Winemaker Notes

The 2007 IX Estate Red is a strikingly deep ruby color and the nose a concentrated elixir of all the wonderful aromatics I love about IX Estate. In 2007, the flavors of the terroir are more dominant than ever. This vintage just has more of everything it seems. Terroir driven flavors of crushed rock, wet graphite, bay leaf and barbecue rub saturate the wine. Aromas of grilled meats, fennel seed, and a lift of black licorice bring seduction to the nose. With a sip, the pliant, silky tannins melt over the palate. The 2007 is dense to the core in every way, but at the same time it is open, expressive and alluring. It will drink well near term with its supple, rich tannins, but patience will be greatly rewarded, as the structure and natural acidity beneath will allow the wine to age 30 years or more.

RP 100
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2007 IX Proprietary Red Estate (69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot) exhibits the biggest bouquet of all these wines. Terrific blueberry and blackberry fruit intermixed with incense, minerals, espresso, and white chocolate are followed by a wine with staggering concentration yet thrilling balance and symmetry. This is a tour de force in winemaking from a great, great site at an elevation of 900-1,000 feet. It should drink well for 30+ years. Range: 98-100
WS 97
Wine Spectator
Classy, intense and vibrant, full-bodied and layered, with wonderful balance, this red delivers vivid blackberry, wild berry, mineral, anise and dusty, cedary oak flavors that are trim and focused, yet expansive, as they unfold. Ends with a long, detailed finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2011 through 2021.

James Suckling
Beautiful aromas of flowers, currants, violets, and mint. The palate is incredibly elegant, full bodied, polished tannins, and beautiful fruit. A nice finish of minerals, slate, and sandalwood. This is very reserved right now, Don't touch this for another six years at least. 15+25+23+34. Find this wine.

A major force on the global playing field, California is the world’s fourth largest wine-producing region on the planet and the majority of land under vine here is devoted to red varieties—they cover nearly double the vineyard acreage compared to whites.

While the state’s incredibly diverse terrain and microclimates allow for countless red wine styles, the one factor unifying all California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season, which leads to well-developed and fully ripened fruit.

The most famous region today, of course, is the acclaimed Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Bordeaux Blends garner global attention and in some cases, cult status.

Sonoma County, nestled between Napa Valley and the Pacific Ocean, claims great variability in geography and microclimates with vineyards climbing up mountains, reaching far into valleys and stretching along some the state’s most dramatic coastlines. Here world-class Pinot Noir is possible from Sonoma’s cooler sites while Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon do well in its warmer locations.

The Central Coast, Lodi and the Sierra Foothills also excel in the production of Zinfandel, and remain active new frontiers for Rhône and Spanish varieties.

Mendocino in California’s cool North Coast region is a fantastic source of Pinot noir.

Winemaking in California dates back to the 18th century when Spanish missionaries planted the first wine grapes. But the industry experienced its first boom with the Gold Rush in the last half of the 19th century when miners brought vines to the Sierra Foothills.
