Peter Paul Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

Peter Paul Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2004 is an excellent Napa Valley Cabernet that can be had for under $20. This intense, delicious wine is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes that come primarily from famous grower Andy Beckstoffer's Georges III and Melrose vineyards. All the fruit is from either Rutherford or St. Helena.

In your glass, you will see deep purple color. A beautiful bouquet of blackfruit is dominated by blackberry and cassis with much of the same on the palate. This full bodied, classic California Cab is balanced out by smooth, silky tannins.

I should also not that there is actually a Peter Paul who owns this winery, and it is not 2/3 of a sixties folk group. Mr. Paul made his fortune in financial services before getting into the wine business, and today he donates a good portion of the proceeds from his winery to his charitable foundation which focuses on underprivileged children.

So go get a bottle or six of Peter Paul Cabernet. It's a very good Napa Cab for under $20, and some of your money will also make its way to charity. You can't lose with this one!
Serve with grilled steak or venison for a great pairing.
