Tasting Notes:

Sole proprietor Sue McNerney once made wine from her vineyards for friends and family only. Now she's producing exquisite award-winning, single varietal, single vineyard estate Cabernet Sauvignon.

This wine transports you to a little sidewalk cafe in France. Its lean flavors and acidity mimic the style of wines designed to complement rich food. The beautifully intense ruby color is concentrated from the center of the glass nearly to the edge. The aromas range from tart berries to herbs to black pepper. Flavors are well integrated with notes of black cherry, plum, currants, black tea, espresso, clove and black pepper. The tannins are softening due to age and the finish is long with hints of cola and dark chocolate.

Food Pairing Suggestions:
The climate and soils in the Coombsville AVA produce wines that are favorable for food. Pair with duck, beef, pasta with meat sauce, lamb, hamburgers and mushroom dishes. Serve also with hard aged cheeses like aged gouda and Parmesan. And for dessert, pair with any chocolate creation.
About the Winery
Le Chanceux Robert and Susan McNerney (a self-proclaimed francophile), moved to the Napa Valley and planted Cabernet Sauvignon vines on their estate property in 2002. Le Chanceux, pronounced luh shuhn sue, is rooted in family from the winery name, to the vineyard, and also to the wine itself. Le Chanceux means "The Lucky One"; a reminder to their three daughters, Lauren, Ellen and Jennifer, how lucky they were to be blessed to live in the beautiful Napa Valley, a destination where world class wines are produced.
