85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc.
Dark cranberry in color with a hint of baking spices in the nose. At first sip there's a sweetness of ripe plum with a touch of vanilla and oak. Finishes mid-palate with focused acidity and ends with an explosion of fruit pie flavors.
I am impressed with the structure of this wine. This shows intense aromas of crushed blackberries and blueberries that follow to a full body, with lots of fruit and a velvety tannin structure. Long and structured.
The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is a gorgeous example of elegance allied to power. The final blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc offers up notes of crushed rock, spring flowers, red and black currants, and plum as well as hints of white chocolate and subtle barrique smells. Medium to full-bodied, with a nicely layered mouthfeel that builds incrementally, the wine has superb purity as well as accessability. It can be drunk now or cellared for 15 or more years.
