Napa Valley, California

A successor to one of the wines that competed in the 1976 Judgment of Paris, the 2011 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon shows maturity and complexity. Smoky berry flavors and earthy aromas of cedar and clove entice upon entry. The wine reveals intense, ripe black cherry and blackberry flavors, a full-bodied mouthfeel and supple tannins. Try it with rack of lamb, pork loin or top sirloin.

Rating: 14.5/20
Price: $44
