Handwritten Wines

 

Handwritten 2010 Napa Valley Cabernet

With rich earthy undertones of saddle leather and cigar box balanced by sweet fruit notes of macerated blackberries and dried lavender, this mature cabernet has everything going for it. The tannins have slowly melted away into velvety perfection and the finishes lasts for what seems like an eternity. As a well aged Cabernet often does, this wine will pair with a myriad of dishes including braised short ribs and grilled pork chop.

Harvest & Tasting Notes:

Classic, pure and focused, the 2010 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, primarily comprised of Rutherford fruit, offers a slightly lighter body than that of its fellow Handwritten wines in this vintage. Elegant aromas of cocoa nib, black tea leaf and violet are well complimented by ripe fruit and smooth tannins on the palate. Enjoy now with a firm decant of up to three hours or cellar for five to seven years.
