Sawyer Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford 2007
Elegant and well balanced, our 2007 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is comprised of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from our Rutherford vineyard. True to the Rutherford appellation, this wine has wonderful dark berry, anise, liquorice and cedar hints on the nose. In the glass are additional currant and rich, black cherry flavors, with balanced, well integrated tannins. Aged in French oak barrels for 24 months, this wine has additional notes of cedar and tobacco on the long, silky smooth finish.
In the heart of Napa Valley exists a charming, family-owned winery and estate dating back to the early 1930's. We at Sawyer Cellars are dedicated to making premium Estate wines, and sharing our unforgettable winery with our guests.
Four and a half glasses
A wonderfully robust Cabernet Sauvignon, with tons of spice mingled through a fruit medly of currants, blackberries andcherry. this is a more delicate cab than most people expect and I find it pairs perfectly with Duck roasted with a cranberry/cinnamon glaze. Drink now, or hold a few years to allow a little more blending between the delightful fruits and oaked undertones.

The wine was an inky purple in the glass, with a good bit of ruby toward the edges of the glass. The nose was just lovely, with complex aromas of leather, cedar, anise, dried spice, and just a hint of ripe fruit. The taste was just marvelous, with some dried fruit flavor up front, that quickly gave way to some wonderful earthy spice notes midpalate. The finish was long and spectacularly dry, with well rounded tannins supporting the velvety mouthfeel and complexity on the finish that makes this wine an ideal afternoon sipper.
