Bennett Lane Maximus Red Blend 2007
from Napa Valley, California
The wine opens with bright aromas of blackberry, dark cherry and cassis. On the palate, the wine displays flavors of rich, dark berries and mocha. With elegant, velvety tannins, the wine has a long fruit driven finish.
Blend: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 10% Syrah, 6% Malbec, 3% Cabernet Franc
alcohol by volume:
"Tastes dramatic and youthfully vital, with fat, fleshy flavors of blackberries, cassis, mocha and sweet cedar, as well as a mineral tang that grounds them. Very upscale and refined, a pure product of superior terroir and winemaking."
"Enticingly complex, rich and layered, showing fresh, vibrant blackberry, wild berry, cedar and spice flavors, with a texture that's both supple and firm. Full-bodied, with a long, lingering finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Malbec and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2020."
"The 2007 Maximus Red Feasting Wine (65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 10% Syrah, 6% Malbec and 3% Cabernet Franc) exhibits a dark ruby/purple color along with notions of cedar, licorice, black currants, chocolate and coffee. This medium to full-bodied 2007 should drink nicely for a decade or more."
