First pass: Inviting straight from the glass. Pure fruit, a bit stressed. Short mid-palate. Good texture on the finish. Chewy. Second pass: Opening in the mid-palate and balancing out.

Barrel sample at NYC open house 4/14/2008- The color is super garnet. The palate explodes with red fruits of plum, cherries and tar. There is some nice cassis notes present. This is a very elegant & classy wine. A real show-stopper. Pure fruited and extremely clean. Very different from the '04 and the '05. This will set a new high for this rock star wine...

(double decanted 1.5 hours) The family resemblance is uncanny, just the clothing is different. This had the dark brooding color with the slightly more subdued, but ever present wall of fruit. The red and black fruits created such a fruit medley of love. Slightly bigger in scale than the 04, this had more oak, and more tannic structure, but hey, it’s a year younger. Black cassis wrapped chocolate cherries with pure blackberry and licorice. The balance and purity is staggering. Long and intense, this wine kept vying for pole position with its older brother, taking the lead no less than 3 times. The photo-finish results proved it was nose behind, yet I will give it a 95/100

Super dark color. Deep pure cassis and blackberry nose. The palate has the blackberry and the deep pure currant, anise and cocoa.. Slghtly angular tannins. Balance, structure and breed. This is a powerhouse that will be sure to please for the next 15 years. The promise is there...the patience will be rewarded.

(double decanted 4.5 hours) Dark and intense. The nose showed a wall of fruit that raged from the glass. Wow. There was black berry, black cherry, dark currant, black plums, some tobacco, some sweet kirsch, Wow. The purity of this multi-fruited profiled wine is both mind blowing and mind-boggling. Elegant and precise, this is a Cab drinkers Cab. I sat with this all night and it kept changing places with its younger brother always fighting for first place. A long finish and wow. Anyone who thinks wow wines do not exist needs to taste this one treated with the correct decant and respect. One more time….. Wow

Vintage: 2007 10/20/2011

The prodigious 2007 Materium exhibits an even more opaque purple color, and ratchets up the level of intensity and aromatic complexity. Blackberry, black raspberry, blueberry, and cassis aromas intermixed with notes of crushed rocks, spring flowers, and toasty new oak are found in this beauty. Outstanding intensity along with full-bodied power and beautifully integrated acids, tannins, alcohol, and wood suggest this 2007 should hit its peak in 5-7 years, and evolve for three decades or more.

Winemaker's Notes:

I've officially run out of anything original to say about this bottling. What I can say… and what rings true every year is that we love everything about this site. There's something very unique about it and when you drink a bottle (or two) of wine a night, that is a really captivating trait. It has all the power one looks for in Napa Cabernet, however its always high natural acidity provides such explosive aromatics and palate-precision that it comes across as light on its feet. There's a nice spiciness to it that's hard to place, but it contrasts nicely with the crushed rock and dense black-fruited center that dominates the palate.
