Codename:

The Grandest Napa?

Happy Super Spy Sunday, dear Operative! We have a doozy of a wine for you, today.

Today’s wine is textbook Napa Valley Cabernet! Our entire tasting panel loved this wine and we’re thrilled to be able to share it with you at such a compelling price. This young wine is drinking well now, and it’ll only improve with time. Grab enough to last you a decade or more, as it is always interesting to see how a wine progresses as it ages.

This Napa Cab is picture perfect with a dense heart of garnet spreading out to a thin lip of a maroon hue. The nose also is like a case study in Napa Cabernet with clean notes of wet slate, blueberry, dried roses, potpourri, and leather. Beautiful. It comes through wonderfully on the palate as well, adding to the fresh red fruit flavors of cherry, cranberry and currant, toasty barrel flavors of vanilla and subtle caramel. Everything you’re looking for in a top-tier Napa Cab, it’s got structure, weight, smooth tannin, and bold fruit. Bravo! Steak? Not simply steak. Filet Mignon? Not simply Filet Mignon. Niman Ranch Filet Mignon? Now we’re talking.

We’re very grateful to Grand Napa for giving us access to their entire portfolio of wines. And, of course, we’re grateful to you, Operative, for your nearly 13 great years of patronage. Your love of great wines fuels us.

Enjoy!
