Corsair, Cabernet Sauvignon, 2008, Napa Valley

Nice, deep, dark.  Gorgeous.  Yes, this is what I mean when I call wines “romantic.” Or, especially, “sexy.” Nice dark berries, velvety tannic waves, just beautiful to sip.  Perfect for pairing with slightly spicy red pastas, or steaks, more richly garnished chicken dishes.  What do I say about 2008 as a vintage, other than I love it?  Just that, especially with Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa.  This is the négociant’d effort of Dan Dawson, 1StopWineBlogShop’s friend and owner of Back Room Wines, where I pick up most of my bottles.  This Cab, now after being open for a couple hours, handing me a set of smoky cocoa/caramel notes.  Successfully, successively seductive.  Only $45 dollars at Back Room Wines.  Can’t believe that price point with a Cab tasting this good, with fruit from “Stagecoach Vineyard” on Atlas Peak.  Full, ripe, elegant, distinguished.  Go get a bottle, or 12.  You won’t regret it!  This deserves a spot in even the most selective’s cellar.  Sip, sip …
