Tasting Notes:

"In this text book growing season, we harvested the grapes in perfect conditions about a week earlier than normal, early october. This 2007 wine was made with 100% cabernet sauvignon grapes from Napa Valley; it reveals delicate aromas of black currant, spices as black pepper and licorice on the nose and the mouthfeel brings a sense of finesse and depth. The velvety texture is combined with complex flavors of graphite, sweet cherry and rosemary finishing with refined tannins. We feel confident to think that this vintage will be remembered as one of the best" - Philippe Melka

Ratings & Reviews

94 Points & "Editor's Choice" - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Delicious and compelling 100% Cabernet from this great vintage. Shows classically developed, sweet Napa tannins and wonderfully ripe fruit. As expressive as the blackberries and currants are, they’re reined in with minerals and herbs to produce exquisite tension. Best now, with a good decant, and should develop for many years." - S.H. (8/1/2010)

93+ Points - Family Winemakers of California ('06 vintage):
"Big, deep cassis nose; rich cassis, plum and berry palate; medium-plus finish." -Richard Jennings, August 2008
