Napa Valley, California

The oldest wine on our list of Top 10 Steak Wines 2014, Robert Craig's 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon is complex and unusually high in alcohol. It displays aromas of blackberry and cassis with notes of chocolate and tobacco, while its fruit-forward palate offers flavors of mocha and licorice with a long finish and supple tannins.

Suggested Cut: Smoky notes of dark fruit and vanilla mean it will accompany a thick slice of pot roast or Sunday brisket to perfection.

Rating: 16/20
Price: $70
