Winemaker Notes

The Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is the massive blockbuster from a vintage that produced nothing but massive blockbusters on the ranch. Phenomenal structure demands attention, while the palate explodes with concentrated fruit. Despite its heft, the wine is also supple, expressing flavors of blueberry, plum, cherry and forest floor. The blend is 77% Rock Arch Cabernet, with its characteristic blue-black hue and powerful but ripe tannins, blended with 14% Rim Rock Cabernet, 8% Carolyn's Cabernet, and just 1% Petit Verdot to add brightness and balance.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 95
The Wine Advocate

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a slightly more brooding and formidably endowed effort displaying more extract, tannin and structure. In spite of its massive size, concentration and extract, it possesses gorgeously sweet tannins as well as a sense of equilibrium. This powerhouse will benefit from another 1-3 years of bottle age and should keep for 15 or more years.

WS 94
Wine Spectator

A rich, savory style, thick and concentrated, offering firm cedar, black licorice, mineral and graphite, with a touch of espresso and tar. Full-bodied, chewy and complex, very backward now but sure to reward.

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast

Utterly delicious, so soft and refined. It’s like blackberry and cherry pastries and cookies melted into wine, enhanced with squirts of cassis, anisette and chocolate sauce. Defines the California, and moreover the Pride Mountain, style, a flashy, flamboyant wine...

Bordeaux Blends

View all wine

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World, especially in California, Washington, and Australia. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot, these are sometimes referred to in the US as “Meritage” blends. In Bordeaux itself, Cabernet Sauvignon dominates in wines from the Left Bank of the Gironde river, while the Right Bank focuses on Merlot. Often, blends from outside the region are classified as being inspired by one or the other.

In the Glass

Cabernet-based, Left-Bank-styled wines are typically more tannic and structured, while Merlot-based wines modeled after the Right Bank are softer and suppler. Cabernet Franc can add herbal notes, while Malbec and Petit Verdot contribute color and structure. Wines from Bordeaux can be bold and fruit-forward or restrained and earthy, while New World facsimiles tend to emulate the former style. In general, Bordeaux red blends can have aromas and flavors of black currant, cedar, plum, graphite, and violet, with more red fruit flavors when Merlot makes up a high proportion of the blend.

Perfect Pairings

Since Bordeaux red blends are often quite structured and tannic, they pair best with hearty, flavorful, and fatty meat dishes. Any type of steak makes for a classic pairing. Equally welcome with these wines would be beef brisket, pot roast, braised lamb, or smoked duck.

Sommelier Secret

While the region of Bordeaux is limited to a select few approved grape varieties, the New World is free to experiment. Bordeaux blends in California may include Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, or virtually any other grape deemed worthy by the winemaker. In Australia, Shiraz is a common component.
