Ironstone Vineyard, 2003 California Cabernet Sauvignon



The 2003 Ironstone Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon was produced from fruit grown in the family vineyards located in Murphys and Lodi, California. The wine is young and needs some time to aerate upon opening...give it at least 30 minutes and you will be rewarded. It's also one reason why it gets and A for Day 2 - it really benefits from time. While not a very showy wine, its a SUPER value wine, delivering a strong fruit base with some tannic bite.

Around $7

Serve at home with hard cheeses, grilled beef, rich food.

Ratings: few are far between, but mid 80s generally.

Day 2 Rating: A

ABOUT ME

Name: VINORATER (aka VR)
Home: California, United States
About Me: WHY THIS BLOG? Truth is, it's getting harder to find good wine at an everyday price (around $12 and under). So I've trolled respectable sources far and wide (Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast, Food & Wine, Robert Parker, Stephen Tanzer, New York Times, and other strong reviewers) for the "best of the best-priced", and tried every wine personally before recommending it. I also only include wines that are fairly easy to find. Plus, I've added useful info on wine pairings, wine terms, and wine news and other interesting wine info. Let's share, and please pass on any recommendations, thoughts and critics... Cheers! VinoRater
