Briar Rose Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Temecula Valley Linkogle Estate Collection 2007

Member Review by Tyler Worth:

95 points. The ripe, blackberries and blackcurrants on the nose are incredibly intense, and there is an amazing amount of refinement to this wine’s aroma. It’s peppery and full of berry preserves, accented by a subtle smoky tone. Simply put, it’s complex, exciting, and very inviting. This wine is unbelievably sweet and ripe, with fantastic intensity and loads of framboise and blackberry preserves. There are tones of black stone, mint, and struck match, with incredible richness. The finish is just as impressive as the main palate, and there are tons of flowers, coffee beans, and wild honey essences lingering endlessly after the wine is gone. This is a beautifully hedonistic wine, with exceptional elegance and expression. It’s big and jammy, but perfectly balanced and endlessly complex.

Briar Rose Winery is located in Temecula, California and has the proud distinction of being the Temecula Valley's premier boutique winery. We strive to produce handcrafted, small lot, premium, artisan wines made from the most intensely flavored grapes from our lush vineyards. Many years ago before real estate developers discovered Temecula, the valley was dotted with small, family owned farms, orchards, and vineyards. Our winery is the fruition of owner's Les and Dorian Linkogle's lifelong dream and marks a return to those idyllic times as Temecula's first, reservation only (click here to make) winery. In a sense the Linkogle's have come full circle and want to celebrate the return to a small, family-owned business. We welcome you to enjoy our wines, wander the gardens and savor the enchantment. You will walk away not with just a the best wine tasting experience, but a memory. Annually, we produce about 2,400 cases, some of which have received "cult wine" status by wine connoisseurs. Specializing in red varietals, the estate-grown offerings include an intense award winning Estate Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, and a super Tuscan blend. Other offerings include a lively, fruity Sangiovese and Merlot. Our white varietals include a Viognier, and a Fume Blanc. Our newest release is a sweet and effervescent wine lager called "Talking Frog". Whether its your first or your next Temecula wine tasting trip, we invite you to come visit our Temecula winery (located in Southern California) and "Taste the Enchantment" of our premium, award winning wines.
