2007 Cabernet Sauvignon • Napa Valley
Our 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon boasts distinctive flavors of which were heightened with the 2007 growing season. Deep and concentrated with balance and structure. Bright aromas of roses, tobacco and spice lead to a full palate of blackberries, cherries and cocoa. The mid-palate is full and leads to a bright long finish of cherries, caramel, spice, cassis and coffee. The mouth is full, supple, and rich. Flavors of chocolate, espresso, and plum add to the lengthy finish.
Fermented in small open top tanks and punched down four times per day. Barrel aged 18 months in 80% new French oak. 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8.5% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petite Sirah, 0.5% Malbec.
Our Napa Valley vineyards are in the heart of the valley. The vineyard's east west row orientation helps maximum ripeness. Oakville is ground zero for Napa Cabernet, and with good reason. Year over year it produces some of the most tremendous wines in the valley. It's hard to say that one particular area of Napa truly produces the best Cabernet, but it's also hard to find someplace that has more claim to that title than the Oakville AVA. We added a touch of our massive Petite Sirah from Oakley to lengthen the finish.
