Textbook (Jonathan & Susan Pey) Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

$29.99

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.

Incredible presence on the nose: big time Bordeaux notes but opens into a portal of Napa jammy red fruit greatness. Mature ripe red fruit yet maintaining a sturdy jammyness and fruity jamboree...an excellent Cab Sav! Pairs awesome with a steak or hearty meal!

Lots of fruit forward aromas and flavors of black berries and currants. Hints of cedar, chocolate and earth. The big fruit makes the wine taste a bit sweet. Nice structure and balance. Not too heavy, and quite smooth.

Got a screaming good deal on this wine ($11) so for the price I was very satisfied. Mouthfeel and fruit are there. Not super complex but a solid cab that can stand on it’s own. I would buy a lot more if I found it close to my price. If it were $40 I wouldn’t be as enthusiastic.
