  • 2010 Del Rio Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon
    Vineyard: Del Rio Vineyards in Gold Hill
    Winemaker: Jean-Michel Jussiaume
    Recognition: 90 points from Wine Spectator
    Price: $28
    Case production: 700
    What it goes with: Steak or dishes with heavy butter cream sauce, cheese (cheddar, mozzarella and brie), bitter dark chocolate
    Tasting notes: This full-bodied cabernet sauvignon has tasty and complex tannins, woody aromas of vanilla and cedar, followed by hints of strawberry jam and prunes. It was aged in oak barrels for 10 months and shaped to be cellared through 2017. Sold out at Del Rio's tasting room, Jacksonville Inn sells it by the glass.
