Napa Redwoods Estate-Yates Family Vineyard-Cabernet Sauvignon-Mount Veeder-Napa-California-2008-14.5% Alcohol-$48.00-A bold nose of dark fruits and spice, dark garnet in color.  A medium to full bodied smooth Cab, with blackberry, currants, rich dark chocolate and spices on long finish.  A still very young Cab which is excellent now but will only improve with age, decant.  Seek out this small production winery.          WE-95          CR-94          Good with steak, chicken, pasta.
