August Briggs Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2007

Member Review by michaeldesonnaville:

Deep red/purple color. Very aromatic, with cassis, black cherry and blackberry. Gentle oak influence giving a smooth slight coco/berry/vanilla aroma. Full-bodied, intense and juicy. Upfront fruit with a taste profile that fits the "nose", with a long finish. Firm, yet smooth tannins produce a mouth-coating texture that set this wine apart form others.

August Briggs Winery is an "employees turned owners" winery in Napa Valley dedicated to producing very limited quantities of great wines from carefully selected vineyards across  Napa and Sonoma counties. Founder Joe Briggs brings a quarter-century of winemaking knowledge in working with quality grape growers to produce our signature style of balanced wines with intense fruit character. The August Briggs staff invites you to their comfortable and sophisticated tasting room in downtown Calistoga. We are a craft producer of small lot wines showcasing Napa and Sonoma’s “rock star” vineyards. Our eclectic portfolio includes single vineyard and appellation bottlings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Pinot Meunier, Zinfandel, Chardonnay and Charbono – each one an expression of restrained winemaking and site signature. In select vintages we also produce “Wishes”, a cellar selection of our finest red barrels. Our wines are available in select markets and at our new tasting room in historic Calistoga. Read less

We purchased on our trip to Napa. We have not been disappointed! Great notes, not overpowering. We enjoyed before dinner with some cheddar and aged Old Amsterdam. Just a fun wine, great to share with friends.

From the famed Monte Rosso Vineyard, August Briggs has produced this pure, complex, and focused Cabernet Sauvignon. Bright cassis fruit on top of layers of tannin, earth, and mocha.
