2003 Sorrel Canyon Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon 12/1/2007 (Super-QPR)

2003 Sorrel Canyon Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon.

The foil cap says Windsor. The cork says Windsor. This very drinkable Cabernet is produced by Windsor Vineyards, those people who can put your name on wine to give to clients and the like. It differs in the fact that those old Windsors I have tried... always sucked. This is pretty pretty good. This wine is sold exclusively by Gary's Wine & Marketplace in New Jersey. They were pouring it when I visited so I gave it a shot, then another.

From my bottle a week later;
Dark color. Out of the gate the wine was a bit awkward, but within in hour it had shown signs of elegance and structure one rarely encounters at this price point. ($8.99)

Mocha, creme de cassis, lush black fruits, tar, coffee, and a very credible tannin level. As it sat in my glass it just got better and better. What a 9 dollar stunner!

Not much info on the web about this one, but give it a try and let me know what you think. I grabbed a case....


I can't state this enough; anyone who likes Cabernet should find this wine. I have had it 10 times to date and it just amazes me how a wine like this can still be produced and sold for under $10!! Lush, deep dark fruit. Tasted blind I would place this at about $30-$40. Really. Some friends of mine have tried and have bought cases. People who have some pretty deep cellars I should add.

I get nada for recommending this. But keep this in mind; If my name were Bob, this would be impossible to get.

You owe it to yourself. No?
