Food Pairings for Oak Ridge Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Lodi
Either this bottle was "corked," or the 2007 Lodi Oak Ridge Cabernet is by far the oakiest Cab I've ever had. What might otherwise be a typical sweet, fruit-forward wine has been completely overwhelmed by French and American oak aging (or spoiled by a bad cork). The flavor is tough to evaluate beneath all the oak and sugar, and the finish on this wine is almost non-existent, aside from the sense of having just licked the inside of a barrel. Even on the nose I have difficulty detecting anything but oak. If you really like that big oak flavor and don't mind a heavy dose of sugar in your wine, perhaps this one is for you; for me it was undrinkable and had to be dumped. Update: after experiencing the same taste in a different wine that normally tastes fine, I realized that this bottle was definitely corked.
