Day #299 of the year.

Cakebread Cellars Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

It’s Sunday and what a perfect day for National Greasy Food Day and World Pasta Day! With temperatures dropping, the stress of the work week and home-schooling the kids, what better way to end it than with a comforting family meal. Get your hands dirty and have fun making fresh pasta with the kids, while you are at it pull the deep fryer and make some gooey zeppole with the leftover dough. I plan on preparing a Fritto Misto courtesy of Bon Appetit, paired with a deliciously crisp white wine, followed by a Short Rib Ragu and tagliatelle ala Giada di Laurentiis. To compliment the hardy Ragu, I have selected a luscious and herbaceous 2018 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from Cakebread Cellars – Cheers!

ORIGIN

Napa Valley, California

Grapes

Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting Notes

Ripe boysenberry, dark cherry and cassis, coupled with scents of sweet oak and herbal spice, introduce plush, deeply concentrated, black fruit flavors bolstered by bright acidity and well-structured tannins. This classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon boasts a long, lovely finish featuring savory fruit, spice and mineral tones. Delicious now, it will age gracefully in bottle for another 7-10 years.
