About This Wine

Quiz time: Name California’s No. 1 tourist destination.

Okay, that wasn’t so hard; Disneyland has been No. 1 since the year it opened. Here’s a more challenging question: What is California’s No. 2 tourist destination? No, it’s not Knott’s Berry Farm. Nor is it Sea World, or the San Diego Zoo. Give up? It’s Napa Valley wine country.

And that can mean only one thing: There are a whole lot of people who love Cabernet Sauvignon, because Napa Valley is the Cabernet capital of the United States — and, some say, the world. The French certainly would disagree with that latter assertion, but it’s tough to disagree with the opinion that Napa Cab is world-class in every way.

Take the 2008 Block 478 Cabernet Sauvignon, as an example. It’s a rich, engaging wine, brimming with fruit-, earth- and oak barrel-driven aromas and flavors. It’s the kind of wine that makes one wonder whether Disneyland will always be No. 1.

About Cabernet Sauvignon

Deep color and richness with the potential to age a long time, and better still if aged in oak before bottling. Classic flavors blackcurrant, plum, cherry and spice. The most popular varietal of red wine in America.
