Napa Valley Cab Flight: California Dreamin'
Napa Valley Wine Flight Night
- 1986 Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon Sycamore Vineyards – Soft aromas of olive, herbs, leather, and toasty notes. Lean in body with moderate acidity and muted red fruit flavors, touches of cedar and a medium length tart finish. This wine lacked structure, but for twenty-four years old it’s still kicking and tastes as good as some younger examples I have tasted. If I had any of these cellared I would think about consuming them soon. (13.5% ALC/VOL)
- 1989 Steltzner Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District – Pleasant aromas of dark cherry fruit, spice, currant, mint, stewed vegetables, and floral scents. Medium bodied with moderate acidity, offering subtle dark fruit flavors and a slight green integrated edge with spice components. This was an enjoyable wine with soft tannins and a slightly astringent finish. (13% ALC/VOL)
- 1992 Hess Collection Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Mount Veeder - Medium-intense aromas of mixed dark berry fruit and toasty overtones. Medium bodied wine that’s still showing good fruit on the palate framed in soft sweet oak with a smooth mouth feel. (13% ALC/VOL)
- 2005 Cavus Stags Leap District Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon – Powerful aromas of ripe currant, sweet plum, blueberry cobbler, and baking spice with cocoa and sweet oak notes. On the palate this wine is rich, concentrated, and full bodied with succulent fruit flavors and soft tannins. This wine is high-octane, but balanced and drinking nicely now. (15.5% ALC/VOL)
