Textbook (Jonathan & Susan Pey) Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

$32.99

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.

"Textbook" Napa Cab at the $30 price point. Blackberry liqueur and licorice. Pretty nice seamless package and quite balanced if not lush. @Pignetti's Restaurant, Temple TX

I tried this based on our waiters recommendation. Always struggle going outside my wine box in a restaurant due to mark up. It is a lovely Napa Cabernet that meets expectations for a Napa Cabernet junkie like me

Good value for a tasty cab. Nothing too complex, but still a nice, well balanced number. Notes of cassis, some light pepper and mild tannins.

Bright and woody with lots of fresh berries. Well rounded, great with dinner (steak kabobs!) or by itself.
