2003 Cabernet Sauvignon
If you have been searching for an elegant, full-bodied Cab, this is the end of your journey. Our 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon is exactly what you have been longing for. This wine has incredible structure and gained great depth from extended barrel and bottle aging.
It opens with beautiful aromas of blackberry, lilacs, currants and a hint of anise. The flavors are mouthwatering with the mixture of rich, dense dark fruits of blackberry, huckleberry and plum balanced by nice acidity and tannins. This wine has an elegant mouthfeel with multiple layers that cascade from one to the other like a waterfall, followed by a long, supple finish.
When thinking of the perfect food pairing, beef and barbeque comes to mind. Try with a blackened steak salad topped with blue cheese or a marinated grilled flank steak with rosemary and garlic topped with caramelized Walla Walla sweet onions. Invite a couple of friends to join you and pour a bottle or two of Forgeron Cellars 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon.
