We stopped by Earl’s last night and the person beside me had a glass of this wine and it was so fragrant I got the waitress to bring a little over for me to try. Dark in color with a bold nose of red berries. On the mid pallet the wine displays classic California style fruit forward cab with lovely cherries coming through and a bit of sweetness. Almost jammy. On the medium length finish the wine displays some lovely dryness as well as fine tannins. This is a well made wine. I unfortunately didn’t take note of the year of the wine I would guess 2010. I would give it an 89-90. To my tastes this is not a cab sauv that will age long. I wouldn’t say more than 1-2 years. You’d just loose the bold fruit. Unfortunately not available in the LCBO. $15 a bottle at the winery or from the local rep Robert Groh and they list it for $22.95 in cases of 12. If your at Earls be sure and give it a try!
THOUGHTS FROM WINEMAKER DAVID READY, JR.
“The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is a wonderful expression of the
many appellations from which it is derived. Aromas and flavors
of blackberry and cherry with hints of th yme are expressed.
Merlot was folded into the blend to add depth and complexity.”
