The nose was full of huge ripe berry starting with wild cherry, blackberry, raspberry and blueberry. Hints of toasty oak followed by spice prepares you for the taste. Screams Cabernet! Really enjoyed swirling and sniffing.
Full bodied and fit for a pirate. Blackberry, cherry, raspberry followed by spice which warms you nicely. I uncorked the wine 2 hours before the show allowing breathing time. The aromas and flavors open up showcasing the beautiful fruit the longer in the glass. Bold yet elegant.
Scott another fine selection in wine. The show is full of fun wine facts plus another cool guest, winemaker Heidi Barrett. Stop by Cellars of Sonoma for the new 2009 vintage and you just might hear Heidi proclaim, "Drink Up, Me Hearties, Drink Up The Fabled TreasureRed.... Unless You be Lily-Livered."
