This Cab is out of Napa Valley, and retails for around $35. While is on the higher end of the wines we are reviewing today, it’s original label retails this wine at over $120! In my opinion, this wine is a must-have for that reason alone.
Bouquet: A hint of licorice with black cherry and maybe plum
Tasting Notes: Full of ripe berry, a lot of richness, and great tannins. Best if decanted before drinking (I did mine for 30 minutes). It is very smooth, with a long, full finish.
Overall, I LOVE this wine. It is by far my favorite of all the wines I sampled in this Cameron Hughes Wine Review. Not a surprise, since Cabs are my favorite. This boldness of this particular cab is so delicious, and wonderful to enjoy.
I may or may not go buy an ENTIRE case of just this wine before it runs out, so that I can age a few of the bottles. SO YUMMY!
