by the longevity.

Epic Vintage!

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

Mayacamas Vineyards

Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon 1999

Blood ruby pushing purple. Black and red licorice wound around a core of dusty oak. Smoky, with smells of cigar boxes and dried violets, roses and a potpourri of others including heather and light lavender. Tight still with a bing cherry middle, red currant, tart blueberry and boysenberry. Baked plum unravels to the aforementioned oak with a cedar-cigar and pronounced oak exposure. Wound tight in some places, and unraveling slowly in others.

Nice pull

Titus

Napa Valley Cabernet Franc 2016

Now we are talking! Getting close to half a hundred $ gets you a quality #napacab ; Titus has executed beautifully in this price range. Lovely dense cassis fruit, chocolate and coffee notes, bigger alcohol and less acid but delicious modern Napa style #cabernetsauvignon — 3 years ago

Teaderman Vineyards

Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Still has everything it needs to age further! Toasty, herbaceous nose of baker’s chocolate, rosemary, oregano, dried black currant, graphite-infused plum bordering on prune, dried blackberry, Madura tobacco, licorice and dark cedar notes. Elegant mouthfeel with chewy tannins, tarragon, cigar, black currant, bramble, graphite shades, dark minerality, blackberry. Cinnamon bark, black cherry, figs, and more for a long and satisfyingly complex finish.#Teaderman #Napa #NapaCab #cab #oakville #TeadermanVineyards #wine #napawine #finesse #depth — 4 years ago

Corison

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Solid Napa cab, with violet nose. Graphite, currant, black cherry, espresso, and blackberry, remarkable, chewy tannins, and structure. Details lacking as it was the last wine and accompanied cherry pie. But made a great impression. .

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
