Mission Briefing

Codename:

The Lion's Roar

Today’s 2006 Ideology Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic Napa Valley Cabernet, with wonderful balance, deep fruit, and a deliciously concentrated flavor. Master Sommelier Catherine Fallis agreed wholeheartedly and awarded today’s wine an astounding 94 Points.

If you’re a fan of big and robust wines, this is one for you. It also pairs extremely well with a wide range of food options. We decided to get creative and pair ours with homemade Chorizo tamales, served with fresh cilantro and tomato salsa. Lo and behold, the pairing worked beautifully, with the wine and food complementing each other exactly as we’d hoped.

Agent Red could only secure a few cases of this under-the-radar gem, so you’d better act fast - it’s bound to sell out early!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep, nearly inky scarlet at the center of the glass, with just a hint of a lighter red ruby fringe.

Smell:

Bold intensity with aromas of earthy cherry and blackberry underpinned by a base of smoky sweet-woods and soft exotic spices. As the wine opens up, the slightly perfumed nose reveals a hint of licorice and subtle fresh salad herbs.

Taste:

A delicious balance of earthy fruit with ripe tart cherry, blackberry, and dark plum juxtaposed against well integrated notes of smoky cedar and soft spice.

Finish:

Long, soft, and luxurious, with lingering flavors of dark berries and earthen notes, supported by the wine’s plush tannins.

Pairing:

Cajun spiced roasted salmon filet, served alongside roasted asparagus.
