Chasing Lions 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon, North Coast
The winery is in St. Helena in the heart of Napa Valley. Jim Ragusci of Ragusci Vineyards in Stag's Leap partnered with two other wine obsessed entrepreneurs to produce Chasing Lions and create great value Cabernet from North Coast vineyards in Napa and Sonoma. This 2011 is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petite Verdot, aged 10 months in French and American oak. It shows dark fruit aromas of black cherries, violets, and cassis. Blackberry, anise and raspberry notes enhance the bouquet. Drinks beautifully now but like its predecessors, the 2011 has the structure and finesse to allow it to develop for at least an additional 5-7 years. Don't miss it.

    Comments about Chasing Lions 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon, North Coast:

    With the pedigree that this Cab has, no wonder it has become one of the most consistent values that we offer. Lovely yet dense black cherry and blackberry fruit takes center stage with lacings of crushed violets, mint and vanilla. It is fairly lush and drinking well now, but the concentrated fruit and firm tannins on the finish let you know this will only get better over the next few years.

    • Pairs Well With:
    • Beef, Pizza and Pasta
