Dancing Hares Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

The 2007 Dancing Hares (39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot, aged 21 months in mostly new French oak) exhibits a sweet nose of white chocolate, forest floor, blueberry, bay leaf, and cassis. Terrific fruit intensity, an opulent, full-bodied mouthfeel, with the considerable exuberance that is so much a part of this vintageandrsquo;s personality, and a long, lush finish make for a super wine to drink over the next 15 or more years.

Dancing Hares Vineyard:
"We came into this business loving wine and loving Napa but also knowing that we wanted to work with the most respected people in the business – if they would have us!

"We came into this business loving wine and loving Napa but also knowing that we wanted to work with the most respected people in the business – if they would have us! Over the years we have come to not only thoroughly enjoy the members of our team, we have become friends. What better combination to produce something of which we are all very proud." "Since arriving in Napa in 1994, I have been drawn to wines derived from special vineyard sites. The Dancing Hares vineyard certainly has all of the elements that will lead to a very compelling wine. In my time here in the Napa Valley I have also been lucky to work with talented and passionate people. Meeting Bob and Paula, and seeing their serious commitment to the vineyard, it was easy to see that we would work well together." Andy has worked with some of Napa Valley’s premiere wine producers, including Newton Vineyard, Spottswoode, and Harlan Estate. He was the winemaker at Staglin Family Vineyard for the 2001 and 2002 vintages. Since that time Andy has taken on several winery clients, including Screaming Eagle, Dalla Valle, Arietta, Ovid and Dancing Hares Vineyard. Read less

Very dense and concentrated, complex and chunky, with a range of dried currant, blackberry, loamy earth, tar, sage and mineral flavors. Full-bodied, yet clamping down on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Best from 2013 through 2022.

The strongest wine of this trio looks to be the medium to full-bodied, plush, opulent, dark ruby/purple-colored 2007 Dancing Hares, a blend of 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Merlot, 21% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petit Verdot. This wine exhibits plenty of c... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2007 Dancing Hares Vineyard Red Wine 750ml
