Wine Review: 2007 Forefront Cabernet Sauvignon by Pine Ridge
The delicious, first-class 2007 Forefront Cabernet Sauvignon pours out a regal, dark purple. With a powerful nose consisting of aromas including blueberries, raspberries, slight truffle, leather, and light vegetable notes, this scintillating wine pleases before it is even sipped. On the tongue, it certainly demands attention, too! Surprisingly well-balanced for such a young Cabernet, it is mouth-watering, rich, and meaty. Its pleasant berry tastes also mix splendidly with well-integrated, smooth tannins. The finish, excellent and long, gives rise to hidden coffee, dark cherry, and chocolate flavors. Try a bottle with steak and butter-rich dishes to neutralize the tannins and bring out the wine’s inherent fruit flavors. Or, match the wine’s oak influences by serving with grilled or smoked meats. And for tasty dessert ideas, this wine pairs exceptionally well with dark chocolate recipes. This is a big, harmonious, excellent wine worth every penny!
