Canyon's Edge Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

  • Area: Oregon, Horse Heaven Hills
  • Grape: Cab Sauv
  • Alcohol: 13.5%
  • Rating: Black 91 Dilettante 91
Description: Aromas of Balinese incense wafted out of the glass like an offering to the gods. We loved, loved, loved the heady, perfumed nose of tropical flowers, fruits, exotic woods and chalky spice. Rich and complex in the mouth with overtones of florals and cotton candy. The fruit forward attack is filled with bright cherries and mellows into flavors of spice box, raspberries and a hint of pine. It finishes off with a bone dry oakiness. Black said, "It tastes like a warm summer rain." Decanting loosens it up.

Price: $15

Note: We consider this a sipping wine.
