2020 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley 375 ml
The rich and compelling nose of blackberry, blueberries, sandalwood and dried herbs are augmented by layers of plum, cherry, cocoa, and graphite.
TASTING NOTES: A rich and compelling nose of blackberry, blueberries, sandalwood and dried herbs are augmented by layers of plum and cherry, cocoa and graphite. Bold and full bodied, this wine is structured firmly around a solid core of rich fruit, licorice and herbs. Supple, ripe tannins provide ample backbone. The mouth-feel is plush and unctuous while retaining stability and finesse. The finish is extended, with lingering flavors of caramel, sweet oak and chocolate. Decant to open up the complexity; best now through 2030.
FOOD PAIRING: A quintessential Cabernet, this bold and structured wine is an effortless match with well-marbled beef and long-braised stews and sauces. Dishes with fresh herbs will marry nicely with the earthy notes, while the bold fruit will complement hard cheeses like Parmesan or Asiago.
