2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
California: Napa Valley
Super deep, dark crimson throughout the glass, with a lighter red ruby around the fringe.
Bold aromas of dark plum and blackberry are framed by hints of cassis, sweet tobacco leaf, nutmeg, clove, sandalwood, black peppercorn, and a touch of espresso bean.
Well balanced and delicious flavors of sweet plum, boysenberry, and a touch of wild raspberry are layered overtop freshly tilled earth, dried fall leaves, pipe tobacco, dark baking spices, and a lovely note of river rock minerality.
This robust wine is best decanted. After it’s been given a chance to open, you’ll be greeted by a very smooth finish, with dark fruit and spice flavors that linger through the long finish.
Beef short ribs, braised with fresh bay leaves and a tamarind balsamic glaze.
