2007 J. Bookwalter "Foreshadow" Washington Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1058482

94 points Wine Enthusiast Magazine: "This wine's dense complexity is immediately apparent in the nose; offering hints of Asian spice, cinnamon, cardamom, along with supple layers of purple and black fruits. The tannins are substantial and fine-grained, perfectly ripe, and the threads of black olive, smoke, tar and coffee weave seamlessly into the finish. There is a balance point here--it has not reached too far; it's just right." (09/10) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Velvety tannins blanket the palate as ripe cherry, mint and savory herb flavors come together harmoniously and push through the texture to spread easily over the spicy finish. This has all the pieces, just needs time. Best after 2011." (08/10) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Foreshadow Cabernet Sauvignon (with 7% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot in the blend) reveals aromas of Asian spices, a hint of balsamic, mineral, and black currant. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, it has plenty of spice and savory notes, good balance, and a medium-long finish. It will offer prime drinking from 2012 to 2022." (08/10)

I am continually amazed at the high-quality of Bordeaux-style wines coming out of the state of Washington. The 2007 Bookwalter Foreshadow Cabernet Sauvignon is another example of the heights that are being reached there, this wine is the perfect blend of luscious fruit and complexity thanks to its unique terroir. Sourcing roughly half of its fruit from the famed Klipsun and Ciel du Cheval vineyards this wine is packed with dense black fruits as well as fine tannins all of which wrapped themselves around the rich oak finish. If you're in the mood for something a bit different than the usual from California or Bordeaux then give this wonderful wine a try.
Drink from 2009 to 2019

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the Médoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.
Country:

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

Sub-Region:

Washington

- Washington has become one of the most important wine producing states in the United States, and development continues to grow rapidly. In 1969, when California was exploding as a wine producer, Washington had only two wineries, but by 2000 that number had passed 100. Most of Washington's grape crop goes to uses other than wine. Merlot and Chardonnay have been the most successful in Washington. It's interesting to note that Washington's prime wine regions are located at 46° north, along the same latitude as the legendary French wine districts of Bordeaux and Burgundy. During the summer, Washington averages more than two hours more sunlight each day compared to California.
