Winemaker Notes

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

The balanced 2007 growing season allowed foreven ripening throughout each of our Cabernetvineyards. Early in the fermentation the berriesrevealed concentrated fruit forward flavors andexcellent color indicating the high quality of the2007 vintage.

The wine is deeply pigmented and has aromaticsof perfectly ripe blackberries, plum, notes ofdark chocolate, licorice and spice. The palate isrefined and has exceptional texture and length.

Critical Acclaim

ST 91
International Wine Cellar

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.

RP 91
The Wine Advocate

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

WS 91
Wine Spectator

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.
