TN: 3 Napa Cabs walk into a bar

#1 Post by Nick G A J E W S K I » June 11th, 2019, 7:51 am

2016 Becklyn Missouri Hopper Cabernet Sauvignon
$125
Dark Cherry, Blackberry, Tobacco, and Leather notes. Rich and layered, with a fantastic structure and primetime fine tannin.
Rating:95
.
2016 Kelly Fleming Cabernet Sauvignon
$165
Notes of Cherry, Earthy Raspberry, Nutmeg, & Bakers Chocolate. Concentrated and full-bodied to the core, every complex flavor pops! Tannin is not overwhelming but brings a balanced addition.
Rating:94
.
2015 Oakville Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon
$98
Spicy Raspberry, Ripened Plum, and Dark Chocolate notes. Ripe notes are a fantastic addition to this rich and dusty Cabernet.
Rating: 92

I’ve never had a Kelly Fleming cab but have always wanted to try one. Your note on the 2016 sounds delicious, Nick.

picked up a few 2012 Kelly Fleming Wines Big Pour's as part of a Wine Library mystery pack. Had never heard of them but was blown away.
