My Personal Wine Recommendation For You
Insane Value For Money
I Taste Many Wines To Find A Napa Cab This Good At This Price

As you can tell I absolutely flipped for this wine when I tasted earlier this week. This is the kind of wine that makes the hunt for great wine so satisfying because it is just damn good. Napa Cabernet lovers you will absolutely love this wine. My favorite aspect of writing to you about this wine is that it has no press, ZERO. The 2010 Banshee Napa Cabernet is brought to us by Baron Ziegler who is a disciple of Eric Solomon, importer of some of the greatest wines coming in from Europe. Ziegler with his contacts in Napa and the economic downturn was able to source incredible fruit to go into his Banshee Cab in 2010. The 2010 vintage in Napa was a cooler vintage so he focused more on vineyards from Rutherford and Oakville which are on the valley floor and cut back on Mountain fruit which he gets from Howell Mountain. They aged in New French oak and the results are fantastic. This is a showy Cabernet, many of you have loved our Chloe Cabernet which is currently sold out. This is your wine! The wine is that very style, rich and concentrated, awesome dark fruit but all cashmere, silk and satin. This could be just a one-off for these guys because it is just so good but time will tell. Jump in head first on this one. I could only secure so much……

Banshee Cabernet 2010 Napa; CA Bttl $37.99 Cs Btll $34.99

Tasting Notes: Its black/purple color is accompanied by a glorious bouquet of blue and black fruits, acacia flowers and wild berry fruit touched by toasty oak and spice box wrapped in a full-bodied, rich, stunningly proportioned, pure style. This classic Cabernet is the quintessential model for Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. The tannins are sweet enough that it can be drunk now, but it should evolve easily for a decade. Insane Cab for the money!
