Mirror Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2007

Member Review by RMwine:

Wine Advocate # 192 Dec 2010 Robert Parker 91 Drink: 2010 - 2025 $75 (75) A blend of St. Helena and Oakville fruit aged 20 months in 50% new French oak casks, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon displays sweet black cherry and black currant fruit intermixed with hints of herbs, underbrush and vanilla. Its opulence, full-bodied richness, endearing, layered texture and impressive purity as well as finish suggest this showy 2007 should keep for 10-15+ years. Tel. (707) 968-5052; Fax (707) 968-5154

During my four years with the Forty-niners and Raiders, my wife Stephanie and I had the opportunity to spend significant time in Wine Country, where we developed a passion for wine. The explosive richness of a well made Napa Cabernet drew us in. When I decided I wanted to pursue my passion in the wine industry, mutual friend Jeff Smith of Hourglass introduced me to Rob Lawson, an amazing winemaker. In the early days of “cult” winemaking in Napa Valley, Rob was instrumental in the crafting of many of the valley’s big name cabernets. We found we shared a common philosophy: a humble approach to making the best wines possible and a desire to over-deliver at every stage. I had found the perfect project! We source much of our fruit from two famed St. Helena vineyards that mirror each other across the valley. Between those mirrored vineyards, and the fact that I’m often referred to as Rick ‘Mirror’, the parallel was too good to pass up and the name stuck. The Mirror Wine Company was born. Read less

Very rich and big. Blackberry, black cherry, rose petal and spice with a slight dark chocolate nuance. Nice, round and smooth. - Tasted at Napa Wine Company 4/20/10

Dark and mysterious without a hint of oak. Not too much alcohol heat either. I am actually reminded of a Rolo candy bar. (I recently had a limited edition Rolo Mcflurry at Mcdonald's and this had the same elements (although subtle) of milk chocolate and chewy caramel. I paired this with bourbon glazed petite filet and the battling sweetness between the wine and meat balanced out to perfection. This would go great with a BBQ like ribs or wings. Excellent!

Exceptional Napa Cab. Dark fruits with a hint of caramel. Best value I have found in a long time. This wine will not be $75 for long. Bought it direct at mirrorwine.com
