2007 Twisted Tree Six Vines

December 6, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

This past weekend, a few friends and I shared a bottle of Twisted Tree’s Six Vines from their 2007 vintage.  I have previously tasted and shared my experience with the 2006 vintage, and was incredibly impressed (see my post here).  That being said, I had high expectations for this bottle.

2007 Twisted Tree Six VinesTo recap from my earlier post,  the Six Vines is a blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc, carmenere, petit verdot, and malbec and each of the wines was fermented in oak barrels.  In this vintage, I noticed much more of the oak than I did in the 2006.

The additional oaky flavour was a bit of a surprise to some of us.  But for those of us who enjoy oaky wines, it was a pleasant surprise.  For those of us who prefer sweeter wines (ie. the ladies), it was not as nice.

I have also found lately that a few 2007 wines have not been as great as their 2006 counterparts.  Not sure if this is a fair assessment, but it appears that 2007 may not have been as great of a year in the Okanagan Valley, while 2006 was possibly one of the best.

By holding this wine to its 2006 counterpart, it was not quite a good.  But overall, still a great bottle of wine.  Perhaps this one just need a little bit more time.
