Top 10 wines in the US press

Both Dave McIntyre and Sandra Silfven recommend Napa Valley Cabernets, McIntyre’s pick “shows delicious fruit and elegance, balanced throughout” while Silfven’s is “rich, smooth, powerful and approachable.”

US PressMcIntyre featured six Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignons, he wrote in the Washington Post that a classic Napa Cab Sav “should feature flavours of blackberries and currants and — increasingly rare — a minty quality that tastes cool, for lack of a better word.”

He added: “Too many today taste only of wood, tannin and alcohol; in other words, hot flavours. Unfortunately, Napa Valley Cabernet of any quality will not be cheap. The cost of vineyard land averages $180,000 per acre and climbs as high as $300,000, according to the Napa Valley Vintners trade association. No wines made on such land can be priced inexpensively.”

In the Detroit News Silfven wrote that her choice is “a soft beauty that charms the nose and palate with its dark cherry, plum, blackberry personality.”
