Longevity Wines Cabernet Sauvignon Livermore Valley 2006

External Review:

At least that's what I want Longevity to mean. . . but who knows. I think if you drink delicious wine you will do just that. . . live long and prosper I mean. And what a better place to start than here. If you are a Cab fan, you've come to the right place. This Cab is pretty right on with it's hints of red tree bark, star anise, and a whiff of citronella. There is also a hint of cherry cola - my second favorite! - that leads in to catch you unaware. Can I be like one of the greats and say . . . this wine is simple, yet complex. I think it is. It's flavors are layered nicely with a touch of oak, it's well rounded, and the finish lasts for days! But at the same time, it's simply. . . . good.

This wine exhibits some of the characteristics which I love about fruit. Some like their cherries sweet and ripe. I love mine when they are still a bit unripe and hard - sending a contradictory surge of sweetness and bitterness through my pallet. This cab has that finish. Hints of not-quite-ripe melons and cherries pair with a well-rounded body and a lasting tart finish....yum

This is a phenomenal Cab at a great value! A great companion with dinner or a great sipping wine, you can't help but love it for all occasions! The nose is anise and cola and cherries, while there are grippy flavors of red licorice - nice! The finish goes on for days, rich dark fruit dancing in my mouth's memory! A really nice offering for a splendid value - pick up a case and age half of it! Share the rest of the wine with those you love!

Interesting combo of cola and watermelon hanging out with some cherries in a dark alley... and that's just the SMELL!!! :) This cab had some great flavors!

The toasted vanilla oak, blends with rich blackberry, currant, black cherry and thyme. This wine has a rich, deep nose, and a supple smooth finish. This wine lends itself for drinking alone or being paired with food.
