The final wine that'll I'll look at from Boggy Creek Vineayrds later this week is a blend. However today, the third wine I'm looking at from Boggy Creek is a 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine spent 11 months in French oak and the suggested retail price is $18.
The Boggy Creek Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon has a big nose of fresh raspberry and strawberry. White pepper, nutmeg jammy fruit and a touch of licorice come out front he first sip and carry through the mid-palate. A light vanilla bean note is evident all the way through this wines palate. The finish features a wallop of blackberry with an underlying mocha presence. This is a rich and full flavored wine with lots of fruit upfront and throughout. It's not however over extracted or over-oaked. As with the other Boggy Creek Wines it's well balanced and made for food. This would be a good match for a steak or dishes with lots of earthy mushrooms.
The 2004 Boggy Creek Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignion has soft tannins and a round, smooth mouth feel. It's ready to drink no and will also standup to near term cellaring. For $18 the wine has plenty of Cabernet character.
Coming Next: a Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon blend from Boggy Creek Vineyards.
