I have lamented the change of style in Napa Valley's Cabernets. Gone are the balanced, nuanced wines of years past that needed time to show their innate depth and elegance, replaced instead by blueberry and chocolate bombs with the texture of a milk shake. If you prefer something more traditional, the 2007 Kuleto India Ink Cabernet Sauvignon is going to knock your socks off.
Right now, this is only available from the winery. Once word gets out about this wine, it might not even make it to distribution. This is a monster of a wine, powerful and rich but painfully young. There's incredible depth of fruit to this wine, but it's not going to come out and play today. Instead it's going to make you work for your rewards. When everything finally comes into balance, this will be one for the ages. Simply phenomenal stuff!
