Napa Valley, California
Twenty Rows Cabernet Sauvignon is an outstanding value among Napa Valley Cabs and a true red wine gem. A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot, 3% Cab Franc and 2% Malbec, the Cabernet grapes come from two vineyard sources in Napa--Howell Mountain and Stag's Leap. The Merlot comes from Oak Knoll. The Cab Franc and Malbec are sourced from Mt Veeder. Winemaker Brian Nuss emphasizes tannin management as an important factor in producing powerful, yet elegant wines. Twenty Rows Cab was chosen #1 Wine in October 2006 by Food & Wine magazine!
Twenty Rows Cab has a beautiful deep crimson color with penetrating aromas that begin with black cherries, dusty cocoa and roasting coffee beans. It is bright yet plush, with black cherry, blackberry, currant, vanilla bean and dark chocolate, all neatly layered for complexity. Firm, solid tannins provide good structure, weight and a great mid-palate grip. A long, tantalizing finish rounds out this beautiful wine.
Enjoy Twenty Rows Cabernet Sauvignon with a grilled steak, roast beef, sauteed Portobello mushrooms, or aged cheeses.
