Uppercut Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, California
Broad shouldered and muscular, yet food friendly and approachable, our 2010 Uppercut Cabernet Sauvignon makes the perfect match for a sizzling steak. The wine's generous black cherry and blackberry aromas and flavors draw you in and then, with each swirl and sip, reveal complex hints of mocha, anise, tamari and mineral, plus a racy hint of smokiness. Well-structured tannins give this wine the backbone to stand up to boldly flavored foods, as well as a plush texture that carries the rich dark-fruit flavors through the lingering finish. This wine's multilayered personality is unmistakably Napa Valley Cab.
