Forgeron Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley 2002

Member Review by jtryka:

The wine is a lovely deep ruby color in the glass with a bit of opacity starting to show given it's maturity level. The nose is just impressive, with a blast of fruit, dark cherry, cassis, leather and smoke over a bit of sultry spice. The taste elegant yet complex in its layers, with some soft berry notes that give way to some wonderful earthy flavors of peat, green grass and some minerality, with hints of limestone and dark chocolate. The finish is very nice, smooth and dry, just as I would expect for a 12-year-old Cabernet produced in the style of a quality Bordeaux.

Marie-Eve says, "My wines have a sense of place, they reflect their terroir which is composite of the vine location and the grower dedication. I practice minimal intervention winemaking, enabling each grape to fully express itself. Using this winemaking philosophy allows me to craft food friendly wines of great character." Read less
