We have had this Smoking Loon Cabernet Sauvignon before but it was a 2006, I believe. So, let’s see how the 2007 fares. . .First of all, the color is dark purple. It is thick — not thin — with a clove-y, fruity nose. The taste is uber fruity (I had to use that word [uber] just once) and, in addition to the berry fruit, I detect a definite finish of dill. How interesting! It takes a while, but if you concentrate after sipping, the dill makes itself known. Tom seems to be enjoying this wine, too. He’s a pretty discriminating taster compared to me so I will enjoy reading his tasting notes.
Tom: This Smoking Loon Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 is pleasant and sippable: medium-bodied and pleasantly tannic, with medium dark fruit and a slight vegetal taste. This will go nicely with meatloaf.
