Blackford Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2001

Member Review by jaye:

GREAT NOSE! Sweet cassis, blueberry, a little tobacco, and maybe a little Szechuan pepper. Taste (immediately after opening) is cherry, tobacco, rosehips -- I can tell this will continue to evolve! The 14.5% alcohol is well integrated. Nice, drying tannins. This is drinking beautifully now! On day 2 this wine was even better. After comparing to other CA cabs at this price point, this one has to be rated Outstanding!

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
