Sometimes, the best discoveries are made when you're not looking. And so goes the story of our exclusive Napa Valley cabernet sauvignon. On a sourcing trip to California, our wine experts weren't in the market for a cab, but when they sampled this exceptional 2012 vintage, there was no stopping fate. After a tough harvest the previous year, 2012 was outstanding for Californian vintners—ideal conditions yielded gorgeous grapes in abundance, making for exquisite wines like this one.
Bottled exclusively for FreshDirect Wines & Spirits, this delightfully versatile wine is enrobed in a deep garnet color and graced with a nose of blackberries, herbs, and red peppers. On the palate it brims with red currant, cassis, blackberry, and tobacco leaf flavors—all of which are given balance by chewy tannins, a touch of oak, and a hint of spicy cocoa. It's the perfect wine to complement a rack of lamb, grilled meat (especially steak), and blue cheese. We recommend allowing the bottle to breathe before serving.
