Mission Briefing

Codename:

Deep Roots

Our pursuit of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is tireless. When a Napa Cab emerges that displays the region’s tried and true character without costing a small fortune, we go big. Today’s Danais Cabernet is made from a historic vineyard planted in 1967 in the heart of Napa Valley’s Oak Knoll District. It has pedigree and depth of flavor that aren’t commonly found for $24.99 a bottle. Need we say more. Stock up!

“Made with pristine fruit from the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley; this classy wine features lofty aromas of dark berries, mint, chocolate and cedar. On the palate, the flavors are lush, with vibrant notes of dark cherry, raspberry, plum, black currant and Almond Roca; subtle hints of peppermint, clove and rye; and a long, smooth finish.” 93 points - Christopher Sawyer, Sommelier and Wine Critic

Tasting Profile

Look:

Crimson.

Smell:

Cedar, dusty plums, fancy leather, and cocoa dust.

Taste:

The flavor profile is impressive with old-vine depth, complexity, and 2010’s nearly perfect vintage character. Chocolate covered berries with sweet tobacco, cedar, and dusty hills make it hard to resist now, but it will only improve over the next 5-8 years.

Finish:

Smooth and polished. Soft oak spice gently seasons the pitch-perfect Cabernet profile.

Pairing:

The combination of power, grace, and finesse makes this a great wine to pair with charcuterie, seasonal salads made with arugula, pomegranate, shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano and tangy balsamic vinaigrette, stuffed portabella mushrooms, gourmet mac & cheese, herb roasted potatoes au gratin, pan-seared duck, tender rack of lamb, prime rib with creamy horseradish, and chocolate truffles.
