Tasting Notes:

For those fortunate enough to have previously purchased the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon from Sciandri Family Vineyards, the reward has been astonishing. Long the clandestine grape source for stalwart Cabernet producers, Coombsville is quickly rivaling Napa's Stags Leap and Rutherford AVAs. This current release is 100% estate fruit from vineyards cared for with the soundest environmental protection practices. Please note, the Sciandri Family ages their wines at the winery to ensure they're immediately gratifying upon receipt. 

A beautiful wine to inspect with its intense ruby red color. It possesses a vibrant nose with aromas of black and red fruits, rose petal, eucalyptus, earth and mocha. The palate is balanced with tame levels of alcohol making it ideal with food. Flavors of blackberry, plum, black cherry and currants are followed by minerality, spice, and that famous "Coombsville dirt". There is a lengthy medium-tannin finish with good structure and balanced acidity.

Food Pairing Suggestions:
The combination of balanced acidity, moderate alcohol levels and Coombsville dirt make this wine perfect to pair with food and goes with a wide variety of hearty meals. Bold reds deserve big, bold foods. Enjoy with lamb, beef, pork, sausage, grilled meats, stews, and game. Dishes with black olives, black pepper, pungent herbs, and mushrooms will also complement nicely. Hard cheeses and salami make a perfect accompaniment as well. Serve with dark chocolate for dessert.
