Don Sebastiani & Sons Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Screw Kappa Napa 2008
For people who appreciate wine without the pretense, Smoking Loon is the full-bodied California varietal wine that celebrates independent character and a Bohemian personality by going beyond a single plot of land or a château, to explore the best vineyards in each vintage through our négociant relationships.
A very good choice for budget buyers. Bold, fruity: what you want in a Cabernet. It's not refined by any means; nor, for that matter, is it subtle. But it's a good buy for a Friday night home with the missus.
A delicious budget buy at $9 on sale ($11 sticker). Have it with a meal - this inexpensive red pairs well with steak and compliments cheese wonderfully. Or drink it alone - it's clean flavors and medium dry character leaves the pallate wanting more.
External Reviews for Don Sebastiani & Sons Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Screw Kappa Napa
Dark plum color with a nose reminiscent of black cherries with a touch of cinnamon and cloves. Brimming with ripe raspberry and blackberry fruit with a touch of white pepper and dill; this Cabernet Sauvignon finishes with notes of currants and strawberry rhubarb pie filling. - Winery
Cedar, sandalwood, plum and cherry flavors carry over nicely to the palate, where the flavors are intense and well proportioned. Long, complex aftertaste. Drink now.
Food Pairings for Don Sebastiani & Sons Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Screw Kappa Napa
Aromas of raspberry, dark plum, and fresh oregano frame this Cabernet’s soft fruit with a light herbaceousness. Showing great varietal character on the palate, flavors of blackberry and red currant are closely followed by toasty French oak and a nuance of molasses on the mid-palate, adding weight and depth. Finishing with lingering crushed red berry and savory notes, the light tannins on the back end open up a variety of food pairing options. All together, the rich mouthfeel and fine structure creates balance in this wine that connoisseurs and novices alike will enjoy.
