Below are the January, 2007 Featured Wines for the Wines by Jennifer Wine Club.


White Wine


2005 Bodegas Cerrosol

Verdejo

Rueda, Spain

 

2005 Bodegas Cerrosol VerdejoIn 1997, José María Vegas founded Bodegas y Viñedos Vega Real, a winery dedicated to the production of quality wines from the Ribera del Duero D.O.

Recently, seeking to capitalize on the increasing quality that the wines of Rueda were showing, the winery decided to market white wines from the D.O. Rueda. The family winery of Bodegas Cerrosol was chosen for this venture.

The winery is located in Castilla y León, a privileged area not only because of its location, but because it is also surrounded by old Verdejo grape vineyards. The founder's philosophy has been to craft wines sourced from these old vineyards using the most current technology and wine making methods in order to obtain the maximum potential from the Verdejo grape which is so prevalent in this area.

The winery sources all the fruit from the surrounding village's vineyards, mostly from small plots of less than three hectares each. Bodegas Cerrosol is now the leading wine producer in the Rueda D.O. with 3.5 millions liters annually.

This wine is green-yellow, clean and bright. Very intense on the nose, where tropical fruits predominate over a floral background with memories of lime and camomile. Round, soft and unctuous on the palate, with an elegant and persistent finish.

Red Wine


2004 Hedges CMS Red

Cabernet Sauvignon - Merlot - Syrah

Columbia Valley, Washington State


2004 Hedges CMS Red
Aromas of toasted oak, butterscotch, black licorice, clove spice, and dark fruit. On the palate, raspberry and blackberry with toasted oak, vanilla, clove, and hints of caramel and cassis. Firm but balanced tannins, medium-plus body, fruit and vanilla sweetness, nice acidity and a long finish.

The pleasing, soft, fruit-forward entry of this wine makes it drinkable now but the darker, richer fruit, acidity and firm but balanced tannins, in addition to the large percentage of Red Mountain grapes used in the blend, should make this wine one that will improve over the next two to five years.

Grapes come from the Yakima Valley Vineyards of O’Brien and Willard, the Horse Heaven vineyard Destiny Ridge, the Columbia Valley vineyards of Bacchus, Weinbau and Sagemoor (all part of Sagemoor Farms) and Goose Ridge and the Red Mountain Vineyards of Bel Villa, Hedges and RMV (21% Red Mountain total). About 80% French oak and 20% American oak, with some lots stored for up to one year in barrels.

The blend is 39% Cabernet, 57% Merlot, and 4% Syrah.
