2011 Vinum Auri Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
Vinum Auri is Latin for "Wine of Gold" and it is just that!
Aromatics layered with ripe fruit of blackberries and currants with a hint of cinnamon. This full-bodied wine is both broad and savory with a bold, yet elegant, body. The ripe, dark berries, black currants, spice, mocha and subtle oak are pleasing on the palate. It is a well balanced wine with complexity
and richness reserved only for top-notch Napa Valley Cabs.
This Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon will cellar for at least 15 years and beyond.
I don't know how he does it, year after year, but Vic Bourassa continues to craft exceptional wines that are pure gold!
