Far Niente - Cabernet Sauvignon Estate
Brambly mixture of dark berry fruit with a touch of plum, spice and cedar notes and medium tannins. No need to decant.
Revana Family - Cabernet Sauvignon (Estate)
Big Revana fan but not my favorite vintage. Bold dark berry fruit, some heat initially, lots of minerality, finish is light, more cherry, and the oak is prevalent.
Cade - Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain
Totally mesmerized by this wine. Thought it was incredible a year+ ago, it is stunning today. Velvety smooth, rich, mouth coating, dark berry fruit, strong cassis and firm tannins. Bought at the winery in 2011, going back this weekend, hope they have a few bottles hidden away that I can talk them out of. And this is a screw cap.
Seavey - Cabernet Sauvignon
What a transformation after 90+ minutes of patience. I almost poured the bottle out after the first glass or two. What started off rough, mostly oak and strongly medicinal on the nose turned into a beautifully aged, velvet glove of dark berry fruit, mild oak, slight earth and fully integrated tannins. Still enough weight for a steak dinner. I paid $29.99 a bottle about 4 years ago. On Seavey's website the same bottle is $195.00. Seems time to drink up but who knows may have a few more years if cellared properly.
