Sommelier Selected Wine Pairings
2013 Neal Family Vinyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Neal Family Vineyards is a small off the beaten path family owned winery. Neal is located minutes to Angwin in the hills above Napa Valley in Howell Mountain Appellation. The picturesque winery is 1800 feet in elevation and surrounded by pine and oak forests. The higher elevation allows the Cabernet to become fully ripe, while the cooler nights help retain the wine's acidity. Neal utilizes oak aging to enhance the wine and not overpower. The result is a balanced and complex Cabernet.
Harmoniously balanced due to bottle age, the wine is elegant, delicate and nuanced. Aromas of cassis, cocoa and dark cherry with hints of earth and cedar. This balanced Cabernet, being a food favorite will hold up next to a robust ribeye but will also not overpower a delicate filet mignon. The tannic structure coupled with its red and black-fruit flavors will accompany your dinner beautifully!
