2006 Cabernet Sauvignon:
Our Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with Merlot to add suppleness and breadth to the palate. Aromas and flavors of chocolate, raspberry and black cherry overlay a smooth and velvety texture.
Osprey’s Dominion Merlot offers classic dark plum aromas with blackberry preserves, sweet cedar, smoke and vanilla. And while the nose is rather fruity, the palate isn’t overly so with rich flavors of chocolate, mint and tobacco joining the party. The medium tannins are there, but not overly aggressive. With another year or so in bottle they should integrate even more. Overall, this wine is medium on body but full on flavor.
Our Riesling is refreshing and versatile. It has aromas and flavors of apricots and citrus peel, with floral highlights, that are layered over a mineral core.
The classy Osprey’s Dominion Vineyards Gewurztraminer displays classic aromas of rose petals, lychee nut, and ginger-spice. The palate fills the mouth with gewurzt character – floral, spicy and with just a little fresh apple flavor. Sometimes gewurzt can taste flabby – it’s naturally low in acid – but not this one. With just a little residual sugar, nice effort with nice balance.
