This wine continues to mature and is really delicious, especially when going up against a big rib-eye. Plum and blackberry lead the fruit. Earth, smoke, leather and pepper with a great cab finish. Decanted about 2 hours and this was ready to go. We really enjoyed this.

(Parallel Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley) Since the first vintage of Parallel, this wine has made remarkable progress. The 2006 shows great complexity from its multiple fruit sources throughout the valley. This Cabernet offers a delicious combination of red and black fruit tones with a brightness that makes it approachable today, but shows structure for the future as well. The currant and blackberry flavors are fresh, not overripe, and the style reminds me of the Old World—a refreshing alternative to most Napa producers. Winery Spotlight: Parallel Napa Valley
