From Club W:
“Once you’ve found a prime purveyor for your meats, there’s nothing better. This wine is an ode to all the butchers out there who are so much more than just a merchant. You know, those who are your trusted adviser, your wise counselor, a member of your extended family, the local meat maven who helps you bring delicious, simple, home-cooked creations to your table every week. Because let’s face it, a perfect cut of beef next to a full glass of wine makes for one of life’s best simple pleasures. And so, Butcherblock is a wine to cook with, to dine with, to eat with. Its savory aromas of cedar box, dried tobacco leaves and vanilla coupled with flavors of fruity cherry and sugar plum make it ideal for carnivorous food pairings like beef bourguignon, stroganoff, tenderloin or wellington.
The 2011 Butcherblock Cabernet Sauvignon begins with a very pleasant bouquet of black cherry, lots of spice, cedar and a little vanilla. Don’t be afraid to give the glass a good swirl to really release all the aromas. Tasting reveals an easy drinking, medium-bodied wine filled with lots of savory dark fruit and well integrated spice. It also has a fabulous, long finish featuring lingering sweet fruit and very long lasting spice notes. Everything you want in a Cabernet at a fantastic price.
