Tasting Notes:

This well-structured Cabernet Sauvignon has aromas and flavors of black currant, huckleberry, black berry, citrus peel and rose. The complex fruit is accented with cassis, nutmeg, coffee and dark chocolate. This wine has a balanced palate with sweet fruit and layers of complexity followed with a long finish.
Winemaker Notes:

The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon is the fourth release in our line-up of distinguished Cabernets. The grapes for the 2006 vintage came primarily from the Oak Knoll, Yountville and Calistoga districts. This Cabernet Sauvignon was blended to have complex flavors and good structure. To achieve this in the 2006 vintage, we blended Cabernet Sauvignon lots from several different Napa Valley sub appellations along with five percent Cabernet Franc from South Napa. The Cabernet Franc component brings additional texture, elegant tannins, bright fruit and spice to the final blend.
Food Pairing:

A good food wine; serve this wine to compliment prime rib, mushroom risotto, duck confit or a gruyere soufflé.

Region Description

This tiny strip of land just north of San Francisco is home to America’s most prestigious wineries. Its climate is ideal for viticulture. Ironically, it was deemed too ideal for some vintners, who have moved their vineyards from the valley’s flat plain to the hills in the east and west, adhering to the idea that grapes that struggle to grow yield better wine. The climate, soil, and individual wineries are enormously varied, so it’s impossible to identify a singular trait of Napa wines. In addition, nearly every noble grape is grown here, although Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon are the primary grapes. In the past, Napa’s wines have alternated between extremely fruity and fat to lean and subtle. Today the best Napa wines have achieved a balance between these extremes. Many are made to be drunk young and have abundant ripe fruit; others can be initially hard and tannic, but soften over four or five years to perfumed, cedary fruit. White Napa wines are excellent with fresh-grilled fish and chicken, but can also cope with more spicy and creamy flavors. Many Napa reds will overwhelm delicate cuisine, but rich red meat and cheeses do make good companions.
