Meridian Cab ’07

In case anyone has doubts about my enthusiasm for vino, take a quick glance at this archival piece from 2010.  It was originally titled “Excited About Wine!”  lol

I can’t stop myself!  I am just so excited to have a place to share my thoughts about wine.  I hope folks reading this blog will 1) get something out of my posts and 2) share their thoughts on wines as well.   That said – here’s another one.

Vineyard:  Meridian
Wine:  Cabernet Sauvignon
Vintage:  2007
Appellation: California
Price:  $8.99

Notes:  The bouquet has plum, toasty vanilla and floral notes.  Flavors open with a nice attack of bright red fruit flavors – bing cherry, red currant, damson plum with vanilla and what I can only describe as “zucchini bread” in the finish.  Moderate tannins make this a drinkable wine now, but it certainly has enough backbone to do well with meals and to cellar some if you want.  With oxidation the fruit flavors deepen and smooth a bit to darker reds – plum and dark cherry.

Important:  I am not a professional sommelier or wine connoisseur.  See “About” for the full disclaimer.
