Food Pairings for August Briggs Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
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.
This 2003 vintage represents August Briggs seventh release of Napa Valley Cabernet. Due to moderate crop levels and a long ripening season this Mountain Cabernet is deep & dark, with a solid tannin structure and plenty of flavor. Aromas consist ofcoco, cola, earth, and vanilla. This cabernet is big, but approachable. Mucho Flavor! The 2003 August Briggs Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of two mountain vineyards located within the Napa Valley appellation. The first vineyard is on Diamond Mountain located in the western mountain range just outside the town of Calistoga. The second vineyard is in the Spring Mountain area also in the western mountain range just outside the town of St. Helena. The grapes for this blend were destemed and crushed into small, four ton open-topped tanks. After fermentation the wine set on the skins for an extended time before draining, pressing, and inoculating with a malo-lactic starter. This wine was barrel aged 22 months (50% French, 50% American Oak) prior to bottling. 434 cases produced.
