Brand new release of of Napa Valley's hottest new Cabs!  Philippe Melka (Bryant Family, Hundred Acre, Vineyard 29) handcrafts this beauty from Howell Mountain fruit.  Get it while its still here. The 2010 Parallel Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is a blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, and 1% Petite Verdot. The fruit sources underlying this wonderful wine are from vineyards in St Helena, benches adjacent to lower Howell Mountain, Combsville, and the upper elevations of Conn Valley.  The wine reveals a deep ruby color; the bouquet is complex, gorgeous, full of intense aromatics of, acacia flowers, black currants, truffle, liquor of cassis and red cherry. Lush, supple and round in the attack, the wine carries on with harmony and depth finishing with ripe, soft tannins and aromas of creme de cassis, fresh red fruit and crushed stones and more.

Long week - no wine. A little treat. Classic Napa cab. Great depth. Probably at its prime now.
