2010 Verismo Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2010 Verismo Cabernet Sauvignon came from the Reverence Ranch vineyards in Coombsville. This Library wine is showing classic Napa qualities at over 9 years old! Closed and not revealing much when first opened, the blackberry, blueberry and red cherry fruit slowly revealed itself in the glass after 30 minutes. The acid is still very prominent, but the tannins are completely integrated, creating a luscious mouthfeel amid a delicious fruit presence. The wine is still very opulent and full bodied as Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon should be. The finish went on and on making this a great wine to sip over an hour or 2, so if you still have a few of these laying around I would enjoy them in the near term. Pair this with a classic Italian meal of garden salad, pasta Bolognese and a big, thick Florentine steak for your Primi! You can thank us later.
