Wine Corner Review #45: Two Dragons Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

In this internet-ruled, computer-driven age, the wine connoisseur relys on a website to give him primary information about the tipple he tips. However, sometimes information online can be hard to come by, principally with vintners who source their grapes, that is, buy them already grown and ripened to produce their wine. Thus, since there is no vineyard, sometimes these producers have no website. In this case, one usually turns to sources such as Robert Parker or to glean info. Imagine my surprise when, for the first time in my reviewing career, Googling failed me completely, and I was unable to find anything about today's wine under consideration, the Two Dragons Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.

The robe of the Two Dragons Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is rusted plum. The nose reveals red currant and dewberries. Lots of blackberries and rich, dark chocolate play sinfully upon the palate, resulting in an espresso finish. You can match this decadent delight with all matter of Greek food, particularly lamb gyros, and it should work well with game and hanger steak. Website is nonexistent, as stated above; if you can find one, then mister you're a better man than I. In any case, your local wine shoppe should be able to help you out and hopefully match you up with a bottle. Visit soon, and remember:
