We had to go outside the Bordeaux varietals to find a blend for this wine that would make it stand out in the crowded Cabernet Sauvignon space
Geyserville, CA (PRWEB) December 20, 2011
Starlite Vineyards, located in Geyserville, CA, in the famed Alexander Valley, is a top Sonoma County boutique winery and is happy to announce the release of their 2007 Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is Bordeaux in style, and is marked with cassis and plums with silky textures and refined tannins. The Cabernet is seductive on the palate with aromas of vanilla and chocolate. A balanced acidity makes the wine a pairing choice with a variety of dishes and is among the most spectacular examples of the varietal.
“We had to go outside the Bordeaux varietals to find a blend for this wine that would make it stand out in the crowded Cabernet Sauvignon space,” said Starlite Vineyards’ Owner Arman Pahlavan. “The resulting wine is gorgeous and very much Bordeaux in style to the point that at one of the blind tastings in New York City, one of the great sommeliers called it a 2000 Bordeaux. This is an attestation to our meticulous attention to viticulture and the vineyards, our being experimental in our blending and our vinification details to get us where we want to be as to aromatics and flavors.”
In addition to the release of the 2007 Cabernet, Starlite Vineyards also recently released two other wines; their 2007 Zinfandel, a claret style wine soft tannins, rich fruit, and ruby color, and their 2010 Viognier, a Condrieu style wine which exudes scents of orange blossom and honeysuckle along with layers of apricot, peaches, and nectarine.
