In continuation of Regional Wine Week, I pick up where I left off with a review of the Elk Run 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon. Produced from grapes from their Cold Friday Vineyard, the Cabernet was recently awarded a Best in Class in the 2009 Maryland Governor’s Cup competition for top red. The wine also took home gold at the Wine Masters Choice Award and the International Tasters Guild.
A terrific growing season, 2007 provided plenty of sunshine, sufficient rainfall, and warm temperatures through harvest, making for ripe, concentrated grapes. A fruit bomb, the medium-bodied wine exhibited blackberry, currant, and spice on the nose and palate. A solid effort and another reason to seek out East Coast wines from the 2007 vintage. Cheers!
