Pabenger Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District Napa Valley 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Passenger is a project from wine broker/distributor Kimberly Jones and Master Sommelier Chris Blanchard. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon has beautiful, intense, dark ruby red color. This wine is all about balance. Balanced with a moderate alcohol level that is supported and absorbed by structure and concentration. Pretty, dark fruit, red and black, rich, without being overripe. Moderate oak that seems familiar, but not overwhelming, and barely noticeable, even after 24 months in 25% new and used top quality French oak. It finishes long with powerful fruit and structure, elegance and fine, integrated tannins. 98 cases produced.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
