Beaver Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Lake County Horne Vineyard 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Carob, cola, herb, freshly sawn oak and earth all pop on the rather intense nose that features dried raspberry fruit. Bright and crisp one entry with lovely earthy and slightly vegetal nuances up front followed by a nice raspberry and mulberry midpalate. The tannins here are resolving but are beginning to show on the finish, which does show a hint of heat. There's a lovely freshness to this wine and while it is a touch rustic it has a fine savory, long finish that ends with a nice red currant liquor tone. An unusual Cabernet that offers a great change of pace. Man this needs some lightly gamy, nicely fatty animal to pair with. 89pts
