Our 2007 Napa Cabernet is very dark red in color with aromas of currents, black cherry, violets, and cedar along with vanilla and toasty oak. The mouthfeel is generous with fine tannins and a long finish.
We recommend pairing this wine with a seared NY strip steak.
Typical of the 2007 vintage, this cabernet will drink very well in its youth, but will age gracefully for the next 10 years and beyond.
"Just delicious, this wine shows its pedigree from some of the best vineyards in the valley, including Merryvale's St. Helena estate. Dry and rich in firm but refined tannins, it offers elaborate flavors of blueberries and cherries, while 70
% new oak adds layers of buttered toast and caramel. Great for drinking now with the best meats and cheeses you can find."
"This firm, intense and vibrant red offers a tight mix of loamy earth, dried currant and berry, sage, anise and cedar flavors. Full-bodied, ending with a streamlined, layered finish. Best from 2012 through 2021."
"Another winner is the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa which includes 1% Cabernet Franc. It possesses abundant notes of creme de cassis intermixed with a floral underpinning and subtle oak in the background. Rich and full-bodied with a burning ember/smoky component that adds character to the red and black fruits that dominate the wine, this beauty should drink well for 15+ years."
