Grapelive: Wine of the Week

craig07.gif2007 Robert Craig “Mt. George Cuvee” Napa Valley (Bordeaux Blend).

This Cabernet based red punches way above its weight in terms of quality and class! This wine is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with parts of Cabernet Franc and Merlot adding elegance and complexity to the whole. The vintage shows dark color, lush fruit and ripe tannins making it a smooth Bordeaux style drinking wine that delivers big flavors and sweet smoky oak shadings. This wine shows blackberry, plum, cassis, spiced currants, cedar, cigar box and dried flowers along with touches of pepper, mocha, pencil lead and vanilla cream. Did I mention the value here? This treat is a bargain at $25! ($25-30 Est.) 92 Points, grapelive
