Ironstone Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Sierra Foothills Estate Grown Reserve 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Reticent and minty with an interesting mineral edge to the nose, smells granitic. A touch leaner and more transparent than the CF with a redder fruit profile. Bright acids and nicely measured tannin yield a firmly medium plus bodied wine with a touch of cola/root beer spice helping to frame the astringent red fruits. The wood is really well integrated here and while this is neither super complex or super rich (a good thing) it is very well behaved in the mouth. Not particularly varietal either but rich, polished and fruity. A well-made and enjoyably drinkable wine that finishes a touch short with a Mexican cocoa note.87pts.
