The Vintage

The 2007 growing season began with a dry, warm winter and spring,resulting in early budbreak, bloom and grape set. Low soil moisture curtailed foliage growth, ensuring the grape clusters enjoyed ample sunshine during a mild summer in which temperatures rarely reached 90 degrees. The cooler-than-normal weather fostered slow, even ripening, a relaxed, well-paced harvest, and wines with deeply concentrated, expressive flavors.

The Wine

Simply put, it’s luxury in a glass. Boasting dense, magnificently concentrated blackcurrant, dark cherry and boysenberry fruit aromas mingled with seductive dark chocolate, sage, leather and sweet vanilla scents, the wine’s intense cassis, black cherry and blackberry flavors explode on the palate, segueing into a deliciously long, savory and decadent, chocolate-filled finish. The eager will drink it now; the wise will sequester it for a decade or more.

Food Affinities

Fine cuts of beef and lamb, as well as hearty stews like cassoulet.
