Accolades for Cabernet Sauvignon

Seattle Times Top 100 WA Wines 2008 - 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon #43

The fruit mixes ripe berries & moves smoothly into flavors of earth, smoke, tobacco & graphite."

Paul Gregutt listed Forgeron 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon as 43rd of the "Top 100 Washington Wines."

"The grapes come from 3 very widely seperated vineyard sources. The Klipsun, says winemaker Marie-Eve Gilla, is for the backbone and tannins; the Pepper Bridge gives dried herbs and tighter tannins; and the Alder Ridge is more European and fills out the midpalate. This is showing very well, and has clearly benefited from the extra bottle age. It's beautifully integrated, with the tannins substantial but polished. The fruit mixes ripe berries and moves smoothly into flavors of earth, smoke, tobacco and graphite."
