Winemaker's Notes

The 2007 GEMSTONE could be the finest wine we have ever bottled. The 2007 season had very consistent temperatures, allowing our fruit to ripen at a very steady pace and making for ideal flavor development. Conditions like these allow us to be very selective and to pick at exactly the desired level of maturity. Our fruit was harvested in late September and early October, and after 20 months aging in 70% new French oak, the wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered. The 2007 Gemstone exhibits a profound garnet color in the glass. On the nose, the wine reveals a complex bouquet of ripe blue and black fruits layered with crushed stones, exotic spice, and elegant oak; Soft and extremely rich in the mouth; it has a full body with great purity and perfect texture, soft sweet tannins and sex appeal. The wine's depth and complexity suggest a very long aging potential.

Critical Acclaim

"Wonderfully complex aromas lead to firm, intense and concentrated flavors, showing a well-structured mix of black licorice, blackberry, plum and black cherry, with touches of graphite and mineral. Ends with tight, chewy yet ripe tannins that support the flavors. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2011 through 2022."
95 Points

"The dense ruby/purple-colored 2007 Gemstone (90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, and 3% Cabernet Franc) reveals notes of ink, graphite, camphor, and sumptuous amounts of blue and black fruits along with an unmistakable minerality. This is a full-bodied, dense yet elegant red possessing both power and concentration that have not compromised its ethereal characteristics. Drink this beauty over the next 20-25+ years."
95 Points

"Bright ruby. Superripe aromas of kirsch and gravel, plus hints of licorice and dusty herbs; still quite youthfully unforthcoming. Dense and sweet but not at all over the top; shows a hot rock character and pronounced minerality that reminds me of Graves. The slightly liqueur-like quality continues on the palate, but this backward wine needs time to express itself. Finishes solidly tannic, with a pungent licorice quality and firm, dusty tannins. Showing the masculine side of cabernet.
91(+?) points."

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
