Food Pairings for Robert Young Estate Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley Scion
Scion wines have consistent characteristics: the use of fruit grown on select sections of our estate vineyards where the vines are rooted in well-drained, non-vigorous, volcanic soils; the use of 100% French oak barrels (approximately 40% of which are new each year); and the “hands-on” skills of only one man, Kevin Warren, the Robert Young Estate Winery winemaker. Consequently, Scion wines have repeatedly received enthusiastic reviews from wine critics, the wine trade, and our customers alike. The 2007 Scion is once again predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon and is labeled as such. The wine is a hybrid between California and Bordeaux styles, structured and balanced with plenty of fruit. The 2007 Scion is a deep, radiant garnet in color and immediately releases aromas of dark, luscious berry pie, plums, and a hint of black licorice. The palate is soft and clean with strong barrel notes and great tannin structure built for aging. This vintage is strikingly reminiscent of the 1997 Scion, our flagship wine released ten years ago. After a decade's worth of Scion vintages, we are proud to offer you this wine.
