22 Black

22 Black

2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Why 22? Well, there's the atomic number of Titanium, the stealthy F-22 Raptor, Catch-22, and the number of bones in your head. Start it off with 19 and you have the year that brought us Eskimo Pie, the Hollywood Bowl, Jack Kerouac, Ava Gardner, Charles Schulz, and Kurt Vonnegut. There's the fact that there are 22 balls in snooker, 22 players on a football field, and it's the number of the NFL's all-time leading rusher. There are also the classic roulette scenes in The Sting, Lost in America, and, of course, Casablanca. Number 22, one helluva number.

Viscous and round entry followed by lively acidity mingling with smooth yet firm tannins; the finish is long with mouth-coating tannins.

Black cherry, raspberry, milk chocolate, toasty oak, forest floor, violets.

Atlas Peak Cabernet Sauvignon is very structured and complex while Stag's Leap Merlot offers softness and balance to the blend. Hillside and bench-land grapes blend together creating a two-part harmony.

Hand harvested / 10-16 day macerations / gentle handling / 22 months in barrels / 3-day cold soak / minimal manipulation.

A wine as bold and charismatic as 22 Black is the perfect foil for rich, decadent culinary dishes such as espresso rub New York steak, beef bourguignon, Italian hearty Pastas w/ Oregano, Shitake Mushrooms, and Black Raspberry Sorbet.

Best cheeses: Camembert, Sharp Cheddar
