    December 4, 2022 - This is a special wine… to me. I know some people have enjoyed it more and less than others. But, I am unapologetically in love with it. Hope y’all loved it as much as I did. Last bottle enjoyed with a wagyu tomahawk ribeye that I cooked to my preference with precision.

    November 25, 2022 - Lori and Jen loved this wine. One of the best if not the best wine they have ever drank. The vanilla flavor added to the black cherry flavor put it on top.

    November 23, 2022 - Lori and Jen loved this wine. The vanilla made it unique. Very smooth. Nice blend of berries and the vanilla. Jen tastes the mocha flavor as well. Need to find more of this.

    November 4, 2022 - It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix.

    This is a very controversial wine in the wine world. Some love it, yet some really hate it. I can understand both sides.

    Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim. Not showing age at all.

    Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity.

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

    Nice finish with fine grained tannins and cherries.

    This is a great Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley.

    Tasty and delicious with a strong nose. Will continue to age nicely in the next 5 to 10 years.

    I had this vintage 7 years ago, and liked it just as much. This time
    I had it blind, so it is what it is.

    Wine Spectator 91 points. Robert Parker 96 points.

    This 10 year old is easy drinking and good for parties.

    Very enjoyable by itself or with food. A good sipping wine.

    14.6% alcohol by volume.

    93 points.
