2007 Dry creek cabernet sauvignon

I had this wine as part of Winterlicous in Toronto at Pangaea Restaurant. This wine is dark in color with a nice nose of red berries and cherries. On the mid pallet the wine displays red berries and cherries to match the nose. Not as fruit forward as some but tasty. On the finish the wine is slightly tart with some acidity that fades as it breaths. The tannins are on the medium side. It’s medium in length. I would give it an 89.

Tasting Note
This excellent wine, which is made from the five classic Bordeaux varieties [80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec], shows the briary, tannic quality of Dry Creek Valley red wines. It’s a lusty, complex sipper with quite a lot of character and personality, and should provide good drinking over the next six years or so. Score – 90. (Steve Heimoff, Wine Enthusiast, May 1, 2011)
