Angeline 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley (Martin Ray)

They say, "Tasting Notes - This wine has a deep garnet hue and aromas of lush fruit: black cherry, cassis and vanilla. The rich black cherry and plum flavors are layered with hints of vanilla, creamy oak and cassis that linger on the palate. The finish is smooth and satisfying, with soft tannins complementing the intense fruit." I say, "A nice wine, went well with my dinner of salad and home made truffled potato chips. At $12.99 I'd totally buy this again, but it's more of an everyday wine." I suspect the Penthouse wasn't thrilled with us for bringing our own but their wine list is so unreliable and odd that I didn't want to chance it.

Murphy-Goode's Zinfandel known as Liars' Dice is one of the winery's more popular bottles... Sure, sure, there are rich, fruit flavors of black cherry and blackberry jam with soft tannins that perfectly balance the sweetness of the fruit. But we just think it's the perfect bottle to have when *playing* Liars' Dice.

(since we bought so much of the wine for my Murphy Goode Winery job application video). Fortunately, the Fumé Blanc (the Californication of Sauvignon Blanc) is super perfect for the beginning of summer since it pairs well with "appetizers, salads, grilled chicken or fish, light sauces and lighter dishes in general. The wine's succulent fruit and good acidity complement fresh seafood, particularly shellfish." So this weekend, we're throwing some shrimp on the barbie (maybe a couple on ken, too), and starting the summer off with Murphy Goode's "The Fumé."

  • I have a general rule of thumb when picking out a Cabernet Sauvignon. If it comes from Alexander Valley it's gonna be good. I'm certain there are exceptions to this rule, but I have yet to encounter one. And this wine was LOVELY. ... I have a general rule of thumb when picking out a Cabernet Sauvignon. If it comes from Alexander Valley it's gonna be good. I'm certain there are exceptions to this rule, but I have yet to encounter one. And this wine was LOVELY. Smooth and light-flavored, but distinctive. Would love to have another bottle if only I could find one! I may just order a few from this site ;)
