A Fab Cab

No formal review today, just a quicky wine suggestion.  On our recent vacation, we stopped overnight in Roanoke, Virginia on our way home in order to break up the 9 hour drive.  We ate at Le Bistro, a fabulous little restaurant in downtown Roanoke, choosing to do the Chef’s Tasting Menu.  One of the wines was the 2006 Annabella Napa Valley Cabernet.  The Annabella retails for as low as $11 on the internet and you should get some.  It is hands down the best sub-$20 Cab I’ve had, and it hails from Napa!!  I recall it being elegant and refined, this was not a knock you down and kick you while you’re on the ground Cab.
I had to learn more about it after we got back, and discovered that Annabella is a line from Michael Pozzan.  Supposedly the wines are limited production and allocated?  But 27,000 cases were made of the 2006 Cab and I see it is easily available on the internet, so scoop it up and enjoy this gem.
