The 1990 vintage of this wine was ranked #7 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 1993
The 2007 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon weaves warm aromas of cassis and tobacco into a bright canvas of raspberry, plum, and currant notes. On the palate, flavors of black cherry and boysenberry meet hints of vanilla, bay, and mocha beneath a generous structure of round, mouth-filling tannins. This big, brambly wine with bold mountain character is richly expressed with layers evolving through the full, lingering finish.
Perfectly smooth and dry. Excellent with beef, pasta with red sauces, etc.
Unusually good character out of the bottle. Bold statement of earthy tobacco laden layers. Great depth for 2007. Excellent value.
I was hoping for a little more from this wine. A little dry on the finish but it had nice full flavor. Not sure I would buy it again for the price, perhaps...
