The '07 Cabernet Sauvignon is the classic "iron fist in a velvet glove." Dark purple in color. Blackberries, cherries, rose petals, violets and vanilla bean on the nose. The wine is remarkably powerful and intense but somehow remains light and elegant on the palate, with flavors of cherries, blueberries, currants, cassis, tobacco, cocoa and vanilla. Super fine grained tannins lead into a finish that literally lasts for minutes.
This wine was amazing at the release party in April of 2010. Two and a half years later it is a sexy, opulent, hedonistic Cabernet Sauvignon. I think this is going to age beautifully as well.
