Daglia Canyon Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013, California

My Rating 87 Points.   

Price $20.
It’s Friday again. Let’s get a Cabernet opened… 😀
Deep dark purple in color with a pretty purplish rim.

Inviting fruity nose of blueberries, blackberries, black currants, plums, bell pepper, cherries, oak, cola, light barnyard, vanilla, licorice, earth, peppercorn, leather, smoke, chocolates, green herbs and spices. Not a typical Napa Cabernet nose.

Medium plus on the finish with round tannins and raspberries.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, plums, cherries, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, earth, leather, green pepper, dark chocolates, tobacco, herbs, flat diet Coke, spices and peppercorn.

A nice everyday red wine from Napa Valley. Not very complex or interesting, but above average, nonetheless. Balanced and enjoyable by itself, right out of the bottle, but evolved some in the glass. Better after an hour in a decanter.

Good food wine too, that will pair nicely with BBQ Meats.

14% alcohol by volume.
