Blackstone Winery Cabernet Sauvignon California 2008
The Blackstone Cabernet Sauvignon has great complexity. Layered notes of caramel toffee, ripe plum, and black cherry are accented by the suggestion of cinnamon-spice in the aromatics of this wine. Dry, full-bodied and rich in texture, the flavors of black cherry and licorice dominate the palate and carry through to a long, warm finish. Fine, supple tannin structure will stand up to the heartiest of beef entrees, but will compliment the delicate texture of elegant pork loin roast and subtle veal cutlet with accompanying reduction sauces.
External Reviews for Blackstone Winery Cabernet Sauvignon California
A straightforward, likeable Cabernet, with spicy black cherry and fennel aromas and flavors. Modest complexity and slightly firm tannins make for a wine of some substance. Drink now through 2006.
Just red, this wine offers a light, dry mouthful of clean red fruit. Order a glass with a roast beef sandwich and sit back to watch the game.
Country-style, with berry and dust aromas and rough, fruity flavors. Itrsquo;s a bit scoury around the edge, but clean, with a sweet finish. A nice everyday wine at a fair price.
Herersquo;s a great wine for the price. It has the character of a fine North Coast Cabernet, with blackcurrant, spiced plum and cherry flavors, firm, sweet tannins and overlay of smoky oak. Turns thin in the middle, but the flavors reprise on the finish. Good value.
This onersquo;s produced from vineyards located throughout Californiarsquo;s finest grape growing regions. The vineyards are selected for their unique soils and microclimates. Winemaker Dennis Hill carefully develops each vineyard lot to capture their unique flavors and aromatic qualities. Grapes from the Central Coast provide round, intense cherry and plum flavors; Sonoma County grapes add rich spicy flavors, and the Napa Valley grapes add fruit.
