Dark red. Spicy red berries and herbs on the nose. Fresh redcurrant and cherry flavors are light in body and refreshingly tangy, with no obvious tannins. A bitter chocolate note adds edge to the tightly focused finish. Irsquo;d give this a bit more bottle aging, or decant it.

More Bordelais in style the Pena family adds a small percentage of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot to this Cabernet Sauvignon to round out the aromas, flavors and mouth-feel. Overall it’s a dark, brooding and balanced wine ready to stand up to any hearty dish.

Richly textured, with layers of herbal tea, licorice, eucalyptus and spicebox intermingling with deep black fruit flavors. Incredible complexity for the price! The 15 months spent in French oak add toasty mocha and subtle spice elements, while the small amounts of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot blended with the 85% Cabernet Sauvignon give it just the right amount of lift and roundness. Very food-friendly mdash; try pairing with herb-crusted lamb, hearty vegetarian dishes (especially with zucchini) or beef with goat cheese.

Quite minty, but fleshy and balanced, displaying good dark currant and mulled plum fruit backed by a broad, toast- and loam-filled finish. Drink now. 7,000 cases imported. -JM Dark ruby red, spice box, red fruits, good depth and concentration, medium-long finish.

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon offers violets, spice box, and blackcurrant in its expressive nose. Supple, smooth-textured, and easy-going, this nicely balanced wine will provide pleasure over the next five years.
