Fenestra 2008 Livermore Valley Ghielmetti Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

There is not much more to say about this wine except that you must go out to Fenestra and pick up a bottle or two…or three….or four…..Fenestra, located at 83 Vallecitos Road in Livermore is a location that is a no brainer when it comes to great wines.  Fenestra boasts several varietals and vintages that will make your heart skip a beat.  Plan on spending some time here, there are several tastings that you will try.  Perhaps you should take a couple of hours, bring a picnic lunch and enjoy these glorious, hand crafted tastings slowly.   I did not have the luxury of time the day that I most recently visited Fenestra, but I can tell you that I enjoyed each varietal.  Bottom line, I came home with a bottle of the 2008 Livermore Valley Ghielmetti Vineyard Cabernet Saugvingon.  Dark, deep berry in color, this wine was smooth, with balanced fruit, floral, and chocolate notes.  Light on the tannins, full in body.  This cab would be spectacular with pasta, steak, pork chops, or all by it’s lonesome!  Next time you have a free moment, check out Fenestra Winery, a true Livermore treasure.
