Sunday, 7/1, Little Rock, AR
I bought today's reviewed wine, the 2000 Silver Fox Vineyards Estate Bottled Cabernet Sauvignon, more as a souvenir than anything else. I had never heard of this vineyard and saw this in the huge store in Yosemite Park, California. I paid about $13.00/bottle and brought it back to Arkansas with me to try at some future date. Well today was that future date. #1 pulled it out of the cellar so that it could warm a little bit on Saturday and we ended up uncorking it Sunday night. I poured a glass through my Vinturi and then proceeded to check out the nose. Wow! Tons of cherry and plum with a little bit of oak coming through. After that start I was anxious to give it a taste and was not disappointed at all. More of the cherry, plums and strawberry with a perfect blend of spiced oak. My first glass went much too quickly and my second glass was every bit as good as the first, if not better! I easily gave this one the much sought after and coveted 5Corkscrews. Incredible taste and aroma and at $13.00/bottle a steal for this Cabernet. I only hope I can find some around here but I'm not going to get my hopes up. Find some of this and buy it as soon as you can before they run out. Only 416 cases produced. Sit Long, Talk Much, Laugh Often, Drink Silver Fox Cabernet!
