Kobalt Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2007 Kobalt Cabernet Sauvignon (92% Cabernet, 5% Cabernet Franc and3% Malbec) is similar to our 2005. The color of this wine is veryinky and shows hues of black/blue to purple. Plush aromatic notes of plum, anise, fresh blueberries, andmocha. In the mouth the fruit isbright and full of blackberry, currant and the almost Bordeaux like graphitemineral finish makes for a complex wine. Nuances of leather, herbs, and cedar round out the palate. The finish is full, refined, andelegant and the tannins are well integrated with a sweet smokey smoothness anda clean soft touch of acidity. We recommend 5 –8 years of bottle aging.

My first opportunity to try a "wine" came while working in Yosemite National Park in 1974. I was offered a glass of 1970 Beaulieu Vineyards Cabernet.

My first opportunity to try a "wine" came while working in Yosemite National Park in 1974. I was offered a glass of 1970 Beaulieu Vineyards Cabernet. Later that summer I made my first trip to the Napa Valley and, in my immediate love for it, decided that the place would someday be my home. After working at one of the oldest wine shops in San Francisco, I returned to the Napa Valley and took a job working for a small, family owned winery. My duties encompassed everything from pouring wine in the tasting room to topping wine barrels and bottling. Three years later upon an invitation to work a crush in France, I left my job and went to Bordeaux. When harvest was over that year I toured the French wine country, meeting winemakers who, in light of my juice-stained hands, treated me as one on them. With this special recognition, I was able to learn much more about grapes and wine than in three years working in the tasting room and winery. In particular, I learned about the importance of "terroir". Read less

The seamlessly made 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon possesses a dense ruby/purple color as well as melted tannins, full-bodied power, and gorgeous richness as well as length. This harmonious, big Cabernet should prove to be just as good as the 2005, but even... Robert Parker. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2007 Kobalt Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

Tightly wound, firm and complex, offering a mix of cedar, loamy earth, dried currant and blackberry, with touches of black licorice, mineral and sage. Full-bodied, ending with ripe, chewy tannins that reverberate on the finish. Best from 2012 through... Wine Spectator.

Bright medium ruby. Deep, brooding aromas of sweet black raspberry, minerals and game. Suave on entry, then powerful, dry and quite primary in the middle, with the density of the vintage's best examples leavened by sound acidity. But this is barely w... Stephen Tanzer.
