The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon starts with appealing aromas of dark chocolate and purple violets as well as fully developed, dense flavors of dark fruit. Ripe, blackberry, black cherry and black beauty plums layer with cassis, beautifully balanced earthy notes and a hint of saddle leather. Polished tannins and a subtle, lingering finish create a stunning rendition of a classic Cabernet Sauvignon.
Another testament to the majestic 2007 vintage, not to mention the talents of Jean-François Pellet, this elegant cabernet is in every way a classic: complex scents of mushroom and tomato skin adorn a fruit palette of deep black cherry and plum. That mélange carries over beautifully into the flavors, but the real story here is the wine's gorgeous texture—so supple it's as if the tannins have been ground to a mouthcoating fineness, lending the wine uncanny elegance and length. Drinking beautifully now, it will reward a decade's cellaring.
This nicely captures the structural strengths of the ’07 vintage. It's a muscular wine, with excellent depth and polish. In the mouth it displays exceptional Cabernet/Bordeaux character, in the context of bright Washington fruit. Vivid and aromatic, with a lifted palate that blends and matches dark cassis fruit and mixed herbs with hints of the 50% new oak. Age this for decades.
The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon contains 10% Merlot, with the rest Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot. It was aged for 21 months in 52% new French oak. Deep purple in color, it exhibits an attractive perfume of cedar, Asian spices, mineral, incense, and black currant. Medium-bodied on the palate with excellent volume, concentration, and balance, it has the stuffing to evolve for 3-4 years. This lengthy effort will be at its best from 2013 to 2027.
