Cakebread Cabernet Sauvignon

By J.T.

Sometimes you just need a little something extra to complement a special event.

A promotion. Completing a project. Winning an award. 

Or simply coming together around a holiday table. 

Cakebread Cellars in Napa (which I've visited!) has a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon that has all the elements of a great cab: luscious, dark, and rich. With complex dark chocolate and berry aromas,  it tastes of blackberry and fig, and has a long finish with smooth tannins. This would be delightful alongside anything beef or something with lots of umami, like a cassoulet. 

Splurge alert.

It's $65, but if you're looking for a memorable accompaniment alongside a great meal, this cab would be worth it.
