Feast It Forward
2010 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
California: Napa Valley
We absolutely adore today’s Feast It Forward 2010 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. In fact, our tasting panel was so impressed that a couple of members laid claim to several cases immediately after our tasting. But there’s even more to today’s wine than its scrumptious flavor profile…
When we think of Napa red wines, one of the first wines that pops into our heads is Joseph Phelps Insignia. It’s truly a delicious wine - with a price tag to match (upwards of $200). Well, we discovered that today’s wine is produced from the very same grapes, at just 1/4 of the price!
So now the choice is yours: 1 bottle or 4 of the same Cabernet grapes. Choose wisely!
A deep, dark spiced-rhubarb pie red.
Lofty aromatics of juicy fruit and fresh floral tones create a beautiful nose on today’s wine. Dark cherry and blackberry join rose petals, tobacco leaf, dried summer earth, and just a touch of fresh rosemary and California bay leaf.
Refined, elegant, and incredibly yummy, today’s wine nails the fresh herbal element that Napa Cab lovers crave. Juicy fruit, dried summer earth, the aforementioned herbs, and dark spices combine to hit all the right notes for serious Cab lovers.
Smooth and supple, today’s wine is very well balanced, with tremendous structure and a delightful ‘pop’ of acidity.
