I am not the one who should review the Wine Spectator's choice for the #3 wine of 2009. I could not resist observing, however, that this is one huge hunk of vino. It has savory flavors and an intensity that are truly awe-inspiring. This is serious wine. It almost tastes like a major Burgundian beef dinner. I will be watching as it evolves and hope to have the vocabulary to describe it as it does.

Tested on a well-aired bottle, about 70 deg F. Alluring nose of spice, dark fruit, floral, and earth, in excellent balance and expression. Lively acid on the attack, dark fruit (plums or prunes?, blackberry, other) somewhat in the background with meaty and spicy notes. Finishes of same elements with extra wood. Dryish. Body medium, acid medium, tannin medium.

This was one of the worst bottles of wine I ever had. Over oaked, unbalanced...covered red fruit flavors.

The smell is of tobacco or cigar box taste of black cherry. It is very light in the mouth but the taste lingers in a very good way

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.

Surprisingly complex for an inexpensive wine.

This is an impressively rich, intense, espresso-style of Cabernet at a very appealing price. While quite reliant on jazzy oak and its mocha-laced appearance, there are lots of complex and concentrated blackberry and currant flavors, finishing with plush tannins. Drink now through 2010.

A smooth, sleek, richly flavored wine, with intense black cherry and blackberry fruit that's shaded by earthy, cedary overtones. Finish is long, gushing and fruity. Drink now through 2009.

Toasty, rich nose of spicy oak, black cherries and plum. Quite deep and concentrated. Chocolate, cedar, and spice in the background. The ripe, velvety flavors of black cherries and currants are accentuated by rich, creamy oak.

Editors' Choice! A terrific wine that proves you don't have to spend a fortune for a top-flight Napa Valley Cabernet. It's a deeply flavored, brooding young wine, filled with exciting blackberry, cassis and mineral flavors. Big in tannins, yet with a... Wine Enthusiast. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2007 Franciscan Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

An exotic, spicy array of aromas leads to a velvety texture and ripe cherry, cedar and herb flavors. Tempting to drink now, but it could be cellared until 1993 or so.

83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 3% Syrah. 1% Petit VerdotThe fruit-laden 2007 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon offers a luscious bouquet of dark fruit including blackcurrant, black cherry, and blackberry layered over aromas of sweet vanilla and baking spices. Approachable cherry and cocoa notes lead to a wine of intense concentration, with flavors of dried plums and cola laced with hints of tobacco. Generous weight and mouth-filling velvet tannins frame a finish that lingers with flavors of dark cherry and cassis.

This Merlot-dominated blend is very soft and lush, with upfront chocolate fudge and black cherry flavors. Itrsquo;s an almost sweet wine, although itrsquo;s basically dry and has good acids.

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.
