Blackstone 1997 Cabernet,
Some of you out there in cyberland are
familiar with this gem of a
winery. Everything they make is balanced and
delicious. Not to mention
an outstanding value. Well, they have done it
again with the 1997
Cabernet (just released). It has rich supple
fruit surrounded by an
elegant creaminess. Bursting with caramel,
cinnamon, black spicy
something I can't identify, cherries and vanilla.
Sounds like a sundae,
huh? Don't get me wrong this is not sweet, it
is dry with a firm
tannic backbone. A well structured red that
finishes smooth and long.
This wine is something to be excited about!
