Profound and intense, this Cabernet casts aromas of dark, concentrated fruit, warm vanilla and star anise around a powerful mid-palate of vibrant huckleberry, blackberry and currant flavors. Its well-defined structure is accentuated by notes of freshly cut oregano, lemon verbena and bay leaves woven into the firm, seamless tannins. Continuing in the tradition of bold yet graceful Napa Valley Cabernets, this wine captivates with a lengthy, enduring finish.
Varietal blend: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petite Verdot, 1% Malbec
"It is hard to find a better value than the outstanding 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon (which may even be discounted for under $25 a bottle). This sleeper of the vintage exhibits an opaque ruby/purple color as well as loads of cassis, blackberry, graphite, and cedar notes. Full-bodied, rich, and concentrated with silky tannins and a lush, generous constitution, this beauty is capable of lasting 10-15 years."
The Wine Advocate
"Good deep ruby-red. Aromatic nose combines currant, flowers, menthol, mint and fresh herbs (I might have said garrigue). Then sweet and lush but suave and not at all exaggerated, with very good tannic support to the red fruit and lavender flavors."
