Schug Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Sauvignon. Merlot. Cabernet Franc. Malbec Sonoma County Sonoma Valley 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Merlot is blended in the Bordeaux style, adding Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc for depth and complexity. The Merlot grapes were sourced from the Ricci Vineyard and Sangiacomo “Donnell Ranch” in the Carneros district of southern Sonoma Valley, as well as the Sabhari Vineyard on Sonoma Mountain. These cooler microclimates provide the longer growing season necessary for Merlot to ripen slowly and develop maximum flavor. It has a spicy bouquet, deep color and exhibits full-bodied flavors of cherry, blackberry and spice.

External Reviews for Schug Sonoma Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Sauvignon. Merlot. Cabernet Franc. Malbec Sonoma County Sonoma Valley

11/12/2010

Rating: 85/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the November 2010 issue. Reticient red-cherry fruit might lend a certain varietal edge here, but the wine is always withdrawn and short on both richness and depth. It runs afoul of noticeable bitterness at the finish and makes no promise that beauty will come.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.
