The 2006 Eponymous Napa Valley Cabernet offers scents of ripe plum, violets, berries, currants and spice that are well-integrated. Held to the light, this elegant wine shimmers with a stunning deep purple-scarlet color that announces the intensity of the grapes. The palate is equal to the lush color and bold aromas. Flavors mimic the nose, with added nuances of roasted coffee bean and nutmeg. This Napa Valley Cabernet is rich, full and round from the initial taste and continuing as it fills the mouth, leading to a long, lingering finish. It has tremendous presence and yet, is in wonderful harmony with soft, accessible tannins adding appropriate structure to this alluring wine.
Serve at room temperature with red meats, lamb, cheeses.
