(1996 Vintage) Medium dark red in color, the 1996 Seven Oaks has aromas of black cherry, blackberry, cassis and orange rind. The bouquet is complex with cedar, vanilla, leather, clove, allspice and chocolate as well as toasty oak. Showing ripe and moderate tannins supported by good acidity, the upfront fruit flavors of cherry, vanilla, blackberry jam and smoky toasted oak will develop additional complexity with bottle aging.
Wine & Spirits(2009 Vintage) Here's a fine everyday Cabernet for drinking now with your favorite meat dish or cheese. It's soft and rich in berry, currant and spice flavors. Could be a little drier, but it sure is tasty.
