This wine shows the earthiness of Cabernet Franc and the polish of Cabernet Sauvignon. This fruit forward wine has aromas and flavors red fruits- cranberry and cassis and dark cocoa, finishing mild pepper. The soft oak flavors and tannins are well integrated. Drinkable upon release. Age worthy for another decade or more. We expect the ’07 vintage to be a long-lived wine.
The 2007 vintage has an intellectual restraint that translated into consummate sophistication. Popular with wine collectors who appreciate the elegance of a wine that reveals itself step by step with complex nuances.

If you like Cabernet and Chocolate- this is your wine- but only dark chocolate. We recommend 60-70% cocoa! It compliments Prime Rib and Filet Mignon beautifully.
