Though stamped with the unique signature of Carlos Lee, this wine has all the usual trademarks of the variety with that softer, more herbal nose; on the palate the wine has good complexity and elegance with light red fruit and excellent pH balance - somewhat between a Cali "over-the-top" interpretation (say Sonoma) and a fine Cab Franc dominated Bordeaux. Not quite a in the league of Cheval Blanc, but getting there at much less cost. 91 points.

Although this is not the first time I have tasted the 2007, it is the first time I have had time to savour it. Not quite as rich as the 2008, it is nevertheless an elegant CF with a depth of a California wine yet the bracing acidity of a Bourgueil (Loire). It has the earth and grassy herbs of a northern expression of this variety, but is very, very French in a unique way. Easily the equal of a 50-70 dollar wine from the right bank of the Dordogne. Not cheap but good value in this market. 90 points.
