9 Great Cabs to Try Now 2007 Ferrari-Carano Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, 14.5%
TOP SCORER: Immediately rather complex with wood spice tones augmented by a lovely gentle herbal element that helps to frame the core of black and red currant fruit. There’s a fine little earthy streak, as well with a soft root cellar note. This is opulent on entry, rich and seamless with masses of dark, currant fruit backed up by notes of black olive, toast and very gentle vegetal notes. A big wine but well-crafted, in the modern style no doubt; and perhaps a bit too soft, but full of rich, dark fruit that powers across the long finish. I would like to see a bit more brightness here but there is no denying the depth and complexity. Finishes with carob and dried fruit notes along with the toasty wood spice. 91pts

    I love the Château Edmus Saint-Émilion Grand Cru! Just tried it a few months ago and gave it two #WKBadges:

    It's 85% Merlot and 15% Cab Franc and now Cab Sauv, however.
