Winemaker's Notes

This vintage has a complex bouquet that combines fresh fruit and mineral hints with smooth spicy notes. Supple, juicy and aromatic on the palate. This wine is sheer enjoyment and can be enjoyed in two to three years, but it will continue to improve over the next decade.

Blend: 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

"This is a delicious wine already, not powerful, but charming and elegant. The acidity and fruit are easy and bright, the tannins light but properly in balance. That suggests this is not for aging. It’s already a pleasure to drink now. "
91 Points

"Bright ruby color. Perfumed, rather high-pitched aromas of cassis, licorice, minerals, bitter chocolate and camphor. Juicy, tight and pure, with slightly lean flavors of blueberry, blackberry, violet and fresh herbs given energy by juicy acidity. Quite stylish and firm for the year, if not quite as dense or structured as the 2006. Range: 88-91"
91 Points

"An outstanding effort, Branaire's 2007 exhibits floral-infused black raspberry, boysenberry, and mulberry notes as well as a decidedly blue fruit character. Attractive, elegant, and medium to full-bodied with beautiful fruit, density, and texture, it should drink well for 10-12 years."
