Murphy-Goode 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon

Murphy-Goode Winery was founded in 1985 by three friends, Tim Murphy, Dale Goode and David Ready, with a family tradition of wine making that continues today under the present owners the Jackson Family of Kendall-Jackson fame. In the early days Murphy-Goode was known for their Fume Blanc and Chardonnay harvested entirely from their own vineyards. As the popularity of the wines grew they found the need for more vineyard space. They were able to satisfy the need by creating partnerships with neighbors and local farmers all of whom shared the same vision as Murphy-Goode. One such neighbor was fellow winemaker Jess Jackson who had such a strong belief in the vision that he purchased Murphy-Goode in 2006. The family wine making tradition continues today, with a focus more towards the Bordeaux style and Murphy-Goode offers several very good reds. Murphy-Goode wines are fantastic for almost any budget with a variety of wines under $20, but also offering some higher end wines as well.  Tonight we are having the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon one of the very reasonably priced wines under the $20 mark which is a dark bold Cab with cherry and blackberry flavors along with a hint of thyme. Blended with Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc, the wine finishes with a rich deep and complex mouth feel. Pair this with your pizza, your steak or just about anything you choose.  Also, when checking out the Murphy-Goode wines, be sure to try their Zinfandels…they know how to make them well too!
