2010 Headwaters Napa Valley Red Wine
California: Napa Valley
Deep purple, inky and opaque.
Cedar, graphite, dusty earth, grilled bread, clay, and berry compote.
Unctuous berry-packed flavor spiked with signature Cabernet (and friends!) nuances of black plums, currant jam, dried herb, and licorice. Extremely delicious.
Powerful. Head filling aromas and flavors. Tannins are smooth and polished, but have enough structure for aging.
It’s hard to not want grilled red meat, but there are other options too. Think hard cheeses, a hearty winter stew, sitting outside by the fire-pit, or nibbling on some good chocolate!
