Neyers Cabernet Sauvignon Ame Napa Valley 2007
The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Ame comes from the estate's finest block of Cabernet Sauvignon. It sees more new oak during the aging process than the Neyers Ranch cuvee. Made in limited quantities, it possesses a dense ruby/purple color along with a distinctive perfume of blackberries, cassis, smoke, camphor, and earth. Deep and full-bodied, with plenty of sweet, well-integrated tannin, it will benefit from 3-4 years of bottle age, and should last for two decades thereafter.
Editorial Reviews for Neyers Cabernet Sauvignon Ame Napa Valley
tight nose with black currant jam, oak spice, and soil tones, a touch of dried herb lurking, this is big with lots of dry extract, super fine tannins, good acidity, dense and chewy with dark, mysterious flavors, lots of spicy herbals tones to the currant fruit, a bit waxy and balsamic, mouth filling with a fine core of sweet dark fruit chilling in there somewhere. Dark coffee tones and mocha lead to the chewy rather massive finish. This needs plenty of time but has the stuffing to be a winner 92pts

This is a bottling of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the vineyard at the highest elevation on our Conn Valley property. Planted by Dave Abreu in 1996 on a steep, south - facing slope at the north end of our ranch, this parcel has given us remarkable Cabernet Sauvignon fruit, both complex and dramatic.
