A very distinct note of pencil eraser on the nose threw me off. But well-rounded with many varietals: 40% cab, 20% merlot, 20% cab franc, and some others i can't remember. Just the right amount of oak with the initial bite but mellows out for a softer finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

2007 was a warm, dry vintage in Washington. Plenty of summer heat produced grapes with wonderful intensity, deep, dark color and great balance. The 2007 Horse Heaven Hills Claret (red wine) is a blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 14% Petit Verdot, and 6% Malbec. The fruit was sourced from our estate vines at Gunselman Bench, Andrews Horse Heaven Ranch, McKinley Springs and Phinny Hill vineyards. It was aged in 70% French oak and 30% American oak for 21 months, 50% of the oak was new. The ideal consumption is 2 to 5 years from release date, but this wine will develop for another 5-7 years.
