Napa Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville 2008
“The 2008 Reserve Stagecoach Cabernet Sauvignon presents rich aromas of cocoa, cedar, plum and a hint of blackberry cobbler. The wine is full-bodied with flavors of dark fruit, cassis, and blackberry. Rich tannins are balanced by lower alcohol, resulting in a finessed finish.“ —Joe Shirley
Editorial Reviews for Napa Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville
Showing a sense of restraint and balance that is unusual at this price point this offers a fine marriage of Dark cherry and plum fruits with integrated notes of mint and wood spice. Smooth and well integrated with a fine finish this needs an hour or so to really hit it’s stride but once there it pumps out classic Cabernet flavors with a smooth, dark, spicy vibe. 2009-2014 89pts
Rich and balanced - there's a lot of dark fruit and spice (cocoa and cedar), but less overly fruity than most cali cabs. Very nice, with good structure on the finish. A bit of licorice on the finish, but overall a good sophisticated wine for the price
This wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, and its intense ruby color is very inviting. The nose on this Cabernet was very pronounced—dominated by dark plums and vanilla, with a slight hint of anise. As soon as you taste this wine, you’ll feel the high tannins pull at your gums, and when mixed with the spicy, ripe blackberry and black cherry flavors, it’s very enjoyable. Overall, the flavors are very vibrant and balanced. For a detailed review, visit my blog at http://bit.ly/2FENep
Had wine with Hayashi & Akita, excellent wine. I had the 2009 vintage!
One of the best cabs I have had for the money, i would put it against a $40 Napa cab any day. full bodied, goes great with a hearty steak or anything with a red wine sauce.. winemall.com has sale 6 @ approx $17 each.. anyone else know where to get deals on it?
