Gordon Brothers Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
Cabernet Sauvignon from Columbia Valley, Washington
The nose is greeted with warm aromas of cedar, seductive spices and chocolate, along with dark fruit. This full-bodied, rich wine has a velvety mouth-feel with flavors of black currant, anise and cherry. The wine is very well balanced with respect to both acids and tannins. Enjoy the lingering finish.
Pair this wine with grilled red meats, sausages and strong cheeses. For a sensory delight, try it with a dark chocolate truffle or molten lava cake.
