2006 Canyon Wind Colorado Cabernet Sauvignon

2006 Canyon Wind Colorado Cabernet Sauvignon

Upon entry, the 2006 Canyon Wind Colorado Cabernet Sauvignon is herbaceous with a good dose of eucalyptus and dried cherry leading to a smooth and inviting mid-palette. It finishes long and tannic with cassis and spice. Give this an hour of decanting before consuming. What about food pairings? The producer recommends Colorado lamb. How can you argue with that? Sounds like a wining pairing if you ask me! Drink now or cellar through 2014. 973 case production.

Rating: Very Good (88) | $25 | 13.9% ABV

    I know that most states make wine, but I am shocked to find out Colorado makes a decent wine worth hunting down. I’m excited to try it.
