Faun Salado Creek Rubia Red 2005

Member Review by Gold Medal Wine Club:

This is a Gold Medal Wine Club Gold Series selection. A Gold Medal Wine Club Special Selection! Faun Vineyards’ 2005 Salado Creek Rubia is a full-flavored, remarkable blend that expresses a tantalizing combination of fruit, spice, and lushness. Predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, the small percentage of Merlot contributes flavors of blackberry and plum with softer tannins, while the Cabernet Franc presents cocoa and pepper characteristics with slightly firmer tannins. The resulting blend exhibits remarkable levels of chocolate, cherry, and leather aromas and flavors that pair ideally with grilled or smoked hardy meats and sauces – see J.D.’s Cowboy Tri-Tip recipe. Named after proprietor J.D. Aguilar’s wife’s nickname, Rubia is one of the winery favorites and was made with the intentions of enjoying it alongside a delicious barbeque with the best of friends. Aged 14 months in oak. 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc. Enjoy now until 2015.
