Domaine d’Aubaret Cabernet Sauvignon (2007)

reserve-domaine-daubaret-cabernet-sauvignon-20071It is Monday evening and we both worked hard at our jobs today. I was able to sneak in a 3-mile noon hour run.

I am making ricotta-stuffed chicken breasts,  brown rice, and steamed asparagus for dinner tonight and I chose this French Domaine D’Aubaret Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 because I thought it would be a good complement (and because I was curious to taste it). We haven’t had much opportunity to taste many French Cabernet Sauvignons.

This is a keeper and I like it very much.  As soon as I opened the bottle, I knew I was in for something good; the nose  is brimming with licorice and spice. The color is a deep red in the glass. On the palate is plenty of plums, cranberries, and cedar. The tannins are full and round.  Yes, this is yummy and I am glad that we have three more bottles waiting for us to enjoy. Cheers!

    Melody, its a WSJ or any other club wine…the house is in Faugeres in the Cotes de Thongue region (we have been there), is a VdP wine. The house is better known for its Merlot than for CS but the major wine grapes of Languedoc are Mourvedre, Grenache, Syrah/Cinsault. I have seen a pic of the CS in a PN bottle (not good) & FR never list the grape name on their bottles; dont make 100% CS and a
    2007 would need cellering for 3-5 years. Wine clubs are not scams, but they do prey on the unknown…Sorry.
    Cheers? Marty and Jeannie

    Thanks for your review on this wine. Were the other bottles as good as the first? I have a bottle sitting here that I am getting ready to open…

    Never let anyone change your mind if you like something, a lesson not just for wine
