Call it a “Best Buy”, “Customer Favorite”, or whatever, WORTHY SOPHIA’S CUVEE continues to be a Top Selling Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon blend, and rightly so. The wine offers a luscious, full-bodied, and concentrated red wine experience that is a proven “crowd pleaser”, at a nominal price point.
2010 SOPHIA’S CUVEE
CABERNET SAUVIGNON, NAPA
WORTHY is the second label for Axios Cabernet which retails for approximately $165/btl. SOPHIA’S CUVEE is more than an impressive bargain at just $24.99/btl, delivering everything you could possibly desire in a Napa Valley Cabernet. At this modest price point, an earlier vintage of Sophia’s Cuvée was recognized as the #42 Wine in the World on the Wine Spectator’s Top 100 wines.
Composed by legendary winemaker Bob Egelhoff, whose unique experience includes holding positions at such notable wineries as Pahlmeyer, Harlan, Chappellet, Merryvale and David Arthur.
After spending 20 months in French oak, this wine has reaped the rewards from over 3 years development inside the bottle, furnishing the wines profound bouquet and smooth texture.
If you love big, rich, concentrated Napa Cabernets, you won’t want to miss this offer. At just $24.99/btl, this stellar Cabernet represents a level of quality rarely available at this price!
“Complex aromas of blackberry, black cherry and cassis…The mouth feel is rich and smooth with supple tannins. Impeccably balanced with a long, focused finish.”
Along with those delicious cookies or fruit cake you spent hours baking over a hot oven, bring an impressive bottle of wine to that Holiday Party or Family gathering. Have a case of red and a case of white wine by your door, so it’s handy to grab a bottle or two on your way out the door! (Note: “Impressive” doesn’t necessarily mean “expensive”.)
More About WORTHY SOPHIA’S CUVEE
Since The Wine Spectator gave the overall 2010 vintage for Napa Valley Cabernet a whopping 96 points, they are becoming increasingly scarce and consumers have been seeking them out! The beauty of this wine is that it’s ready to enjoy, yet has another 5-10 years of cellaring potential.
When Ben Giliberti of the Washington Post tasted an earlier vintage of the Sophia’s Cuvée, he made a statement that “…Had I been served this wine blind, I’d have pegged it at no less than $60. Frankly, I doubt there is a Cabernet in the price range that can touch it right now.” Judging from this 2010, as well as previous vintages I’ve tasted, this appears to be the trend with WORTHY Cabernets.
Crafted by one of Napa Valley’s most talented winemakers, this is an outstanding opportunity to add a true treasure from the 2010 vintage to your cellar. This wine is absolutely gorgeous now, and will continue to evolve for another 5 to 10 years.
