2008 Mackey Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon, Columbia Valley


Happy Friday to all and hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!   Here is the first of many wines I have tried over this Holiday week and one of my favorites, by Winemaker produced by Roger Mackey out of Walla Walla, Washington.  This 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, with 15% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot has a harmonious, masterfully refined bouquet of classic Walla Walla fruit, tobacco, musk and cassis. With stellar mouthfeel, elegant tannin and delectable flavors of black currant, green bell pepper, black licorice and spice, this wine was a blessing to drink. Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.

2007 Skylite Cellars Reserve Bordeaux Style Blend


Happy Sunday and once again writing about another massive effort by Skylite Cellars with this Columbia Valley Meritage blend consisting of 51% Malbec, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon and 16% Carmenere. Offering a riveting bouquet of sweet perfume, dill, nutmeg, cigar box  and seduction, this masterfully layered medium bodied red has an elegant full mouthfeel that is not overbearing with expressive flavors of clove, black currant and powdered blueberries.  Absolutely love Skylite Cellars vision and wines. Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.

Pedroncelli 2009 Three Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon


Medium bodied with a seductive, captivating, deep dark hue, this Cabernet Sauvignon is beautifully aromatic with expressive amounts of Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Accompanied by smooth tannin and pristine balance, this Cabernet offers generous flavors of black cherry, plum, mulberry and red currant.  Absolutely one of my favorite California Cabs!!   Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.
