2007 is one of the best vintages of Napa. This wine is clearly has some potential. However, it is not time yet to drink it. This is one of the wines that you would lay down for 4 to 7 years from now. It is still very tight and is not offering its atmosphere yet. It has a nice good color. On the nose, black fruits are dominating. Blueberry, blackberry, cassis, and dark chocolate. Also there is a little hint of licorice. On the palate, very dry, big, bold, very tannic, a bit bitter finish, a lot of dark chocolate going on, balanced. It is still tight and has not a lot of things to offer right now! This is no way a 94 bottle of wine. Yes, this wine will evolve in the next 4 to 7 years, but I just cannot see how this wine has been give such a very high score! I am 88 on this effort.

The park steakhouse. Sweet in the beginning and a smooth finish.

You definitely have to let this wine open p a bit. My first initial smell was sweaty socks and really didn't enjoy the wine that much. After I opened up I liked it better but can't see throwing up a 94 ws rating.

This Bordeaux-style red blend is one of the most reliable of its genre. Grilled steak brushed with garlic and extra virgin olive oil or roast lamb would complement it well.

Well-charred oak dominates now, with its toasty vanillins, but underneath lurks a very pretty wine. The blackcurrant and cherry flavors are sweetly delicious, and the tannins are soft and lush. This appealing wine is easy to fall in love with. Give it a few years to knit together.

Plenty of cream, mocha and vanilla-scented oak up front in this smooth wine, with mocha, currant and spicy coffee scents. Impressive for its elegance and silky mouthfeel. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2008.

Firm, intense and vibrant, with spicy currant, mocha, red cherry flavors, turning elegant with well-integrated tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2007.

Full dense ruby color; a wide array of aromas including black cherry, plum, vanilla, cedar and pine. Full-bodied entry, generous layering of flavors; citrus balances jam, pepper modu- lates chocolate, earth rescues prunes. Tannins for long-term enjoyment, but a hedonistic pleasure now.

Impressively fresh in its black cherry and blueberry flavors, this is texturally generous rather than jammy. And in the tradition of Estancia meritage, it over-delivers for the price. The plump fruit completely fills the dusty tannins of Paso Robles, which keep this unpretentious, and delicious with grilled tri-tip.

Plenty of ripe, up-front currant, cedar, herb, sage and dill flavors. Turns tannic, but itrsquo;s better balanced than many 1998s. Drink now through 2005.

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2007 Primus is a glasscoating opaque purple with aromas of tar licorice pepper blackcurrant and blueberry Youthful structured and balanced it will evolve for 57 years and offer prime drinking from 2015 to 2025

Tasting Notes:

Appearance: Deep garnet Aroma: Inviting aromas of dark cherry, sage, and red plums. Complex layers of ripe berries, with undertones of vanilla and cloves. Flavors: Full‐bodied and textural, with ripe flavors of black plum and cherry, cocoa and cassis.  A concentrated, rich palate with round tannins leads to a long finish interwoven with blackberry, anise and mocha.
