Erath Cabernet Sauvignon

Red

Wine Description

(1998 Vintage) This small production Cabernet is currently sold out at the winery. Eraths is one of the last remaining Willamette Valley Cabernets--in this cool region the grapes dont achieve the level of ripeness found in warmer areas (such as Washington and California). The wine has an attractive, distinctly peppery character; it was aged in French and American oak for almost two years.

Expert Reviews
  • International Wine Cellar
    (2005 Vintage) Bright red. Strawberry and cranberry aromas lifted by zesty white pepper and nutmeg. Light-bodied and taut, with refreshingly bitter cherry and wild strawberry flavors and an exotic suggestion of orange peel. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and lingering flavors of dried red berries and herbs.
