Vineland Estates 2007 Elevation Cabernet - $25.00

Over the next little while, here on the Weekly Wine Note, I have a feeling we are going to be ping-ponging between '07 reds and '08 whites and ros├ęs. This time it's on to Vineland to take a taste of a wine that was very good in 2005 (another great vintage for reds) and now even better in its 2007 form.

I am thrilled to announce that as of February 24, 2009, each Podcast has its own unique player - so you can listen to whichever Podcast you want to. So without further ado I will leave you with this week's Podcast, or if you decide not to check out the new format you can read the tasting notes below ... I recommend the Podcast, of course.

The Tasting Notes: The nose starts off a little shy with blackberry, get a little air in there and you’ll find black cherry, vanilla, a touch of some and some cinnamon. The palate also requires a little coaxing, red and black cherry, a bit of leather, licorice and tobacco all wrapped in fine dusty tannins that end silky smooth in the mouth. Price: $25.00 – Rating: **** ½

Hi Michael, how long to lay this one down in the cellar?
