Vampire Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Recas DOC 2005

Member Review by WineGeekJen:

his wine has a thin, but pleasing ruby color that captures the light in a magical way. Aromas of decaying strawberries, woodsy pine, rosemary, black currant and tobacco. It has a hot bold green pepper flavor with black currant and red berry undertones.

Rumor has it that the Vampire Vineyards are actually owned by a circle of vampires, and the company’s founder, an entertainment attorney from New York, is actually just a front.

Wine Tasting NotesVampire Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from several small-berry clones of this traditional Bordeaux varietal, grown in the Paso Robles region of California's Central Coast. An extended growing season, with sunny, moderate daytime temperatures, along with cool summer nights, allows ideal fruit development at this site. Well-drained soils, rich in maritime fossils, add uniquely aromatic components to this fruit-forward wine.Classic, small-lot fermentations, followed by aging with both European and American oak, gives full expression to the rich varietal flavors in this wine. Judiciously blended with small amounts of Merlot for softness, and Syrah for added structure, our Cabernet displays ripe flavor character and a lovely aroma that will continue to develop with additional time in bottle.Ideal for grilled steaks and chops, or with rich red pasta dishes, our Cabernet Sauvignon is well-suited for the table, and is a wonderful complement to any fine meal.
