Customer Reviews for Nadia Winemaker's Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
Review 1 for Nadia Winemaker's Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
The Nadia Winemaker's Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 is actually a blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 7% Merlot. As such it was different from your typical California Cab's and these added grapes provided some extra depth and complexity to the overall taste. Its nose offered up the aromas of black fruit, cigar box, and a touch of smoky vanilla. We decanted our bottle for the recommended hour and this help to soften up the wine and bring out more ripe fresh fruit flavors. It also helped to tame down the initial alcohol bite which I got during my first sip out of the bottle. We enjoyed our bottle with some grilled New Yprk Strip steaks and it was a good pairing.
