Food Pairings for Heartsmart "Great Dane" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Don’t be expecting any kind of “fruit bomb”! That’s not what the HeartSmart Great Dane Cab is about. Dark and brooding blackberry, plum and cassis. with vanilla, toasted oak, coconut, and bittersweet chocolate. There is some red fruit lurking deep in there, but it isn’t much. Plenty of tannin and acidity, leading to a lengthy finish. I aerated with my Soiree, which certainly helped, but the ‘08 Great Dane certainly needs at least another few years in the bottle to realize its full potential.
