2007 CALI 351 NAPA VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Vinification Notes:

At first impression the 2007 Cabernet shows off ripe dark fruit and classic Napa Cabernet style.  Dark and saturated in color, the wine opens up with ripe currant and blackberry, accentuated with cedar and spice.  The palate is very rich, silky smooth with gentle acids, but also the verve to carry the fruit and give the wine length.  It ends as a very mouth-filling, supple wine with balance.

Tasting Notes:

Dark ruby red with distinctive aromas of brandied cherries, cacao nibs, and cedar and subtle notes of cassis, anise and tobacco. The palate is rich and forward with a lush, broad density across the palate that carries to a firm and spicy finish of dark plums and roasted hazelnuts.
