2004 Napa Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon
(USA, California, Napa Valley)
Wow this was a surprise based on the price. This Napa Cellars Cabernet is way under priced. You can buy from their site at $29.00 but in my opinion this is a $60 wine. This is a define try for the money.
Color was a darker lavender. The nose had a little heat on it and the alcohol was coming out. The fruits were standard and had hints of cherry and lighter berries. A little spicy on the nose. The palate was smooth and not too hot. Little alcohol coming through in a way that I don’t think that this wine will age too well. 14.3 on the alcohol. Balanced taste with a longer than expected finish. Smooth with berries, little chocolate, oak, vanilla, and it had a fresh crisp feel. Classic feeling cab. This wine is not a blow your socks off wine but very good quality for the money and is definitely a pop and drink wine. Try this wine and get your hands on what you can. 14,000 case production on this. Small family vineyard.
