Tasting Notes:

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate --- An impressive discovery for me, Fiftyrow’s 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of fruit from Rutherford’s Morisoli Vineyard and Lewelling Vineyards (one of my favorite under-the-radar Cabernet estates). This pure Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a dense ruby/purple hue in addition to notes of white chocolate, black currants, earth and a Pauillac-like cedarwood note. This is a fullbodied, exuberant effort with good texture, lots of purity, depth and richness as well as terrific overall balance. It should age well for 10-15 or more years. Total production is 440 cases, so it has some availability.
