Mario Bazan Cellars
2011 RAMA Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
California: Napa Valley
A lustrous scarlet, with flecks of inky dark purple and ruby swirling through as well.
A beautiful representation of high-elevation aromatics. Concentrated dark fruit is pared with eucalyptus, cedar wood, dried Provençal herbs, clove, anise, and black peppercorn spice.
A tremendous depth of flavor on this wine - you’d think you’re sipping a top dollar cult Napa Cab. Braised dark plum and black cherry are laid overtop mint, cedar, toasty vanilla bean, peppercorn, coffee bean, dark chocolate, and a bit of clove.
A lingering finish, highlighted by velvety tannins and fantastic structure. A delight to drink, with the high-elevation aromatics sticking with you through the very end.
Black peppercorn encrusted filet mignon, seared in cast iron.
