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.
Not quite as good as we had thought it would be.

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.
Decanted for about 45 minutes. Pours a dark inky violet color with dark red hues on the edges. As this decants, the aromas of red berries, plums, spices and vanilla come through. Starts off with ample cherry flavors up front. On the middle of the palate, more cherry flavor with strong undertones of tobacco, spices and vanilla. Finishes with a slight diminishing of cherry flavor and more tovacco, cinnamon, cloves, coriander and vanilla. This is a bold full bodied red wine. Nice structure and ample tannins on the back of the palate.
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.

Full bodied, rich and fruit forward with generous aromas of blackberry, currant, and spice. Fine tannins and a bright acidic structure.
This elegantly crafted, balanced wine is marked by fine, pure, ripe blackberry and cassis flavors and aromas with notes of spice, cedar and discreet vanilla set in a silky texture supported by refined tannins.
93 Points - Wine Enthusiats This is a dark, big, deeply flavored Cabernet whose tannic structure strongly suggests mid- to long-term aging. Bone dry, it has flashy flavors of black currants, dark chocolate and cedar.
