We love the oddball, one-off wines as much as anyone but there are times when we want a sure thing. And really, what has a higher probability of being delicious than Napa Cabernet? So, this week we are featuring one of our all time favorite Napa Cab deals. Napa Cellars draws fruit for their Napa Valley Cabernet from the finest parts of the Valley including Oak Knoll, Atlas Peak, and Rutherford. That pedigree is evident in every facet of the 2016 Cabernet beginning with a richly perfumed nose of pipe tobacco, potpourri, farmers market plums dusted with cocoa powder, and warm brown sugar. On the palate, you’ll find that the entry bursts with mid-summer blackberry, cassis, and blueberry compote. That fruit is encircled by some nice ripe fruit tannin and the silky richness that only aging in new French oak barrels can bring. On the finish you’ll get impressive purity of fruit underscored by hints of graphite, blood orange zest, and bouquet garni. Though it is a nice, firm Napa Cab this lush effort has no hard edges. Instead it a “steakhouse style” Red that was clearly built with pleasure first and foremost in mind. This is a full on Saturday-night-with-a-steak kind of Napa Cabernet for less than twenty bucks! Please swing by the tasting bar tonight to try out the 2016 Napa Cellars Cab for free. We think you’ll be shocked at how much Cab you’re getting for the money!
Food Pairing:This precocious Napa Cabernet is full of ripe fruit and warm oaky spice. As such it will best be paired with a meal that is similarly full flavored. A classic steak salad topped with seared New York strip, toasted walnuts, crumbled bleu cheese, and roasted beets would be a total win, especially if you could dress it with some homemade blackberry balsamic vinaigrette!
