Vintage: 2007 10/24/2011

The least expensive effort is the opaque purple-colored 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa. A blockbuster, it offers up classic notes of charcoal, subtle smoke, black currants, black berries, lead pencil shavings, and earth. This deep, opulent, full-bodied Cabernet possesses terrific purity as well as length. It should drink well for 15+ years. Notable for its richness, intensity, focus and persistence, this full-bodied red shows spicy currant, black cherry and wild berry fruit thats supple and layered, yet light on its feet, with gentle tannins. Drink now through 2016. 5,653 cases made. -JL ** Only 12 in Stock **

The superb 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa is more California-styled with lavish toasty new oak intermixed with jammy black cherries, black currants, licorice, and tobacco notes. A dense, opulent, cassis-flavored effort with loads of fruit and glycerin, this seductive Cabernet will drink well for 10ndash;15 years.

Dark purple. Smoky blackcurrant and candied plum on the nose, with dusty minerals adding focus. Juicy and concentrated, with powerful dark fruit flavors, velvety texture and building spiciness. Offers impressive vivacity for a wine with such depth, finishing brisk and clean.

Smooth, dark, rich and seductive; a remarkably complex and concentrated wine brimming with ripe, silky currant, blackberry, black cherry and fresh earth and pencil lead nuances. It firms up nicely on the finish, exhibiting ripe, flavorful tannins and a long, persistent finish that reveals extra depth facets. Drink now through 2012.

Young, closed, dense, but fine. Flavors suggest rum-soaked raisins, cassis, sweet oak and gingerbread. Long, rich, fat, extracted, borders on super-maturity but not quite, maintaining balance and even elegance. finishes long and fruity. Hold beyond 2008.

Deep red. Powerful dark berry aromas are complicated by cured tobacco, licorice, cedar and incense. Very sweet but poised, with expressive red and dark berry flavors supported by gentle acidity and framed by silky tannins. Gains weight with air, finishing lush and chewy, with outstanding length. As I went back to this it seemed to grow fresher.
