2008 Sempre Vive Napa Valley Cabernet
California: Napa Valley
We are very happy to welcome Romeo Vineyards back to TWS with their incredibly flavorful 2008 Sempre Vive Napa Valley Cabernet.
We have gotten so many requests for another of their Sempre Vive wines that we sent Agent Red back for more. He scored BIG by securing for you their 2008 Sempre Vive Cabernet Sauvignon. This delicious Napa Valley gem is an incredible wine.
Decant this wine for at least 30 minutes and you will be handsomely rewarded: the wine becomes softer, more elegant and far more flavorful than it does on opening. Drinking beautifully, now, this is one wine that we encourage you to stock up on. We can easily predict that it will continue to evolve for the next decade or more.
This wine is an incredible value and we offer it to you with our heartiest recommendation.
Beautiful dark ruby red, with perfectly even coloration from the edge of the wine through its slightly darker heart.
Lush, sweet, and spicy all at once, this wine is beautifully balanced on the nose. Aromas of spiced black cherry, blackberry, blueberry, vanilla, cassis, nasturtium flower, berry bramble, dried fall leaves and soft cedar all play together beautifully.
Balanced and delicious with flavors of blackberry juice, mixed berry compote, plum, black cherry, black pepper, black tea, wild strawberry, toasty oak and dried violets.
Extra long, with bright fruits yielding to darker fruits, spice and dried flowers. As flavors dwindle, the wine leaves behind a delightfully dry and slightly chewy feel.
A perfectly grilled ribeye, marinated in olive oil and freshly ground Provençal herbs.
