An elegant, Bordeaux-styled Cabernet from Napa Valley, B Side is a great alternative to the thick and fruity Cabs that generally come from this area. Deep, spicy, herbal flavors abound, such as tobacco, paprika, black pepper and eucalyptus, overlaid with soft red and black fruit flavors. Great structure; this is one for the cellar if you can restrain yourself from drinking it now!

Holds its own in a tasting of Napa Cabs that cost, three, four, even five times as much. Made with a drop of Petite Sirah, itrsquo;s dry, firmly tannic and complex, with black currant, beef jerky, miso, pepper spice and smoky oak flavors. Best now and for a couple years.

A Bordeaux-style Cabernet that shows off a different side of Napa Valley.

Just like Marlena Shawrsquo;s ldquo;California Soul,rdquo; The Righteous Brothersrsquo; ldquo;Unchained Melody,rdquo; Cliff Noblesrsquo; ldquo;The Horserdquo; or even (inexplicably) Booker T. amp; the MGrsquo;s classic instrumental ldquo;Green Onions,rdquo; this soulful wine started life as a B-side. You will find when you pour yourself a glass, however, that it drinks more like a double A-sidehellip; a smash hit on the nose and the palate. Opaque ruby in color. You are greeted by aromas of cassis and pencil shavings with hints of black pepper and wild blueberry, lent possibly by the small amount of Petite Sirah added to the wine. The palate contains flavors of plum and ripe dark cherry with a mildly oaky finish and chewy tannins. Pair with peppercorn crusted lamb shanks with orange chutney and wild mushroom risotto. Drink now. Can you dig it?
