Trefethen Vineyards Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
92 points Josh Raynolds (International Wine Cellar): Pungent aromas of red and dark berries, Asian spices and musky herbs. Broad, fleshy dark berry flavors gain freshness with air and pick up notes of allspice and candied rose. Manages to be both rich and lively, finishing with excellent energy and lingering spiciness. This really hangs onto the palate. (May/Jun 2009)
RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
Editorial Reviews for Trefethen Vineyards Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
Aged in third passage barrique This has a wonderful purity to the sweet, slightly candied notes of barely ripe crushed raspberries with hints of medicinal roots, flowers and bay leaves adding contrast. In the mouth this exhibits a light to medium bodied feel and is very fruit driven with a core of black currant and raspberry fruit that exhibits excellent cut and focus. There are hints of underbrush and herbs on the palate that show up on the big, pure finish with fruit that’s just a touch chunky and an almost spicy note of green anise seeds on the finale. A lovely wine, full and fresh. 90pts
My rating: 88 Wine has well balnced nose, fruity, plenty of oak. Body is dry with good fruit and soft tannins
Since 1994 I have been drinking the Cinq Cepages and found this to be my all time favorite blend. Plenty of body, great nose and extremely tasty. I haven't opened my 07 yet but it's sure to be as good as all of the others.
External Reviews for Trefethen Vineyards Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
The winersquo;s cherry aromas are almost stewy, thanks to the toast and eucalyptus notes that envelop them; expect more cherry, soy and some herbal complexity in the mouth. Medium-weight; closes with tart red fruit and full-on tannin.
Gorgeous Cabernet, offering a mix of ripe, rich, fleshy currant and blackberry fruit, with hints of herb, olive and sage. Finishes with a firm, structured backbone and ripe tannins giving it depth and richness. Drink now through 2014.

Power and grace is summed up in the 2007 I Sodi di San Niccolo - Mostly Sangioveto (Clone of Sangiovese) with Malvasia Nera. Inky and saturated black and blue hue indicates a full bodied Super Tuscan. Power and grace is summed up in the 2007 I Sodi di San Niccolo...Traditional notes of garrigue morello cherry and black truffle create a heady bouquet. Quite mouth-coating...with plenty of glycerol fruit and wood tannins throughout. After a few years of bottle age this is displaying a dried fruit spectrum of black cherry and black plum with hints of licorice and olive. Another layer of roasted coffee and caramel picks up on the back end with fine grained tannins reminiscent of a gently-aged left bank Bordeaux. The finish is full and expansive going on for minutes. A baby but with the structure to age another 4 to 7 years. I highly suggest decanting for 90 minutes if consuming for the immediateThis wine only gets better with ample aeration. Neil Mechanic.
Leuchtendes Rubinrot. Fruchtig-würziges Bouquet: Waldbeeren, Cassis und schwarze Kirschen, feiner Veilchenduft und leichte Pfeffernote dahinter. Saftiger Gaumen mit sanfter Textur, wieder viel blaue und schwarze Frucht, dezente Arabicanote, ein betörender Schmeichler bis ins füllig nachklingende Finale.
Dense and concentrated, with rich, earthy currant and blackberry fruit that's a little muddled and lacking a sharp focus. Still, it speaks clearly of Cabernet with its concentration and depth. New California appellation Cabernet from St. Jean. Drink now through 2008.

This highly-anticipated 2007 vintage is finally out! And what a gem it is! This classic Bordeaux blend shows amazing power and finesse at such a youthful stage. It’s a magnificent Cabernet with loads of black fruit and hints of dried herbs, olive and sage aromas. On the palate, inviting flavors of currant, ripe black plums, blackberry and roasted oak aromas awakens your senses. Supple and ripe tannins surround a firm structure and lead to a deeply extracted and lengthy finish.
