Vinum Cellars The Insider Cabernet Sauvignon 2014


SKU 22385


This medium plum Cabernet from the best "Big Red" grape areas of Paso Robles has concentrated aromas of cassis and boysenberry. The entry of this wine displays a very supple and plush texture with ripe black cherries, integrated vanilla and balanced French oak notes. After opening up, the wine reveals a vibrant Cabernet Sauvignon tannin structure which showcases both its backbone and age-ability while ending with rich plummy and ripe cherry fruit with cherry vanilla on the finish. Food Pairings: This Cabernet Sauvignon pairs very well with virtually any grilled meat from seasoned, spit roasted chicken and slow cooked pork such as Carnitas, it is perhaps best with a grilled New York or Flat Iron steak and frites (french fries). That said a steak salad with a mesclun of lettuces and roasted beets will do well for lunch. This wine is also just a really nice glass of Cab on its own as it is varietal and generous in its fruit, acid and tannin balance.

Wine EnthusiastBlack cherry and red cherry show on the nose of this bottling. Quite wound up and reductive at first, it needs time to open up past the tarry entrance. Dense boysenberry, cedar, leather and peppery spice hang from a chalky structure, presenting an impressively complete package at a fair price.
