During a summer trip to Napa Valley, I visited Regusci Winery and upon inquiring about vegan friendly wines, I was told by their winemaker that Regusci produces unfiltered and unfined wines making them vegan friendly.
I purchased a 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, which has been stored in my wine cellar until this weekend. The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is a purplish dark and cloudy wine with moderate, but complex aromas. The noticeable aromas include dark fruits such as blackberry and dark plums, raspberries, strawberries, and hints of vanilla.
Upon tasting the wine, I discovered the complexity of the wine had to be flavors of vanilla and smokiness, along with spices such as black pepper, cloves and nutmeg. I also detected hints of blackberry and black currant. This is an off dry wine, with a medium-full body and presence of round but medium tannins. The wine is fairly balanced with moderate flavor intensity. If you want a complex wine with hints of spices and dark fruits, but not too bold, then I highly recommend this Cabernet Sauvignon. I accompanied this wine with grilled asparagus and vegan Italian sausage that helped bring out the complexity of flavors.
