TODAY'S FEATURED WINE
Noggle Vineyards and Winery: Cabernet Sauvignon: North Coast-California: Old Long Valley Vineyard: 2007: United States
Comments: This Noggle is a BIG Cab ... but more of a Gentle Ben than a Paul Bunyan.
Soft cocoa, nutmeg and intense dark fruit balance powerful tannins.
The 2007 is wonderful now, but you can tell by the wall that it changes in the glass from sip to sip that it has a lot more years to age. $45 suggested retail.
For winery tasting samples, gifts from friends or family or samplings at a party or event, review it truthfully, but only if I like it. If I have paid my own very-hard-earned money on a bottle, the gloves are off and it gets what it deserves ... whether perfect or puerile.
