Cathedral Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon/ Merlot 2007 Sponsored Wine Review (NW)


Disclosure: This wine was provided complimentary to The Wine Cask Blog.

Tasting notes:

Raspberry, blueberry pie, and chocolate on the nose

Full bodied and tight on the palate

More raspberry on the finish, with black currant and herbs

Summary:

Here's a good red blend from Oregon. It achieves a popular fruity style through a 50/50 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. For those of us who immediately think Pinot Noir when we hear Oregon red, this wine will take you off the beaten path. In fact, this producer also does a bit of Zinfandel and some other red wines in addition to their lineup of Pinot Noir. The retail price is $18. Raise a glass!
