This weekend, we're featuring the king of reds - Cabernet Sauvignon -  from one of the world's most famous wine regions - Napa Valley, California.  Enjoy a 2-oz pour of all three for only $21 (a value of over $31).

2007 Tom Eddy "Elodian"
The 2007 Elodian Cabernet Sauvignon is a perfect representation of Napa Valley mountain cab. The aroma is invitingly complex with spice, leather and very subtle hints of lavender. Pervasive aromas of dark fruit also preside heavily on the palate with abundant blackberry and cherry flavors. Delving further into the wines complex nature, other traditional Cabernet flavors and aromas open up as anise commingles with understated vanilla derived from the new French, American and Hungarian oak barrels the wine was aged in. What truly separates this wine and makes it a classic is its sturdy structure and velvety, mouth-filling tannin. Great acidity brings the necessary balance to go great with food and for superb age ability. Drink now or cellar for up to 10 years and watch it evolve.

2007 J Moss Ponti Road, Rutherford
Dark ripe fruit of plum and black berry followed by a hint of dust, cedar and cigar flavors. This silky smooth complex Rutherford wine brings outstanding depth and body with medium tannins and a lush finish.

2009 Orin Swift Papillon
The wine has a very dense garnet hue with a slight stain of cardinal on the rim. Aromas of plum and cassis are built around soft French oak and cedar box nuances. The entry is intense, yet elegant with loads of boysenberry and dark fruit flavors. Well integrated tannin chains provide for a long, soft finish.  The fruit originates from some of Napa Valley’s most celebrated appellations including Howell Mountain, Saint Helena, Rutherford, and Oakville. 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot

Cost: $21
