Wine Recommendation

Flying Wine Cellars

2006 Cabernet Sauvignon, Ink Grade Vineyard
(Howell Mountain ~ Napa Valley)

This wine will be aided greatly by decanting to blow off some of the bottle stink. But once the cheesy aroma dissipates what a wonderful wine it is with lovely fruit and balance. It’s also thrillingly complex from one of the better vineyards and one of the best regions in California.

The Reviewer

Alan Goldfarb

Alan Goldfarb has been writing about and reviewing wine for 17 years. His reviews have been published in the St. Helena Star, San Jose Mercury, San Francisco Examiner, Decanter, and Wine Enthusiast, among others. Not once has he used a point system, star system, or an iconic symbol to quantify a wine. What counts in Mr. Goldfarb’s criteria when judging a wine is: how it tastes in the glass; is it well-constructed; its food compatibility; and presence of redeeming regional attributes.
