2010.thegent.cabPondl 2010 “The Gent” Cabernet Sauvignon

Fruit is sourced from Suisun Valley. Not a common place to grow your grapes but being only 30 miles east of Napa Valley, why not? It’s a small valley near the eastern edge of the San Francisco Bay Delta. Chocolate notes and dark red fruit. Smooth, easy tannins on the tongue.  Basic and linear. Short finish.

Retail: $22.00

Winemaker Notes: “The aristocrat of reds, this Cab is rich in color; chocolate and a hint of smoke, on the nose. Smooth mouth feel, light tannins and full bodied; black currants, oak and jammy on the palate with a white pepper finish. Goes well with beef, lamb, rich cheeses and of course – chocolate! This Cab is classy and well mannered – debonair as a Gent.
