On the nose, the 2007 Owl Ridge Cabernet Sonoma County Brigden Vineyard reminds me a lot of the Caymus or Justin isosceles ..with a healthy dose of leather and oak. The similarity ends there however!
This is a dry, spicy Cabernet with balanced flavors of blueberry, boysenberry and blackberry. In addition you certainly get a hint of bitter (but fantastic chocolate), cigar box, leather and crushed stone. It starts powerful and spicy, midway through you pick up the black / blue fruits and it finishes long with a definitive minerality and well structured tannins
I really enjoyed this and at $34 , I would absolutely buy this again.
I have read that "it's not one for the cellar" ... I'm not sure why ... or that I agree but in case that critique is right.... Perfect! Because I'm loving this now.
