Hartwell Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District Divine 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Dark chocolate, beef blood, black cherry, and coffee bean note greet the nose. In the mouth this has a bit of an inky, grainy feel to it showing a lot of extraction. It’s a rich, powerful and dense style of wine that would benefit from a few more years in the cellar to smooth off some of the aggressive edges. The mid-palate is full of bitter chocolate and black cherry fruits that lead to a sweet finish with flashes of blackberry jam and baking spices. 90pts

Bob Hartwell's passion for wine stems from his decades as an avid collector. Bob, a fourth generation Californian, has over thirty years of success in the aerospace and plumbing industries. As a successful manufacturer of quality products, Bob has never been a stranger to striving for quality over quantity at any cost. He has always known that the best quality materials result in the best quality products. Bob's obsession with producing the best didn't stop at the manufacturing plant. Bob knew that fulfilling the dream of owning his own vineyard meant finding the best place to grow the best Cabernet Sauvignon. With the help of a respected wine consultant, he found the property he had been searching for. The unplanted hillside in the Stag's Leap District, now Hartwell Estate, was the birthplace of his dream. Dick Grace shared his Bouche Clone from Grace Family Vineyards, and collaborated with Bob on Hartwell's very first production. In 1990 after 22 months in new French oak barrels, the wine, 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, was released with explosive success. This established the tradition of quality and style that continues to distinguish Hartwell wines. In addition to making great wine, Blanca and Bob Hartwell are dedicated to the tradition of charitable giving. Their ongoing philanthropic efforts are instrumental to organizations that improve the lives of children. Read less

Incredibly dense nose. Chocolate, cocoa and plums. Balanced, nice acidity. Great cedar finish.
