Wine Review: This was my favorite wine from Foppiano this year at the Boston Wine Expo. On the palate, the wine was nicely proportioned and elegant. This is a good reasonably priced burger wine to consider as we move into grilling season. The finish is dry and has some length to it. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2004 Foppiano Vineyards Estate Cabernet Sauvignon was made entirely from fully mature, 17-year old vines grown on the family’s Russian River Valley Estate. The wine is full-bodied and deeply colored. In the aroma, hints of mint and anise give way to pronounced blackberry and currant. A cedar and vanilla bouquet are matched with comparable character in the flavors from one year in oak. Best served with red meat dishes, hearty pastas, full-flavored cheeses, roasted pork, or our favorite roasted wild boar.
