Tasting Notes:

This vineyard was initially sourced for Tudal Winery in 2004 by Nils Venge – a Napa Valley legend catapulted into place after being the first to receive the highest honors of a 100 point score from wine critic Robert Parker for his 1985 Groth Vineyards Cabernet Reserve. Now in the hands of Ron and Rudy, this talented winemaking team has received accolades and recognition for many Clift Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon vintages over the years. 

A luxurious dark ruby wine, condensed and opaque at the center, this wine first presents with aromas of blackberry pie, cigar box, cedar plank, and dried herbs. While the juicy blackberry flavors continue through to the palate, boysenberry, black cherry cola, cacao and dried fruits can also be detected. The tannins are smooth and the finish is absolutely delightful. The intermingling of the flavors and aromas make this a marvelous wine to explore. Enjoy!

Food Pairing Suggestions:
It is rare that you'll find a Cabernet Sauvignon that doesn’t need food, but here it is! That said, it will also work with a range of dishes. With grill season at its height, give your favorite smoked and grilled meats a whirl. Cabernet Sauvignon will compliment the smoky notes while bringing in sweet notes of lush fruit, black pepper and savory flavors. Or try with steak tacos, roasted lamb or pappardelle with beef bolognese. If you are building a cheese plate, think hard and aromatic - sharp cheddar, Roquefort, Blue, Gouda.
