Paul Hobbs Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley – “The 2008 Napa Valley Cabernet derives substantial depth and breadth of character from the diverse terroir represented by these four hallmark vineyards. Concentrated aromas of black currant, mocha and tobacco leaves reveal themselves as this deep crimson wine opens in the glass. A dense, viscous palate coats the mouth with boysenberry, red currant, clove and cassis. Velvety tannins weave together with layers of vanillin, baker’s cocoa, anise and cedar to create a lengthy, expressive finish.”
Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars Artemis – “ARTEMIS, named after the Greek goddess of the hunt, is a wine that truly reflects its name. It’s the culmination of winemaker Nicki Pruss’ search for superior-quality Napa Valley grapes which, when combined with estate-grown fruit, meld into a Cabernet Sauvignon that mirrors the depth, structure and elegance of their limited-production estate wines. Whereas their Estate Cabernet Sauvignons showcase the distinctive characteristics of each vineyard, ARTEMIS demonstrates how astute grape selection and skillful blending can create a wine that represents the sum of Napa Valley’s best Cabernet Sauvignon parts.”
Brochelle Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa – “Brochelle is a tiny winery located on a Westside hilltop in Paso Robles. They craft wines that are a fascinating marriage of power and elegance. They take what comes from the vineyard and keep it simple and pure. This is a darkly rich, multi-layered, deliciously complex Napa Cabernet. This wine displays deeply an inky black color and has notes of anise, toast, vanilla, espresso, and black currants. Medium-soft tannins with a sensuous smoky oak essence. Shows great intensity intertwined with sweet black fruits holding center stage. This wine is big and rich with amazing texture and a long, extended finish.”
