2007 Smith-Madrone Cabernet Sauvignon, Spring Mountain District, Napa Valley, CA, $45 (S) – Rating 4.2

Consistently one of the best Napa Cabs under$50,  especially for those who prefer a leaner elegant style. The wine offers an intriguing nose of dark cherry and blackberry with subtle smokey whiffs. On the palate expect well-balanced flavors of dark cherry, plum and blackberry with notes of briar and spice. Soft tannins and excellent food pairing acidity adds to the complexity along with hints of espresso in the long finish. Buy This Wine
