An excellent value for under $20, this Cabernet expresses spicy black cherry, briary blackberry and mocha aromas. Hints of clove and anise persist over the lengthy finish and ripe tannins add structure and plush texture on the palate.

Smooth and elegant, our 2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon delivers the reputed charm of its pedigree. Intense aromas, led by toasty oak and spice, unfold with layers of cardamom, cedar, dark chocolate and anise over briary fruit. Velvety, plush and round, the palate delivers style and sophistication with enjoyable, rewarding accessibility. Layers of red fruit, brown sugar, and black licorice are joined by chocolately tannins that melt into a long finish. The cooler vintage left a lift of acid that makes it perfect for pairing with food. Try with a hearty mushroom tart, roasted pork loin or grilled meat. - WineryBarrel Aging: 12- 14 months46% French oak38% American oak16% European oakAlcohol: 14.6%Acidity: 5.9 g/L
