    Winemaker's Notes:

    Intense, deep, ruby-red in color with a bright purplish hue. The nose recalls cherries, cassis, truffles, and blueberries over a backdrop of black pepper and subtle notes of chocolate and cedar. The palate shows firm, ripe tannins that ensure excellent longevity in the bottle. This is a voluptuous wine full of ripe fruit flavors, notes of cedar, cloves, and cinnamon, with excellent acidity that lends freshness, balance, and elegance. The long and very elegant finish shows the wine's youth today and will gain in complexity with time in the bottle.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2007 Don Maximiano Founder’s Reserve is composed of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 6% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Syrah that spent 20 months in new French oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it surrenders an enticing nose of toasty new oak, graphite, scorched earth, cinnamon, clove, violets, blueberry, and blackberry. On the palate, it reveals a suave personality that combines elegance and power. Impeccably balanced, it has the structure to evolve for 4-6 years and should provide pleasure through 2027.

    Rich and ripe, with nicely polished focus to the mocha, tobacco, mulled currant and fig notes, all backed by coffee and dark licorice notes on the lengthy finish. There's nice underlying grip. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2011. 100 cases imported.

    Wine Spectator

    Deep and dense wine, with beet, floral and black fruit aromas. The palate offers good acidity, balance, richness and complexity, while the flavor profile of raspberry, plum and dry herbs is attractive. Finishes mildly toasty, with a hint of herbs and tomato. Best from 2011–14.

    Had this for the first time over the weekend at a dinner with lamb as main course. Fabulous - decanted for about an hour with great result. My daughter claimed it was the best wine she has ever tasted !
