Mission Briefing

Codename:

Sol Power

Today’s Sol Rouge Vineyard & Winery 2010 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a more than welcome return to The Wine Spies from one of our favorite wineries. Winemaker Bryan Kane always comes through with fantastic wines, and with the *Wine Spectator Magazine** ranking of *98 points**, we had incredibly high hopes for this one. Lo and behold, this Napa Cab was so delicious it surpassed even our highest expectations!

Lush and luxurious, this wine is highlighted by the stunning interplay of sweet dark fruit and earth on the mid-palate, with a silky smooth finish that has just the right amount of velvety grip. When you think of a classic Napa Cab, this wine fits the bill perfectly.

We have had the pleasure of bringing you some amazing Napa Cabs in the past, and this gem from Sol Rouge belongs with the best of them. Be sure to stock up!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deepest, darkest scarlet at the center of the glass, with a lovely hazy red ruby at the edge.

Smell:

Rich and concentrated on the nose, with stewed black cherry, dark plum jam, aged cigar box, sweet cedar wood, dark baking spices, and espresso bean.

Taste:

A beautiful combination of dark fruit and sweet earth, with reduced fruit of sweet plum, blackberry, and black currant laid overtop sweet tobacco leaf, fresh berry bramble, licorice, clove, nutmeg, rosemary, and a touch of pomegranate black tea.

Finish:

Long and luxurious, with plenty of dark fruit and sweet earth slowly trailing away, leaving a subtle tartness on the tip of the tongue.

Pairing:

A grilled New York Strip, served with a mushroom and pink peppercorn reduction drizzled overtop.
