Winemaker's Notes

(From 2007 Vintage) Our Cabernet Sauvignons from 2007 are remarkably fruit-forward and generous in their youth, yet remain true to the house style, with refinement, elegance and long cellaring potential. The 2007 CASK 23 offers continuously unfolding aromas of violets, cassis, whole and crushed blackberries, oak spice, dark cocoa, cedar and subtle cigar box. It's intense, yet still vibrant and fresh, with concentrated flavors which build through the finish and linger after each sip. Silky texture and refined tannins complete the portrait. Serve CASK 23 with braised beef cheeks or crown roast of lamb.

    Not unlike the previous wine in structure, but much more classic in its delivery of ripe cherry fruit tinged with notes of cola, caramel and an elusive hint of dried flowers that is the patina of successful bottle aging, this one is maturing now and will peak in the next few years. It gets it points for current drinkability.
