Terra Valentine Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain District 2008
The nose opens with aromas of spicy cedar, boysenberry, bright fruit and eucalyptus. A candied fruit lingers on the mid palette with a finish of well balanced acidity. Drink now through 2014. This is a blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon (72% Wurtele & 28% Yverdon), 5% Merlot, and 3% Cabernet Franc.
High above the Napa Valley on Spring Mountain, Terra Valentine is a small production Cabernet Sauvignon house making intense and beautiful estate wines since 1996.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
