    Winemaker's Notes:

    The appearance is opaque dark ruby with reddish hues. On the nose, this wine shows black currant, blackberry compote, juniper berry and dark chocolate, with cinnamon and clove. The oak is well integrated with a slight nuance of aromatic cedar. The flavor has full cherry-berry notes with cassis and a fleshy mid-palate over a bed of resolved tannins. A very inviting wine, it is full flavored from start to finish, with a very long lingering fruitfulness.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Shows all the hallmarks of an ageable wine. It's bone dry, big and hard in tannins, and densely packed with blackberries, cherries, cola, licorice and smoky cedar notes. Nowhere near ready. Better after 2015.

    This starts off as black satin, mostly tannin and dark fruit, before air brings up more distinct black cherry and earth in the middle of the wine. The plush texture doesn't get in the way of the firm structue, allowing the wine to build complexity as it develops in teh glass. Cellar it for a few years or decant a bottle for roast leg of lamb.

    Reel Pour Andrew (7/22/2011)
    Critically acclaimed 92+ by 2 different sources.... I am not one of them. Although I do think this wine will age well it's not ready yet. Very Hot on the nose, even after 10 minutes of swirling. notes of smoke and plum, uncomplex but pleasantly so. Lighter body than I expected from a cab and soft subtle tannins. After my tasting was over I went home and I checked what others wrote about it and wonder if I had the same wine they did... oh well

    This is what '07 is known for: balance of fruit and structure. This wine definitely displays that. Lots of dark fruit up front, backed by a hint of cedar. Good, firm tannins, round mouthfeel and an excellent finish show these are ready for drinking now OR evolving for a few more years. One I'd love with a juicy steak, lamb or other hearty meal.
