Doubleback Cabernet Sauvignon Walla Walla Valley 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Review Rated 91 The 2005 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a nuanced wine that illustrates the results of cool, gradual ripening and a deft balance of varietal components. It has a dark garnet color and a complex nose of boysenberry, truffles, wild game, soy, and black pepper. On the palate, the wine has a silky mouthfeel and an elegant, long finish with a slight tannic grip. With proper cellaring it should give drinking pleasure through 2032.

The wine is a beautiful deep garnet color in the glass with nice clarity. The nose is a lovely combination of ripe wild berries, blackberry, marionberry and raspberry intermingled with some earthy notes of leather and a hint of baking spice. The taste is a burst of tart cherry at the outset that transitions nicely to some vanilla bean and dark chocolate midpalate. The finish seems to last until you take your next sip, as the smooth tannins undergird the fantastic acidity that abides in this long, voluptuous and exceedingly dry finish.

The Best of Napa - Caymus and Silver Oak Cabernets - It doesn't get better than this. There is no second guessing about money well spent on these two cabernets. Vintage after vintage, these two reputable cabernet sauvignons deliver with quality and consistency. Best of all, save 10% off our retail price when bought together.
