2007 Sean Minor Cabernet Sauvignon
2007 Sean Minor 4 Bears Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley - Wonderfully deep color. Stunning black olive, blackberry, blueberry compote and cedar aromas. More dark fruits and cedar-tinged wood on the palate with considerable tannins and lively acidity. A really serious Napa Valley Cabernet at an affordable price that harkens back to Chateau Souverain, Beringer Knights Valley and Markham of the early 1990s. I think I have one more 2007 left and then it's on to my small stash of 2008s. That being said, I don't think this wine is in any danger of going downhill soon. Drink with confidence over the next 5-7 years.
For dinner I grilled some beef kabobs made with large cubes of patio steak and pieces of red onion and red bell pepper. Patio steak, as I've come to find out, is an alternative way of cutting my much-beloved flat iron steak.
