BNA Wine Group The Rule Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

$19.99

  One of the best $20 Cabernets from Napa Valley we've discovered this year - highly recommended. There are expectations of Napa Valley Cabernet. A specific set of rules' must be followed. The grapes must be picked at a certain sugar range, fermented at the exact temperature for a certain amount of time, and rest several months in the perfect combination of oak barrels. We follow all of the rules, except we break the one rule most wineries won't... the price.. The Rule Cabernet pairs well with beef, duck and distinctive cheeses, such as Camembert, Danish Blue and Grafton Village cheddar.

#Napa Cab blend (small amounts). Nose of strawberry, currant and vanilla. Palate of red berries and black cherries. Good balance. Drink soon.

Starts off with lots of power. Softens a bit once it airs out. Very good!

Not a strong nose but a pleasant one of vanilla and tobacco. High acidity but it carries itself well. Mostly dark fruits with some cedar. After breathing for a while, you should get a bit of spice, as well. This is Napa so it's got all of that Napa-ness going for it. It's just a baby and could wait a few more years, but it's still worth opening now.

2012 somewhat sweet. Isn't as bright and green as other young cabs. Very drinkable.
