J. Doran Vineyards 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon
If you picked up some of J. Doran Vineyards 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon earlier this year, here's a great opportunity to compare two respective vintages by a winemaker who allows mother nature to shape the outcome of his wine. Of special note is that the 2010 had a little Merlot while the 2011 is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from George III Vineyard.
"True to its vintage roots, the palate is powerful & concentrated yet also shows an amazing mouth feel. Blackberry & other briary fruits glide across the palate while carrying hints of dark chocolate cedar & sandalwood." ~Christopher Doran, Owner & Winemaker for J. Doran Vineyards
