Parallel Napa Valley Cabernet

PARALLEL NAPA VALLEY Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

(Napa Valley, CA) $130

In 1999 four couples who shared a love of Napa Valley wine did what friends (you have to be really good friends) sometimes do: they started a winery together. Parallel Napa Valley (named after the parallel course that their lives took and an homage to skiing, which the couples also loved) makes distinctive small lot Cabernets from vineyards in the heart of the valley—Oakville and Rutherford. This Cabernet—their “regular” one, not the reserve—is juicy, lively, complex, sleek, and intense. The texture is all silk and velvet. 2019 was a top vintage for many Napa wines—as you’ll see if you lay in a bottle or two of this gem. And while the wine is not inexpensive, we think it delivers more than a slew of other Cabernets that cost nearly twice as much.
