Community Tasting Notes 2

February 21, 2010 - • The Stuff: 100% Seven Hills Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon
• The Swirl: Very dark purple, opaque, Welch’s grape juice color
• The Sniff: Bright blueberry and cherry fruit, pretty grapey too – a wonderful spice comes up at the tail end of the sniff – good aromatic wine
• The Sip: The fruit is more subdued on the palate but presents a nice earthy blueberry and grape flavor with hints of vanilla and pepper spice. A nice acidity on the back end helps provide a medium length finish. Tannins are moderate but not harsh.
• The Score: At $30, this is a nice fruit forward Cabernet that I can score a 3+ (out of 5).
December 7, 2009 - Dark opaque color. Ripe aromas of dark red cherry and currant with cocoa, wood spice, and some damp earth. A lush palate with the same dark fruits and some good minerality. Nice acidity and ripe tannin on the finish. Very nice.
