La Storia 2006 Alexander Valley Cabernet

Wow, do I have a nice Cabernet to share with you?  Yes, I do…it is a 2006 La Storia Cabernet Sauvignon from Trentadue Winery in Alexander Valley.  The 2006 vintage is the first offering under the La Storia designation, but the winery touts the philosophy is still the same as always, to offer the best they can create.  I, for one would agree that they are indeed doing just that.  The best lots were used to make this rich Bordeaux style wine blended from 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, 8% Malbec, 6% Cabernet Franc and 1% Merlot.  Once blended the wine was aged 22 months in European Oak barrels.  The result is a medium to full bodied wine offering hints of ripe berry, cocoa  spice, oak and a hint of pepper.  Certainly a big Bordeaux style wine that could stand up to a nice steak, but with an crisp clean easy finish, I personally first tried this wine alongside a hamburger.  This wine was purchased at our local wine merchant just under $20 and worth every penny and more. Visit Trentadue Winery whenever in Geyserville, or at
