Four Bears Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2006
Our Napa Valley Cabernet displays aromas of raspberry, cassis and cigar box. Once in your mouth, the wines raspberry fruit flavors and combination of oak and tannin nuances create a well balanced, rich, full bodied wine. Grapes from sites throughout Napa Valley were harvested at optimal maturity, then de-stemmed and gently crushed in open-top stainless steel fermenters, at warm temperatures, to fully extract color and flavor. The fermented wine was then racked in a combination of French and American oak for aging, of which 20% was new. During the aging process the wine lots were tasted throughout and blended back together just before bottling.
Tight cherry nose, very closed. Light. Some cherry notes and the tannins are there, but really needs more time.
Best wine I have ever had in the price range. Very smooth.
I'm not fluent in the terminology of wine description but I do drink quite a lot of $12-$16 wine because that's what I can afford. For me, this cab (Sean Minor '06) ranks near the top of that price range. It has a smooth, somewhat buttery mouth feel and the tannins don't overpower while having a rich and well-developed fruit taste.
