Friday Wine Tasting…Cabernet Sauvignon Peloponnese!

January 11, 2013



Wine of the Week:

2009 Domaine Skouras Red St. George-Cabernet Sauvignon Peloponnese


Winemakers notes:

The color is brilliant, medium-deep violet with pink hues. On the nose it is vivid and intense with aromas of black cherries, and blackberries with hints of plums, violets, and dried herbs. On the palate it has medium body, moderate acidity with smooth tannins, all in harmony. The aftertaste is moderate with a note of gentle anise seed.A splash of Cabernet Sauvignon, the Skouras Red is full of red berry flavors, and hints of citrus zest with a silky texture and soft tannins.

Pairing Notes:

A perfect red wine for meaty fish dishes like pan roasted grouper; or stuffed chicken breast with spinach and feta cheese.

Happy Weekend! xo,Caitlin
