Food Pairings for Sequoia Grove Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
This wine reminded me why I really love cab and why I don't drink cheap cabs! This one is a lot of wine for the money. Very flavorful, all the dark fruits one expects from a good cab, with a killer finish.

My wife and I love Sequoia Grove and 2007 is a prime example why.
This was one of three 2006 Napa cabs we opened for my 30th birthday. The other bottles were Pride Mountain and Larkmead Solari Reserve. All of the bottles decanted for three hours before serving. The Sequoia Grove is garnet in color with the rim showing just a slight amber hue. The nose was slightly astringent at first but then followed by bright cherry, raspberry and toast. In the mouth the wine is not heavy and just a touch drying, there is plenty of cherry and raspberry but also vanilla, tobacco and cedar. Nice balance between the tannins, acidity, and fruit. This bottle is a great bottle but scored third in our tasting.
This wine pours clear inky red color with some slightly lighter hues around the edges. Ample smells of cherries, cedar, tobacco, cloves and other spices. Starts off with a lot of red fruit, cherries mostly. In the middle, some all-spice and cedar balance out the fruit. This lasts throughout the whole rest of the tasting. A nice full-bodied red, nice balance. The tannins are still ample but not overpowering.
