“In 2007, a warm spring followed a dry winter, so bud-break came earlier, hinting at an early harvest. However, the relatively cool summer slowed things down and simultaneously allowed wonderful flavor development in the grapes. 2007 remains one of the most highly touted vintages of the decade, offering wines that are rich, ripe, and voluptuous—in short, crowd-pleasing wines.
Our 2007 Red is dark ruby in color, nearly opaque. Still very youthful the wine delivers classic aromas of cassis, blackberry, bay, and hint of green olive. Secondary aromas include floral notes—rose petal and lavender—and dried herb—sage and thyme. Sweet toasty oak completes the package. The flavors reflect the nose, and are deep, rich and expansive. Nevertheless, the structure is firm and angular enough to sustain the wine for a decade or more.”
Yes, indeed! A blend of 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 6% Cabernet Franc. This top-notch vintage is aging gracefully.
