Milat Estate 2005 Napa Cabernet Sauvignon

We visited Milat on our last Napa trip and found the owners to be charming, informative, educational…and also folks who take their winemaking seriously.  Their tasting room on rt. 29 is next door to Corison and you’ll often meet the actual owners who have been making wine there for years.  We learned all about the history of the valley while there in addition to tasting some great wine.  We opened this Cab last night and that big Napa fruit is ever-present, but without the tannins on the back end.  Think full cab up front and smooth oak on the finish.  A real easy drinking Cab that can easily stand on its own and a great (napa) value for $36.  There aren’t many Napa Valley Cabs that are all valley fruit for less than $50 at this quality level.
