Maroon Wines - Douaihy Family Special Reserve 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon
Region: Yountville, Napa Valley, CA
This nearly opaque wine is such a beautiful, rich garnet in color. Give it a few good swirls and admire its slowly dripping, viscous legs in your glass – perhaps a Bottega del Vino crystal stem you earned during our holiday promo?
I would suggest allowing the wine to breathe for 45-60 minutes in order to fully enjoy its aromatic depth. Early aromas of fresh blackberry and black cherry fruit are present, but not overbearing. Cinnamon stick, vanilla, and mocha aromas follow with subtle notes of dried herbs, red licorice and a touch of sweet oak. While young, its gripping, medium tannins already show good balance with the prominent acidity and fruit components. Its dark fruit and cocoa flavors lead to a refreshing, medium/long finish that easily encourages the next sip.
