Enlace 2008Napa Valley
Cabernet Sauvignon

Take a deep sniff, and you’ll be thinking turkey dinner at the Bradys. Cranberry sauce is the front runner here–and I don’t mean the homemade stuff. Think Grandma opening a can and sliding the gelatinous form onto the Princess House crystal serving boat.

Which totally belies every other characteristic of this luscious and refined wine. Yes, it’s lighter bodied compared to most Cabs, but Enlace has *so* much going on! Sophisticated, cultured, a touch courtly, maybe–don’t even *think* “big and jammy.” That deep, inky red color seems practically medieval, like papal vestments or royal robes. Surrender to the fruit-forward boysenberries; savor the dark chocolate and clove; let your tongue be seduced by the smooth tannins and leather; embrace the long, elegant finish. Enlace demands to be taken seriously.

    I totally agree with your analysis. For the price, this is one of the best bottle of Cabernets that I’ve had in a long, long time.

      I’m glad you liked it — every drop was delish. And thanks for reading! We’ve just started, and are trying to get ourselves on a regular schedule. Hope you will come back again.

      I think we found this at our local Costco for $15 or $20. I’ll try to check if they still have any next time I’m in there.

    […] Lisa was curious what this amazing bottle cost [link]. It turns out this is not a bottle you can just Google for and the cute UPS guy shows up and pours […]
