2008 Gina Gallo Napa Cabernet Sauvignon

Back to my roots in CA with the 2008 Gina Gallo Napa Cabernet Sauvignon  with round 5 of the speed dating tasting. This retails for $40, a very reasonable price point for a Napa Valley Cab. It also has 7% Petite Verdot blended in. Small production at only 110 cases. On the nose I’m getting vanilla bean, bright black fruits with plums, cherries, and blackberries. In the mouth I’m finding it to be very juicy with nice blackberry and earth and good tannins on the finish, suggesting it could age for quite some time.

Bring me some Stilton and a cigar.
