    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2007 Pickberry is dark and dense in appearance. Perfumed ripe Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot scents of red currant, cassis, cured leaf tobacco and musk herald the chewy cassis flavors that highlight the impressively dense, spicy, mineral- driven firm, floral finish. This wine will age to graceful elegance in 10 to 15 years.

    Blend: 58% Merlot and 42% Cabernet Sauvignon

    Critical Acclaim:

    Musky aromas of red- and blackcurrant, tobacco, cocoa powder and herbs. Sappy and fresh, offering impressively concentrated red and black fruit flavors in a youthfully linear style. Tangy minerality adds lift to the back end, which is complicated by a medicinal character. Finishes firm, with note of cherry and candied flowers and dusty tannins. I'd bet on this aging very slowly.

    Joel Peterson's classic blend of merlot (58 percent) and cabernet sauvignon is packed with flavor detail in 2007. It tastes vinous rather than bluntly fruited as it evolves across the palate, yielding tart red berries, floral scents and game. The tannins have reached a chocolate ripeness, while the wine shows some acidity, framing it along the edges. Decant it for a thick-cut sirloin.

    Well, to give away the surprise, it certainly does! This is a classic Bordeaux style blend of Merlot (58%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (42%) from Sonoma Valley. This wine is a bright ruby color in the glass, and the nose is a fragrant blend of red fruit, tobacco, licorice and musk. The taste is surprisingly fruit forward, with hints of cherry and red currant at the front end, giving way to some complex mineral flavors mid-palate. The finish is wonderfully dry with the tangyness of the tannins providing a nice firm finish. The wine is still a little young, and will likely age quite well over the next decade or two.

    Really good wine. Taste like what you expect from a red wine. Full body. Good with red meat.

    It is hiding out in the cellar for a few more years to see how it evolves!
