Rubus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Plenty of ripe fruit, crushed blackberries, cherries and a dash of chocolate richness with a hint of spice. A refined finish with a juicy core. Pair with big foods — porterhouse steak, osso bucco and hearty stews. A true delight!

The name of this wine coincidentally corresponds with one of its tasting notes. “Rubus” means raspberry in Latin; it is the name given to the genus of flowering plants in the rose family. There is a significant scent of black raspberry on the nose along with currant and spice, mainly cinnamon. The black raspberry and currant are repeated on the palate, along with chocolate with a bit of oak and cherry. From the first velvety sip to the lingering finish, this wine remains smooth and very well balanced.

Yet another classic crowd pleaser made for importer and distributor Fran Kysela. Raspberry jam concentrate sprinkled with cocoa powder dust. Chocolate-covered cherries with cracked black pepper. The long finish alternates between milk chocolate and raspberry.

This Napa Cab outperforms many at its price point; the fruit is dark and loamy with a nice hit of anise spice at the back end. Nice and honest; nothing fake about it.
