2013 Mario's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

This one was opened in a restaurant and decanted for about 45 minutes. It was extraordinarily elegant as a cab, bolder and more powerful than even the description would indicate. I opened it along with a $145 Cab from a competing Napa Valley winery and a $100 Cab from yet another and this wine beat them out. The food was elegant Spanish tapas with Paella and it held up brilliantly. I cannot overstate how elegant this wine is and how it matches/exceeds the best that Napa has to offer.
