    Winemaker's Notes:

    84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 1% Malbec.

    The balanced 2007 growing season allowed for even ripening throughout each of our Cabernet vineyards. Early in the fermentation the berries revealed concentrated fruit forward flavors and excellent color indicating the high quality of the 2007 vintage.

    The wine is deeply pigmented and has aromatics of perfectly ripe blackberries, plum, notes of dark chocolate, licorice and spice. The palate is refined and has exceptional texture and length.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Firm, intense, concentrated and well-structured, with tight dried currant, cedar, dried herb and sage flavors. Full-bodied, gaining depth and range on the finish before the tannins take hold. Best from 2011 through 2020.

    The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa (20,000 cases produced) may be the finest regular cuvee produced here in nearly two decades. Its dense ruby/purple hue is followed by an opulent bouquet of cassis, blue fruits, crushed rocks, and floral undertones. Pure, juicy, deep, medium to full-bodied, and loaded, this 2007 should drink beautifully young, yet keep for 15-20+ years

    Good deep ruby-red. Sweet, open aromas of ripe plum and currant complemented by chocolatey oak. In a fat, lush style, showing the sweetness of the vintage in spades. Not a particularly gripping wine but one that should give considerable early pleasure. The substantial tannins are dusty and fine.

    Big, sweet, jammy. Not enough spice or oak.
