Rubus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

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.

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.

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!
