Tasting Notes:

If you picked up some of J. Doran Vineyards 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon earlier this year, here's a great opportunity to compare two respective vintages by a winemaker who allows mother nature to shape the outcome of his wine. Of special note is that the 2010 had a little Merlot while the 2011 is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from George III Vineyard.

"True to its vintage roots, the palate is powerful & concentrated yet also shows an amazing mouth feel. Blackberry & other briary fruits glide across the palate while carrying hints of dark chocolate cedar & sandalwood."

About the Winemaker:
About the Vineyard:
Georges III Vineyard is a famed "Beckstoffer" Vineyard and is located in the highly sought after Napa Valley AVA of Rutherford. J. Doran Vineyards' 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon is in great company as this vineyard also provides fruit for such stellar wines as Duckhorn, Shrader, Myriad, SojournAlpha Omega and Caymus.
Additional Winemaker Notes:
Three day cold soak, slow destem & hand sort at crush with a Saignée, a method of removing some of the juice from the must in order to more deeply concentrate the wine. Aged 32 months in French oak barrels.
Food Pairing Suggestions:
This wine will stand on its own but shows beautifully with food. Pair with beef, pasta with meat sauce, lamb, hamburgers and mushroom dishes. Serve also with hard aged cheeses like aged gouda and Parmesan. And don't forget to try it with dark chocolate.
