Araujo Cabernet 2008
Cabernet Sauvignon /14.8% ABV / Napa Valley, California, United States
Big & Bold Cabernet Sauvignon
Beef, Duck & Game Bird
This wine exudes heady aromas of black currant, blackberry and dark plum, enhanced by touches of anise, smoke, cinnamon and cola. In the mouth, the fruit notes are pure cassis spiced with nutmeg and sarsaparilla, leading to more earthy notes of loam, graphite and espresso. The wine is dense and concentrated but balanced, its core sweetness embraced by firm but silky tannins; the wine seems to dance across the palate into a lingering finish of spice and minerals. Notes winemaker Françoise Peschon: Beginning with soft creaminess on the attack, becoming powerful and rich in the mouth, and finishing with a supple sweetness, there is tension in this wine that holds your interest throughout. It is a wine of power, persistence and grace.View all products by Araujo EstateCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING
