Rich And Bold

Kenefick Ranch

Caitlin's Select Napa Valley Cabernet Franc 2016

v16. This is what $50 should taste like … Delicious..soft smoked meat and sharp cedar nose. Bold, bright, rich black fruits. Long, full, smooth, slightly chalky, chewy, mocha and baking spice finish. Nicely balanced and very good! — 17 days ago

Chalone Muscat

Optio Vineyards La Mar Vineyard Petite Sirah 2020, Paso Robles, California

Deep purple in color with a short purplish rim.

Full bodied with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with nice complexity and mouthfeel.

Showing black currants, cooked cherries, plums, dried figs, tobacco, oak, spices, light vanilla, peppercorn and bitter herbs.

Nice length on the finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a tasty Petite Sirah from Paso Robles. Showing nice complexity, rich and concentrated.

This Single Vineyard is a nice sipping wine, big and bold. Good right out of the bottle and good by itself. Fruit forward, extracted and jammy.

Still young and would be better in a few years. Would be nice to revisit it in 5 years, and see if it calms down a bit.

In your face kind of wine, so not for the faint of hearts, with a teeth staining color.

Petite Sirah grapes were aged in (50% new) oak barrels for 17 months. A tiny production of only 660 bottles.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

Krupp Brothers

Stagecoach Vineyard Synchrony Red Bordeaux Blend 2012

It is time for my #FridayCabernetfix. This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon/Franc blend from the great 2012 vintage.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.

Showing black fruits with cedar, vanilla, leather, spices, earth, peppercorn, chocolates, tobacco, herbs and coffee.

This 10 year old Single Vineyard is extracted and rich, yet elegant.

This fabulous wine is drinking wonderfully right now, and will continue to age nicely in the next 10 to 15 years.

I paired it with a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

A blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Cabernet Franc and 4% Malbec. Aged for 22 months in (70% new) French Oak barrels. A tiny production of only 5 barrels.

94 points.

Bright, citrus. Like lemonade with less sugar and not as potent alcohol as limoncello. Perfect for refreshing — 20 days ago
