X Winery Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

“An extraordinary diva would never sit by herself.”  — John Lone

This is a wine fit for extraordinary divas and thirsty Wine Harlots.  A seriously sophisticated quaff.  The aroma of black fruit segues to the flavors of blackberry, black cherries, raspberry and spice on the palate with a lingering earthy toastiness on the finish.  This is a rich and delicious wine.  To complement the X Winery Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, the perfect pairing is Donna Hay’s Warm Chili Beef Salad with Coriander Pesto.

The details: 14.9% alcohol.  Cork closure.  Appellation: Napa.  The grapes are: 88% cabernet sauvignon, 10% merlot, 2% petit verdot. The suggested retail price is $25 USD and is available directly from the X Winery or through select distributors.  This was a media sample generously provided by the winery.

The music match is “Anything But Ordinary” by Avril Lavigne from the album Let Go.  Trust us, if a diva brings this  extraordinary wine to the party, she won’t be sitting by herself, she’ll be the center of attention.
