Respite 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley

Respite’s 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon is the much-anticipated first release from Respite Wines, and it has the Reichel family very excited! Incredibly limited production and celebrated for its superstar winemaking team, this beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon is an impressive inaugural vintage from Respite’s ultra-boutique winery. The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon was recently awarded 91 Points by Wine Enthusiast magazine: “A lovely Cabernet that shows the soft tannins and earthy herbaceousness of Alexander Valley. On a fruitier note are the cherries and red currants that are accented by sweet, smoky oak. Spicy and dry, this polished wine wants a few years in the cellar.” Deep reddish purple in color, Respite’s Cabernet is bursting with bright cassis, mocha, black raspberry, tobacco and dusty spice box flavors. The mouthfeel shows off the excellent structure and beautiful balance of the wine and its refined elegance makes it an immediate favorite. Try pairing with lamb chops, blue cheese crusted filet mignon, and hearty casseroles. [+]
