Jana Winery 2005 Cathedral

Top 10 Steak Wines

Jana Winery 2005 Cathedral shows an excellent balance of acidity and tannin

Jana Winery 2005 Cathedral
Napa Valley, California

Winemaker Scott Harvey bottles his Amador County wines under his own eponymous label, while those from Napa are named for his wife, Jana. Composed of 92 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 4 percent Petit Verdot and 4 percent Cabernet Franc, the 2005 Cathedral definitely wows upon entry. Its intense, concentrated fruit flavors boast plenty of complexity and show an excellent balance of acidity and tannin. Match Cathedral with perfectly marbled wagyu beef or dry-aged Angus steaks.

Rating: 16.5/20
