2011 Devil's Inkstand Cabernet Sauvignon - Winemaker’s Reserve
California: Sonoma County: Alexander Valley
The Devil's Plaything
When you consider our discount on today’s fantastic wine, you might think that Agent Red did a deal with the devil himself. Rest assured, he secured today’s 2011 Devil’s Inkstand Winemaker’s Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon through good old fashioned (wine) spy craft. Enjoy 45% off while we still have some left.
Aromas are smoky, dark and foreboding (as the name would imply) with plenty of dark fruit. Smoky blueberry, blackberry, and black cherry sit out in front, followed closely by cassis, cigar box, raspberry mocha, river rock, sweet spice and toasty oak.
On the palate, this wine is dark and juicy, with plum, black cherry, cassis and smoky blueberry with concentrated mixed berry jam, tobacco leaf, slate minerals, espresso, dark chocolate and mixed spice.
If you love juicy, delicious, food-friendly Cabernets, you’ve found a great one in today’s very highly recommended wine. At better than 45% off, you’ll be very pleased with your very smart purchase.
What the wine press has to say:
Awarded the Gold Medal at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Tasting.
“Petit Verdot (15%) infuses this Cabernet-based blend with black spice tones, forming a cool, savory, classical Alexander Valley red. There’s juiciness at the center of the wine that feels Californian, even such a cool vintage, surrounded by fine tannins that fit the fruit like a tailored suit. Age it for a roast leg of lamb.” - 92 points - Luke Sykora, Wine & Spirits, August 2014.
Beautiful dark crimson from edge to core. Wine stained tears cling to the glass wall before descending slowly downward.
Smoky blueberry, blackberry, black cherry, cassis, cigar box, raspberry mocha, river rock, sweet spice and toasty oak.
Plum, black cherry, cassis and smoky blueberry with concentrated mixed berry jam, tobacco leaf, slate minerals, espresso, dark chocolate and mixed spice.
Super long with dark fruits that outlast the spice and earthen elements.
Enjoy this very food-friendly wine with a wide range of food pairing choices. We’d go with a nice rare steak or a pork tenderloin.
