2007 Cabernet Sauvignon

The Del Rio Cab was given a little attention from the Oregonian recently and we wanted to share more. Dana Tim suggested readers to visit Del Rio to taste the delicious Cab Sauvignon. The review states, "a standout here(Del Rio) is the 2007 cabernet sauvignon, and the charm of Del Rio's tasting room -- in the historic Rock Point State Hotel, built in 1864 -- means you'll savor every sip." Read the full article here.

Tasting Notes:
Our 100% estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep black currant color. Aromas of prune, raisin and smoked oak, with a touch of licorice notes. On the palate, this full bodied wine is well balanced, with good acidity and young tannins, showing its aging potential. The 2007 vintage benefitted from a late harvest exposing the grapes to cooler temperatures causing lower alcohol levels and structured acidity allowing for ideal flavor development.

Food Pairing Suggestions:
Pair with steak or dishes with heavy butter cream sauce. We also recommend a variety of cheeses such as cheddar, mozzarella and brie. Even bitter dark chocolate will marry well with it. Enjoy now or cellar for the next 4-6 years.
