Forefathers 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley

Goldschmidt Vineyard’s Forefathers 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the Lone Tree Vineyard, a small five and a half acre vineyard on a small knoll in the Alexander Valley. This site was selected for its ability to show more power and weight than the typical Alexander Valley Cabernet vineyard, and the resulting wine really shows the caliber of what this location is capable of. Wine Enthusiast magazine awarded the Forefathers 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon 93 Points, noting its soft tannins and herbal qualities that characterize it as a fine Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Winemaker Nick Goldschmidt describes the Forefathers 2007 Cabernet with powerful black fruit flavors, a deep complexity and round mouth feel, and smooth, supple tannins. This rich and elegant Cabernet is among Goldschmidt’s best releases and is truly an impressive achievement. Try pairing this Cabernet with grilled burgers and blue cheese, a slow roasted barbecued beef roast, strong cheeses, and dark chocolate. [+]
