Firefly Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon San Luis Obispo County 2003

Member Review by WPUCCINI:

Not sure about the rest of the crew here in the review section although, wino shea made my day with that five dollar price tag... can anyone say sawweeeeeeet! I may have tried this central coast cabernet at some other time in my life but I obviously did not have a memorable moment...maybe. Recently within the last two months I was blessed to have found a bottle my dear friend had been sitting on for quite some time. It is now 2011 and I was about to enjoy a bottle of Firefly Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon year 2005. Maybe it's just me, no, no, it was not me for sure so it had to be the wine, yes, it was the wine for sure because it had a flavor and body and aroma that screemed velvety, very smooth and such rich flavors of those berries and all that real character a good cab should have whether you want to just kick off the shoes after a hard long day or with friends on a little get together or possibly with a nice formal sit down with a table full of delights such as cheeses and crackers of your choice of course and bowls of lovely pasta with meatballs or perhaps a fine bold new york or even that rib eye I have had my eye on. Let me rephrase, it was excellent and seemed to have aged very well since 2005. I will be looking for more of this liquid gold for sure. I wonder if 2003 can hold a candle to 2005? I guess I will have to conduct a private survey involving many bottles.... ..what can I say, I am stickler for details. Drink up, enjoy and be well everyone.
