With a case (12 bottle) purchase of the 2011 Mario Bazán Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon, the winery will substitute the 12th bottle with their extremely limited production 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon, a special single vineyard wine typically reserved only for their wine club members.

Tasting Notes:

This wine is a departure from the bold, fruit-driven, highly concentrated Cabernets for which the Napa Valley is known. A deep, translucent brick red in color, its nose shows a depth of aromatics, led by wild berries, ripe plum, black cherry, bell pepper and mineral notes. As it opens, it teases with subtle layers of bakeshop spices like clove and cinnamon and a hint of dried herbs and dark flower. The palate offers gripping tannins, a mouthwatering acidity and a long, lingering finish which softened pleasantly during a tasting the following day.

Not only is it fantastic in the glass, the label tells a great story. Indicative of the wine’s elegance and a reflection of Mario’s remarkable background, it is inspired by two of the most common elements – birds and flowers – seen in the traditional costume worn by the Oaxacan women. His life prior to arriving in the Napa Valley is reflected in the watermark and the natural color palate of the label, typical of the white plastered walls and vibrant terracotta tile roofs from adobe houses in his hometown of Oaxaca.

Food Pairing Suggestions:
For the meat lovers, give this Cabernet Sauvignon a whirl with a nicely marbled NY strip, roasted pork shoulder or a burger topped with cheddar. We also love it paired with a caramelized onion and mushroom polenta or a grilled portabello with a side of rich mac and cheese.
