JANUARY WINE FLIGHT

CABERNET SAUVIGNON

A trio of elegant and unique Cabernet Sauvignon wines, from three different and beautiful wine regions. $19

Catena High Mountain Vines Cabernet Sauvignon, 2019, Mendoza, Argentina
This beauty of a Cabernet comes from some of the highest planted vines in the western hemisphere, by a family famous for excellence in winemaking since 1902. A refined red wine, reminiscent of a Cab-heavy Bordeaux in its youth, showing barrel nuance from French oak, with tasting notes of black pepper, fresh herbs, a black cherry.

Textbook Cabernet Sauvignon, 2017, Napa Valley, California
A delicious Cab Sauv from the Pey Family who have been making Napa wines since 2004. Well structured, and balanced, showing aromatics of cedar, clove, and black olive, with refined tannins that leave a silky feel on the palate. Tasting notes of black fruits, vanilla, espresso, and toasty oak nuance. You want that next sip.

Novelty Hill Cabernet Sauvignon, 2018, Columbia Valley, Washington
This wine from the renowned Janiuk Family shows a very dark core — almost nighttime in the glass — and has aromatics that jump out of the glass. Assertive tannins, with a smoky start, lead into mouth-watering acidity and hints of mint-chocolate, eucalyptus, and subtle vanilla. Structurally the heaviest of the three wines, it still delivers a forgiving mouth-feel. A real stunner of a Cabernet from the New World.
