Our Haystack Cabernet is true to its mountain origins. The wine boasts intense purple color and floral aromatics. Firm tannins are gracefully balanced by luscious ripe black fruit flavors and nuances of coffee, baking spice and cocoa.
The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Haystack Vineyard from Atlas Peak gets my top points. Made of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot, this is a dense purple-colored wine with a serious aromatic expression filled with espresso roast, black chocolate, creme de cassis, and rose petals. Full-bodied, with beautiful texture, sweet tannin, and stunning concentration, this is a dense, opulent, blockbuster style of Cabernet Sauvignon that will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring and last for 20-25 years.
A wonderful Cabernet, rich and dry. The alcohol is fairly high, but in keeping with the wine's power. The fruity blackberry and currant flavors are balanced by refreshingly earthy notes of olives and sweet herbs. Should develop through 2013.
