2009 Seven of Hearts Coupe’s Cuvee Dessert Wine Willamette Valley

Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar, July/August 2011. By: Josh Raynolds. Bright red.  Perfumed bouquet evokes candied red berries, cherry pie and orange marmalade, with musky herb and spice notes adding complexity.  Sweet and broad, with gently viscous red fruit preserve flavors.  Wild stuff, offering an appealing blend of richness and energy; weighty but not thick.  The sweet finish clings with very good sappy intensity.  This would be superb with Oregon’s Rogue Creamery Smokey Blue cheese, which is a must-try, by the way. 92 points
