Ironstone Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Date August 9, 2009 | Chuck | Cabernet Sauvignon & Red Wine & USA

A benchmark California cab. Very approachable and hits all the marks one would expect.
Because I've cellared this bottle for a while, I couldn't find it's LCBO number, but be sure to check out their next vintage when it hits shelves.  I've just put their merlot on my shopping list: VINTAGES# 704353

Perez Cruz Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva 2005

Date March 20, 2008 | Sean | Cabernet Sauvignon & Chile & Red Wine

A nosnob.com favorite for sure. We first found this wine a couple of years ago in a Vintages release and it was love at first drop. We have been recommending it and buying it ever since. I got to meet the wine maker back in November. I might have made an "I'm an obsessed scary stalker fan" first impression. More on that another time. Now to the wine...
This is a big bold gutsy wine and it's proud of it. Deep aromas and flavors of blackberry, chocolate, cherry. Just enough alcohol to warm the mouth and throat without being offensive. Get your butcher to cut you a perfect piece of moo and fire up the BBQ. Perez Cruz is coming to dinner.
