Sequoia Grove 2007 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

christmas wine 024

This Napa Valley gem was enjoyed while on a recent trip to the Dolphin resort in Orlando, Florida. Sequoia Grove is one of the top rated Napa wineries and their Cab is their flagship wine.

This is a full bodied wine rich with black cherry and currant flavor notes. It also has a touch of toastiness with smooth tannins. This Cab is blended with 12% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc. The wine spends 20 months aging in oak.

Sequoia Grove Winery sits on 22 acres right in the heart of the valley floor in an important region referred to as the Rutherford Bench. Their tasting room is housed in a 150-year-old barn, nestled among the majestic Sequoia trees.

Like its namesake, this is a majestic wine with loads of character. It retails for $38.
