Deliciously pure, rich and deep, our 2012 Aquinas Cabernet Sauvignon opens with fragrant aromas of cherry preserves, tobacco leaf, molasses and vanilla from the twelve months of American Oak aging. This supple wine features tiers of cocoa nibs, blackberry compote and cranberry reduction interlacing with harmonious notes of roasted hazelnut. The four percent Petite Sirah adds intense color and ripe blueberry fruit to the palate. This
wine shows tremendous depth with its balanced medium plus body and round supple tannins. It's a deliciously smooth Cabernet Sauvignon in the classic Napa Valley tradition.
Try pairing with herb-crusted lamb chops with celery root puree, braised short ribs with buttermilk mashed potatoes or a vegetarian option like fried tofu with spicy gingersesame sauce.
