Dark red-black in color with intense aromas of blackberry, black cherry, and currants interwoven with burnt toast and tar. Additional layers on the nose of rich spice with added hints of vanilla and maple. There are background notes of pencil lead as well. On the palate flavors of sweet ripe raspberries come through and the wine has smooth tannins and creamy weight with an impeccable balance and a long finish.
Sequoia Grove's 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon has gotten even better since I tasted it last year (when I rated it 87). Still young and well-balanced with outstanding potential, it will improve even more with 3-4 more years of bottle age. Tightly-knit with lots of tannin but also copious quantities of black cherry and black currant fruit intermixed with notions of spice box, oak and earth, this elegant Cabernet should evolve for 15-20 years.
