Winemaker's Notes

A blend of the best lots from Mill Creek Upland, Seven Hills and Loess vineyards, this Cab-dominated blend also includes 12% Petit Verdot, 11% Malbec and 2% Merlot. It's quite slick on the palate, with good texture from well-integrated tannins. The fruit is dark and brooding - black cherry and wild blackberry - with a hint of rose, smoke and cedar.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Reserve is composed of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 11% Petit Verdot, and 9% Cabernet Franc aged for 23 months in new and seasoned French oak. Deep purple colored, it displays aromas of pain grille, earth notes, espresso, violets, black currant, and blackberry. Dense and rich on the palate with restraint and elegance, this lengthy effort will reward 5-7 years of patience from those who buy it. "
96 Points

"Good deep ruby-red. Cabernet-dominated aromas of currant, red cherry, licorice, graphite and minerals. Juicy, powerful and penetrating, with bright red berry and mineral flavors. With a few minutes in the glass, this blend showed a much plusher texture and a building sweetness without going at all over the top. This very young and refined wine did not knock me out in the early going quite like the 2006 had last year, but it's long on potential and will need another look in seven or eight years. 93(+?) points."
