A blend of grape sourced from acclaimed sub-regions including Rutherford and Oakville, Wine Spots Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is supple and elegant, offering a rich array of cherry, currant, blackberry, cedar and chocolate notes. Aged in French oak to bring out balanced, silky tannins.
Enjoy with grilled steak, hearty red meat dishes, lamb chops, and strong cheeses.
"The upside of the recession
is that wines this good are being sold for lower
prices, which is great news for consumers. This Cabernet,
basically a négociant’s blend, is really delicious. It’s
rich, dry, tannic and lush in blackberry and cherry tart,
chocolate and smoky cedar flavors.
Very nice Cab. Would purchase again.
A delightful mix of fruit and berry flavors. Hints of chocolate. Very elegant and balanced with smooth tannins. The 2006 vintage was good, but the 2007 is even better!

Wine Spots is interesting in that rather than a single vineyard, they go to various spots known for great wines and work with local producers to come up with a wine that vividly illustrates what makes that spot great for wine, hence the Wine Spot! Well lucky for me, this particular bottle seeks to show the best of Napa Valley in a bottle of Cab, perfect for #CabernetDay!This wine was made with a blend of grape sourced from acclaimed sub-regions including Rutherford and Oakville, so it should be pretty good right? Well, I won't leave you in suspense any longer, it is indeed VERY good! The nose is an interesting combination of lush fruit, leather and a hint of a light floral scent. The mouthfeel is big and luscious, with lots of velvety tannins for a long finish. The taste bursts forth with blackberry and cherry, with a woodsy sort of background, and despite the early fruit, the wine is actually quite dry, really showing the greatness of Napa Valley Cabs.
