Gabrielle Collection

Juxtaposition 2005

The magic relationship of wine and food

Juxtaposition means relationship; side by side; combination- a perfect name for the food and wine experience. Gabrielle envisioned a signature wine to delight foodies- velvet in the mouth yet elegantly balanced. The blend of Cabernet Sauvignon & Syrah was it! Chefs have juxtaposed this wine with a broad range of dishes and whether meat, poultry or fish, the dish was better because of the wine & the wine better because of the dish.

Varietal

75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Petite Syrah

The Wine

The 2005 vintage was an elegant vintage with beautiful balance.

Tasting Notes

A silky food wine has firm acidity, a moderate alcohol level and the oak and approachable tannins are balanced. A bold Cabernet Sauvignon with lively notes of black current, tobacco, a hint of nutmeg and Syrah’s attributes of leather, black pepper.

Vineyards

The vineyards are located in Oak Knoll District.

Food Pairing

The blend of Cabernet Sauvignon goes with so many dishes, from meat to fowl to the sea. And it is great to just sip! It complements rosemary roasted chicken, mashed potatoes with grilled leaks, BBQ ribs, Thai flavored vegetarian dishes, holiday turkey or just by itself….
