Time for my Friday's Cabernet fix. Here is a delicious one from Lodi, California.

Dark ruby in color with a reddish rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, blueberries, cherries, plums, dried figs, smoke, spices, chocolates, mocha, dark coffee, spices, vanilla, wood and peppercorn.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, spices, peppercorn and leather.

Medium plus in finish with soft tannins and black pepper.

This Lodi Cabernet Sauvignon is always delicious. Well balanced, complex and interesting. Rich and extracted with a great mouthfeel.

Good by itself or with food, like a big piece of BBQ steak.
Good for parties or as a sipping wine.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

Time for my #FridayCabernetfix . Here's a nice one from Lodi, California.

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, blueberries, cherries, licorice, oak, vanilla, licorice, spices, smoke, chocolates, mocha, earth, leather, peppercorn and graphite.

Full bodied, smooth and bold, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate and very fruity, with blackberries, sweet plums, cherry pie, dried figs, tobacco, spices, wood, vanilla, earth, chocolate cake, coffee, peppercorn and leather.

Medium plus on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This Lodi Cabernet is always enjoyable. Showing nice complexity and a great mouthfeel. As a 4 year old, it is much softer, with a tangy ending. Well balanced and enjoyable by itself or with food. Might be too fruity for some.

Full-bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate and very fruity, with blackberries, sweet black plums, cooked cherries, vanilla, earth, oak, cloves, light bitter herbs, cola, chocolates, graphite, mint, spices and peppercorn.
