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.
