Wine House Taste Notes - Forefront Cabernet
The pick of the week come from the Crimson Wine Group. The wine makers of Pine Ridge and Seghesio to name a couple but this prize hails from Forefront.
Coming in around 20.00 is a steal. This wine has the complexity and richness of a full Cabernet, but is a blend of 82% Cabernet, 11% Syrah, 6% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Merlot. The blend is also made up of grapes from Napa, Sonoma, and Lake County. With black currant, black cherry, and a hint of clove this wine has the complexity of a full bodied Cabernet. It is supported by silky smooth tannins and a long finish with hints of cinnamon, vanilla and caramel. This wine is great with most meals but obviously bodes well with grilled meats, pasta Bolognese, and of course your favorite chocolate truffle. Enjoy!!
