Food Pairings for Aquinas Cabernet
Im not a huge fan of Cabernet, but Aquinas is the delicious exception. At an equally exceptional price point, this wine is a must for those who are on the fence or for those just beginning to venture into the vast world of Cabernet. As opposed to other (more expensive) cabs I have tried in the past this wine is much more gentle on the pallet and can be enjoyed as a stand alone or with many different dishes. Lamb and Veal lovers will cling to this wine! You should be able to find a bottle around $15, although I have managed to obtain it around the $10 price point. This is one of those wines where you think to yourself, "Nike Slogan" (Just Do It)!
This wine has a classic Cabernet nose, with blackberry, black cherry, and plum components, and layers of deeper complexity. Dark chocolate and cardamom spice linger in the background with a hint of truffle. On the palate, blackberry cobbler flavors come through with dark chocolate, black cherry, and a touch of molasses. This wine's silky body is particularly inviting; juicy with fruit flavor, its full tannins give it a rich, fleshy quality. A big, full-bodied Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from start to finish, this wine's great fruit intensity yields to velvety tannins and a strong, bold finish.
