2007 Cabernet Sauvignon
Elegant and intense, this Cabernet bursts with layers of red plum, black cherry and currant. A refined tannin structure mixes with cedar and spice to lead the way to a long, rich finish. The 2007 vintage is enjoyable now and will age gracefully when cellared.
With below average rainfall and extra days of sunshine in the winter of 2007, the vines saw an early bud break. A mild summer meant a long, even growing season that established beautiful acidity before a Labor Day heat spike brought sugar levels to a perfect balance. The dry season left berries and clusters smaller than usual, producing concentrated juice and powerful structure.
