Today we opened a Cabernet Sauvignon from Hook and Ladder Winery. The AVA is Russian River. Estate bottled from Los Amigos Ranch on Chalk Hill Rd. It is the reserve version or as this winery uniquely calls it ‘Third Alarm’.
The color is a deep garnet and so beautiful. The nose is rich plum and warm jam. On the palate it has bold fruit with a bit of spice. The finish is sexy and smooth. This wine deserves it’s alarm status as my husband and I raced to refill our glasses. Just loved this wine.
