As the Cafaro Family Vineyard matures, it shows the intensity and layered flavors that produce great Napa Valley reds. The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon marries complexity with balance to produce a wine that is rich, lush and concentrated. With an intensely dark blackberry color, this wine begins with red berry fruit up front and finishes with tobacco and smooth tannins. This Cabernet Sauvignon pairs incredibly well with a plethora of food options.
