Revana Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
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.
In 1997, while visiting the Napa Valley, Dr. Revana discovered a small parcel of prime vineyard land just north of the town of St. Helena. He immediately sensed the property’s potential. The area was already known for producing some of the world’s most sought after Cabernet Sauvignon, and the property’s gravelly soils, sloped pitch, and excellent exposures seemed perfect for growing grapes. Studies of the soil composition confirmed that it was an ideal location for premium Bordeaux varieties. His next step was to build a team that could implement his vision.
