2008 Thirst Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley$44.95 -- 2008 Thirst Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
A Note from J.T. Snow : For 13 years I gave back to baseball, today I am giving back beyond the field. In 2010 my niece Raquel was diagnosed with a rare disease – Wolfram syndrome. Dedicated to raising funds to support researchers at Washington University School of Medicine working to stop the progression of this disease, a portion of proceeds through “THIRST” will be donated to the Jack and J.T. Snow Fund at Washington University in St. Louis. Please join us by raising a glass, thank you for your support.
Nice aromas of ripe, dark berries and hints of chocolate and coffee on the nose. On the palate, the wine is medium bodied and expresses a nice balance from the attack through the finish. We find the layers of dark berries and chocolate and light acidity that adds a juicy vibrance to the finish. This wine will be a very versatile compliment to a variety of dishes. Drink now through 2015. 88% Cabernet Sauvignon 9 % Petit Verdot 2 % Petit Sirah 1 % Zinfandel
This was an enjoyable wine that we put together as it incorporates some varietals that our dear friends at Maroon Vineyards, where we sourced the grapes, they have not historically blended together. The Cabernet Sauvignon base of the blend was medium bodied and exhibited dark and ripe berry fruit, both aromatically and on the palate. With that said, we felt this Cabernet lent itself to the blending in of the more muscular and firm Petit Verdot, which provides structure and a nice tannin framework to the blend. The small amounts of Petit Sirah and Zinfandel add a nice touch of spice to the aromas and finish.
