Textbook (Jonathan & Susan Pey) Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

$27.99

Textbook is a small-produciton Cabernet discovery from the heart of Napa Valley's Oak Knoll District, sourced from a vineyard next to Dominus!  Beautiful Cab for a reasonable price - try it while its still available. A fantastic value.The Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon comes from two single vineyard sites located within the Oak Knoll and Yountville AVA's.  These ideal environments yield Cabernet Sauvignon with more structure and less flash than their warmer region brethren, and with a decidedly Bordelaise sensibility, witness some neighboring wines from Dominus and Grgich Cellars.  In addition to the Cabernet, a touch of Cabernet Franc adds great acid structure while the Merlot and Petit Verdot contributed to aromatics leading to a classic "Bordeaux" flavor profile.  We believe it is a "textbook" example of this noble variety grown in these outstanding appellations and that it can be enjoyed for several years to come.

Napa Cab under $25! For the price, totally worth it. Just know that you're value is in flavor, balance and finesse; not power or tannin. The wine isn't missing any component of a good bottle of Cab, it shows you small amounts in every category.

Starts off a little simple but it blossoms with 30 minutes in the glass. This is a medium-bodied cab with red-leaning fruit and good acidity. The nose is a bit compact and the finish is short, but this is otherwise a good buy for around $26. I'd drink it sooner rather than later, though, as it loses steam with extended aeration.

Really good Napa Cabernet for the price. Whilst the Textbook Mise en place Oakville, Napa was more complex, fruity, and overall solid Napa Cabernet, I just can't justify the price jump.

We had this on 9/2-3/19. This is a classic Napa Cab for a reasonable price. A full bodied wine with tastes of blackberry, blueberry, oak and cassis.
