WineDiva's Review

Supple, delicious, slick.
Lake Sonoma Winery is a business venture co-founded by Quails' Gate CEO Tony Stewart. The Lake Sonoma label was established in 1977, but the Valley of the Moon estate and winery Stewart purchased is over 150-years-old (1863) - a true piece of Californian history.
The grapes for the wines in the portfolio are all sourced from sub-appellations of Sonoma, as is this Cabernet.
Chocolate and cassis, vanilla, baking spices, pencil shavings and prune, along with pipe tobacco, describe the nose. It has a slick texture and supple weight; black fruits, tobacco, vanilla and mocha flavours dominate the palate. Boasting notable balance and structure--it is a fresh, delicious and complete wine with polished tannins.


Pairs great with Gone Crackers Blue Cheese & Cracked Pepper
