Wine Review: This may be the best Pina wine we have tried to date. It was the clear winner in our mini-blind tasting. It is very dark purple colored and opens with an attractive red currant and red cherry bouquet with just a touch of earthiness in the background. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, very nicely balanced, and ultra smooth. The flavor profile is a delicious mild blackberry and black currant with a hint of chocolate. The finish is dry and its dusty tannins pleasantly drift along. This is a wine to Wow them with. Serve it with filet mignon. Cheers - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2007 Buckeye Cabernet has notes of blueberry, espresso bean, forest floor and wet stones. The toasty oak lends a sweetness to the palate and solid yet fine grained tannins linger on the finish.

Organic status: not organic

Your comments on this wine:

Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
