2006 Girard Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, 750ml

2006 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Malbec and 5% Petite Verdot

Napa Valley

The first release of our Napa Valley Cabernet.
We're sorry but this product is currently unavailable.
Our 2006 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon was created by our winemaker, Marco DiGiulio, to be a smooth, easy drinking Cabernet Sauvignon; however the wine does possess the desired acidic balance for proper food pairing. Special attention was paid in the following areas: the grapes were handled gently upon arrival at the winery to maintain whole-cluster integrity; a maceration process was used to minimize the tannin extraction; and finally, the wine was aged in a higher percentage of used barrels to minimize oak tannins.

The blend consists of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Malbec and 5% Petite Verdot. The aromas present lush notes of blackberry, kirsch, blueberry and very subtle notes of baking cocoa and spices. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied with supple, well-integrated tannins. Total cases made: 2636. This is the first release of our Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
