Deep purple at the core lightening ever so slightly to a very dark ruby to the edge of the rim.

Combines rich, savory herb, dried currant, hazelnut and tobacco with mineral and cedary oak. Full-bodied, firm and structured, yet showing signs of suppleness in texture. Best from 2010 through 2016.
The finest wine I have yet tasted from Piero Antinori's rocky hillside vineyard on Soda Canyon Road in southeast Napa, this 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon boasts a dense purple color along with a rich, sumptuous bouquet of licorice, creme de cassis, and smoky oak. This opulent, fleshy, full-bodied wine exhibits beautiful purity and concentrated fruit. It should age nicely for 15-20 years. Impressive... and reasonably priced!
1n 1993, Antinori purchased the Townsend Vineyard, a property adjacent to the family's Atlas Peak estate that's planted to four clones of cabernet sauvignon. In 2007, the small, concentrated berries from that vineyard produced this tight and savory red, a wine with length and breadth, seriously delicious. The fruit ranges from sweet red currant to lush blueberry and blackberry, hinting at eucalyptus and herbs along the way. The earthiness of the tannin provides stature to all that fruit, and will sustain it through long years of development in the cellar.
