#4 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010
The 2007 vintage will be remembered as one of the best of the decade. This wine is a delicious blend of our Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Black raspberry in color with aromas of blackberry, currant and layers of sweet toasty French oak. Perfect ripeness allowed for a wine of great depth and structure, flavors that mirror the nose and a wine that, while tasty now, will age beautifully. The mouthfeel has a lovely combination of power with extreme silkiness and flavors that carry a long time on the finish. A great example from our Estate here in St. Helena.
"Aromas of roasted herb, red pepper and sage are complex, elegant and spicy, joined by ripe currant, plum and black cherry fruit, but this is at its best on the full-bodied palate, where the texture is supple, graceful and polished. Drink now through 2020."
