Cathedral Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon/ Merlot 2007 Sponsored Wine Review (NW)
Disclosure: This wine was provided complimentary to The Wine Cask Blog.
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
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!
