Salvestrin is a family affair that began way back in 1932, who was recently voted one of Napa Valley's Top 10 Small Undiscovered Wineries. Their Cabernet is fantastic, with everything you would expect from the varietal: Black cherry, blackberry on the nose, with a touch of spice. Full bodied, with supple tannin and a lengthy finish. At $49.95, which is unheard of for Napa Valley Cab prices, this is a wine not to be missed.
A dark-fruited nose with plums and blackberries, as well as black truffle and earthy notes. The palate has a supple and even thread of blueberry flavor and supple, layered tannins. A blend of 89 per cent cabernet sauvignon with some merlot, syrah and cabernet franc. Drink or hold.
