Borne Of Fire Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||United States, Washington, Columbia Valley|
|Brand||Borne Of Fire|
Borne of Fire epitomizes the terroir of The Burn. This rugged, yet elegant wine leads with herbal expressive aromas laced with pomegranate and stony minerals. Upon tasting the wine, powdery tannins frame flavors of cherry, currant, savory spice, and red pepper. A green coffee inflected finish rounds out the overall experience. Food Pairings: Pairs well with beef sliders, Caribbean pork sandwich, gnocchi with braised beef brisket and garlic chicken wings.
"This is the first year made of this wine with wonderful blackberries, rose leaves and blueberries. Wildly floral. Stems. Full body and round and fine tannins. Juicy and intense. Shows an eccentric style. All large oak. A new nature and personality. Drink now or hold."
Lively, loaded with spice notes and accents of black cherry and cola, finishing with zesty tannins. Drink now through 2022. 35,000 cases made.
This wine comes from a new, yet-to-be approved growing region called The Burn. Plum, herb, green-pepper and baking-spice aromas are followed by lightly sweet black-currant flavors. The concentration seems a bit light.
