I can't remember where I got this bottle, but in looking it up on the internet, it apparently was a pretty pricey bottle, though I can't imagine I paid that much for it. Wine Spots is interesting in that rather than a single vineyard, they go to various spots known for great wines and work with local producers to come up with a wine that vividly illustrates what makes that spot great for wine, hence the Wine Spot! Well lucky for me, this particular bottle seeks to show the best of Napa Valley in a bottle of Cab, perfect for #CabernetDay!This wine was made with a blend of grape sourced from acclaimed sub-regions including Rutherford and Oakville, so it should be pretty good right? Well, I won't leave you in suspense any longer, it is indeed VERY good! The nose is an interesting combination of lush fruit, leather and a hint of a light floral scent. The mouthfeel is big and luscious, with lots of velvety tannins for a long finish. The taste bursts forth with blackberry and cherry, with a woodsy sort of background, and despite the early fruit, the wine is actually quite dry, really showing the greatness of Napa Valley Cabs. This wine would be a perfect match for grilled steak, or some rich barbecue as we approach the last holiday of summer, though tonight I'm enjoying it with some spicy chorizo and bean tacos! I can't remember how much this one cost, but ignoring price I would rate this one a solid 4, a great Napa Cap to enjoy anytime!
A delightful mix of fruit and juicy berry flavors. Hints of chocolate. Very elegant and balanced with smooth tannins. The 2006 vintage was good, but the 2007 is even better!
Fruit-driven but nicely balanced, classic Napa cab aromas of leather, chocolate and cherry. Lush palate of red fruit flavors made my mouth water for more! Integrated tannins and some earthiness on the finish. Terrific wine, recommended.
This is a nice wine with ripe fruit and fine tannins. I pick up cherry, black plum, cedar, dark chocolate, and a bit of vanilla. Tannins are well integrated and not overpowering which made this a nice pairing with grilled pork tenderloin. Nice find!
