Winemaker's Notes

Irony 2008 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon opens with fresh aromas of blackberry, blueberry and black licorice with a twist of peppermint, sage and savory dried herbs. This full-bodied wine delivers dark berry flavors, mixed with layers of vanilla, cocoa, chocolate, and a hint of earthiness. Lush fruit and balanced, lengthy tannins make this wine a perfect match for braised lamb shanks, soy marinated flank steak or chocolate mousse.
