Mission Briefing

Codename:

2010 to the power of Z

Today’s Homage Vineyard 2010 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is an Old World charmer from our friend, master winemaker Rudy Z.

Today’s wine was handcrafted from the 2010 Napa Vintage, which Wine Spectator editor in chief James Laube gave a massive score of 98 points. 2010 and 2007 are the two vintages you should pay close attention to, stocking up when you find a truly superb example.

This wine took our entire tasting panel by storm. Please accept this delicious gem with our boldest recommendation.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Deep, dark, and - dare we say - foreboding scarlet in the center of the glass. Gorgeous.

Smell:

Beautifully layered aromas leap from the glass, with concentrated dark red fruit notes of black raspberry, wild strawberry, and black currant laid overtop pipe tobacco, dried fallen leaves, dried rose petals, lavender, sage, and a kiss of rosemary.

Taste:

Classic Calistoga Cabernet flavors of lush fruit and a dusty earthiness on the palate, with dark cherry and blackberry laid overtop coffee bean, sandalwood, white peppercorn, earthy berry bramble, anise, a touch of cranberry, and subtle dried herbs.

Finish:

Incredibly smooth and supple on the finish, with lingering flavors and a luxurious mouthfeel that make this wine a joy to drink.

Pairing:

Caramel-glazed roasted pork ribs, served with homemade red cabbage cole slaw.
