Our wine with dinner (WWD) last night was a robust Red Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon, 2004 PrefaceÂ from Page Cellars. We picked it up at our first visit to the Woodinville winery a couple of weekends ago. This vintage is so new that it isn’t even listed in the wine section on their WebÂ site yet, but Preface is Page Cellars’ signature wine. The 2000 and 2001 Preface were Bordeaux-style blends. The 2002 Preface was 84% Cabernet Sauvignon and 16% Cab Franc.
The 2004 Preface is 90% Cab and 10% Cab Franc–perfect with filet mignon or prime rib. I guess I don’t need to tell you what dinner we had with our wine.
There’s also news for fans of Page Cellars Limited Edition. The 2002 Limited Edition is sold out. But a new vintage will be released right before St. Nick’s Open House wine weekend in Woodinville. We are looking forward to tasting it then (Dec. 1 and 2). Hope to see you there!
