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!
