2007 JAQK Cellars 22 Black Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

My last sample from the fine folks at JAQK Cellars I saved just for the right food pairing. I'm a huge bacon wrapped filet fan and nothing better than a fine bottle of Cabernet to round out the meal. Big thanks to my San Diego wine pal Beau of Beaus Barrel Room for introducing me to this portfolio of awesome wine.

Wonderful aroma of blackberry starts your smelling pleasure. Red raspberry, a slight hint of oak, creamy blueberry follow and I could swirl/smell this wine all night long.

The wine is full full bodied and so tasty. The mouth fills with a dark berry sensation of blackberry, black raspberry and mellows with the blueberry. The middle here comes the juicy red raspberry, an earthy/leather combo and that slight touch of oak rounds out the finish. Really enjoyed how the layers of fruit flow from start to finish.

I encourage you to visit their website JAQK Cellars to learn more about the portfolio of wines they offer and to purchase some for your tasting pleasure. Excellent food friendly juice or to sip with friends I think you will agree they are excellent wines. Thank you again to the staff for allowing me to taste and learn more about your winery.
