Calistoga Cellars 2005 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Made from 85% Cabernet Sauvignon aging in French oak barrels for 18 months, then 15% Merlot added to the final bottled blend. This rich deep rose colored Cabernet from Napa, California is full-bodied, clean and smooth. On the nose wafts chocolate, oak and herb. Great flavors are revealed as plum, tobacco, and intense cherry do a tap dance on the tongue. Extremely concentrated and complex with an alcohol content of 14.9% and a price tag of $25-35. Would pair really well with a steak au poivre.
