Alpha Omega Red Bordeaux Blend Rutherford Era 2006

Member Review by Eric Guido:

Layers on the nose with cherry liquor, cinnamon graham cracker, black licorice and a bit of oak. Big dark red fruit and spicy on the palate but streamlined by a great balance of acidity. Great mix for this big wine that keeps it fresh and elegant. Long finish.

Catawba??? Who came up with this as the primary varietal of this fantastic wine? Someone needs to do their homework and they will find the 2006 ERA is a 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28%Merlot , 20% Cabernet Franc , and 17%Petit Verdot blend, without (fortunately) a drop of Catawba in it. As far as tasting notes, go to their website, www.aowinery.com and read their own review - it's spot on!
