2000 “Seven Devils Red” Table Wine
Profoundly juicy concentrated fruit showing lots of deep blackberry and loganberry flavors, with medium tannins and a chewy, robust thickness that proves this blend is serious.
Dark purple with nice traces of tobacco and a leathery grip that balances out the fruit and ads some complexity into a really great blend. A lighter cherry brightness starts to creep in while I let this wine sit in my glass for a good 15 minutes, and a gentle black olive taste starts to get all over the roof of my mouth.
The Cabernet Sauvignon (30%) is a perfect backbone for the other two to rest upon. It finishes with some finesse and a touch of smoke. The dense dark berry flavors are in control the whole time and they will continue to hold up even after a few years in the cellar. Excellent effort from the guys from Idaho and the distinctive label is a photo from 1936 of the winery owner’s granddad lookin’ over Seven Devils Mountains. 241 cases made.
