2017 Tierra Roja Cabernet Sauvignon. I’m Anthony Dias Blue with the Blue Lifestyle Minute sponsored by CUISINART. Every so often, a wine arrives that stands head and shoulders above the rest. So, it is with the 2017 Tierra Roja Cabernet Sauvignon. Rich garnet color, smooth plum, and vanilla nose, and silky texture; this Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon has ripe plum and vanilla oak flavors, with chocolate, mocha, and licorice. It’s another amazing wine from this underappreciated winery. All together this 2017 vintage earns double gold, a healthy ninety-seven points. At one-hundred sixty-five dollars a bottle, this wine is meant for special occasions. Now is the best time to join Tierra Roja’s mailing list: it’s the only way to purchase this outstanding vintage.
