Cade Napa Cuvee Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
This opaque and very dark purple colored Napa cuvee opens with an inviting blueberry bouquet with a hint of black cherry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, very nicely balanced, and smooth. The flavor profile is a very tasty plum and black cherry blend with a hint of red currant, mild oak and dash of black pepper. The finish is dry and its fine elegant tannins drift away nicely. I would pair this very refined wine with veal scallopini.
