Kunde Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma Valley Estate Grown 2006
Wine Tasting Notes The Kunde Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is the epitome of Sonoma Valley Cabernet; herbal accents of fennel and anise wrap around a core of black raspberry and black cherry flavors so typical of Kunde's rolling hills and steep mountain grape blocks. A touch of Syrah, Malbec, and Petit Syrah adds color and richness to the wine - we'll break with the French blending tradition if it reveals the best of our land and its fruit! This fabulous wine was crafted using 80% hillside fruit. Grill some smoky pork chops stuffed with apples and gorgonzola, open a bottle of Kunde Estate Cabernet, and impress your mouth.
Family owned and operated for five generations, Kunde Family Estate produces ultra-premium, estate-grown wines that are sustainably farmed in the finest traditions of Northern California's renowned Sonoma Valley.
Editorial Reviews for Kunde Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma Valley Estate Grown
A bit woody on the nose with a touch of lavender accenting the core of spicy black fruit. Super fresh in the mouth with a clear, crisp character to the blackberry/blueberry fruit. The tannins are well judged and very crisp accenting the long finish and while this is happy and exuberant it lacks a little complexity. 87pts
I really like this wine as a go-to Cab Sauv, not over complicated, smooth and fresh
91 pts - Strawberries and honey on nose, not wimpy. Crisp acidity and firm tannins complement the full-bodied juicy black raspberries. Has a hint of ivy, earth.
They are not joking when they say get cooking and make some steak. This is fabulous with a nice rib eye or NY Strip. Carmel flavors POP for me.
