Food Pairings for Peterson Cabernet Sauvignon Dry Creek Valley Bradford Mountain Vineyard
Tasting NotesThe grapes from the 2001 growing season produced a classic Bradford Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. Smokey cedar and fresh-crush berry aromas mingle with essence of vanilla and minerals. Rich and smooth yet intense and powerful, this wine offers flavors of sweet cedar, spicy cherries and blackberries. The signature mineral quality of the Bradford Mountain soil is woven in the character of the wine, marrying the luscious flavors together. With an elegant finish, this wine embodies classic finesse and style.Freds Vintaged ViewThis is our most terroir-driven winea Peterson wine that shouts out its origins with every sip. The Bradford Mountain vineyards produce wine grapes with a unique and very recognizable minerality, and that expression of place reaches its apex in the Bradford Mountain Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon.The intensity of the Cabernet Sauvignon is complemented with fleshy fruit and wonderful aromatics from Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Merlot to create a wine that offers layer upon layer of flavors and aromas. Though big and bold, this is still a wine with balance and finesse. It is not one of those over-oaked, over-extracted and high-alcohol creations that are currently the rage with wine critics, yet have no place on the table, nor the potential for successful bottle aging. This is a wine that will definitely benefit from both bottle age and/or decanting to allow the wine to open and reveal all of its depth and complexity.
