Food Pairings for Liparita Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon V Block Yountville
Hardly could tell it's a cab, seems more like a rich smooth tannat or something. Tested on well-aired bottle, 3 hrs. Nose of hints of eucalyptus or menthol, sharp spices, sour dark fruit. In the mouth very deep dark black fruit (that dives deeper as it lingers), some astringency on the attack, but quite creamy and woody with fuzzy tannins as it moves into the finish. Dry. Body medium plus, acid medium, tannins medium plus.
"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon V Block exhibits a dense ruby/purple color as well as beautiful aromas of sweet cassis and spring flowers. Medium-bodied, long and well-balanced with a pure texture, this terrific Yountville Cabernet is a revelation...92" WA 10/13 "From its dense nose of dark chocolate and even darker berry to its mélange of blue and red fruit that at once peppers the tongue and then layers it in velvet licorice, there’s no doubt about an elegant sensation. Tannins exist with the most tender tough: feminine, but more femme fatale than Earth Mother...94." The Tasting Panel
