    Winemaker's Notes:

    Open, inviting aromas of dark black fruit blossoms in the glass, underlain with sweet cassis and lovely touches of blueberry, violets, roasted coffee and spicy oak. An abundance of rich, deep black and blue fruit wraps around a core of polished tannins, intermixed with black currant, dark cocoa and spice. A continuum of luscious flavors carries forward through the generous finish, enlivened by crisp acidity and mineral notes. This is a rich, multi-layered Cabernet that balances power with finesse.

    Blend: 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, 8% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, 1% Malbec

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2007 Affinity exhibits more graphite, but in essence is similarly elegant, with supple tannins (although more velvety than in the 2006), very young, primary black and blue fruit notes, and superb concentration, texture, and length. This is an exceptionally promising wine that is still hiding behind a rather primary display of fruit. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring and drink it over the next 15 or possibly 20 years.
