Dan Aykroyd Sonoma County 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon

Dan Aykroyd's "sharp-knife" wit, splitting Julia Child on SNL,  and her love of wine, seems to have made a Cabaret of Dan Aykrod's 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon! $14.99-$21.99, 90 points, begins with the color of black currant, crushed black berries and a clear ring at the glass edge.
Red raspberry, sweet red cherry, and a hint of roses makes-up a startling bouquet.
A plethora of wild and vibrant red and black berries are proof of Cabernet Sauvignon's cellar-ability (I'm guessing this wine has some years left in it).
The medium-plus body carries good acidity and moderate tannin into a fair juicy finish with white and black pepper notes.
All jesting aside, this is a good wine, a little edgy, but presented just a bit different from most Cabernets I've tasted, with bright flavors, food friendly, and making for an interesting conversation, you'll probably not be disappointed!

  1. I want to leave a caveat with my readers: I seem to be the only one who likes this wine.
    Just maybe others tasted this wine while it was too young, but I found nothing objectionable with it (maybe, as I said, a bit "edgy"), however the price maybe more than one will want to pay!
    Either way: Caveat emptor!
