This is a Gold Medal Wine Club Platinum Series selection. The Collier Falls 2001 Hillside Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a lush, deeply flavored wine that models the expressive fruit from the charming Sonoma County region of Dry Creek Valley. This estate wine earned a Gold Medal at the Jerry Mead International Wine Competition, a Gold Medal at the Los Angeles Wines of the World Competition, as well as a Gold Medal at the Indiana State Fair Wine Competition. Winemaker Cécile Lemerle-Derbes describes the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon best as: “An elegantly styled wine with intense deep red color…the bouquet blends hints of cassis, fresh tobacco leaves, cacao and blackberries. The mouth is long and soft with opulent flavors of dark cherries, roasted coffee and chocolate. This is a rich and silky wine with balance, complexity and structure. Firm tannins give the wine potential for aging, but it is pretty even now.” Try pairing the Collier Falls 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon with braised short ribs, New York steaks, and grilled lamb chops. Aged 22 months in oak. 94% Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Estate Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Enjoy now until 2011.
