Supple yet robust with exotic aromas of frankincense, espresso bean and tobacco leaf. Silky impressions of black currant, fresh rosemary, dark cocoa and an alluring mineral edge encompass the palate. This wine possesses immense concentration and power, while retaining sublime elegance.
"Reaching a nice drinking stage, with the currant, blueberry and wild berry flavors turning fleshy, offering hints of cedar, anise, tobacco, dried herb and loamy earth. Very complex and supple. Drink now through 2020."—J.L.
"An enormous Cabernet. Explodes with flavors of blackberries, cassis and chocolate, as well as the sweet vanilla and toast from oak barrels. It’s gentle enough to drink now, but isn’t showing much nuance. Give it five or six years in the cellar."—SH
INTERNATIONAL WINE CELLAR - 2007 Veraison Cabernet Sauvignon
"Dark red. Aromas of currant, blueberry, licorice and bitter chocolate, plus a whiff of tar. Densely packed and attractively sweet, with ripe acidity framing the dark berry flavors. A bit youthfully medicinal but in a relaxed, supple way. Finishes with well-buffered tannins and a lingering minty nuance. Nicely balanced cabernet."–ST
