Griffin Creek 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon / Southern Oregon
In the Rogue Valley’s eastern portion, heat-seeking red varietals, such as Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, thrive in a warm, dry climate on south-facing slopes nearly 2,000 feet in elevation.
Pronounced aromas of green olive and herbs mingle with softer scents of blackberry, plum, coffee, toasty oak, and pepper. Jammy blackberry and cherry flow into notes of mocha, cigar box, and a hint of jalapeno on the palate. Juicy tannins make it a ideal companion for hearty beef dishes.
