The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve carries the full classic aromas of crème de cassis, licorice, and cedarwood with layers of spice, camphor and roasted herbs. On the palate, the wine reflects the very expressive terroir of the To Kalon Vineyard with ripe blue and black fruits—mineral-laced dark berries and powerful, integrated tannins for which this vineyard is known. The lush aromatics and well developed flavors are wrapped in firm, velvety tannins, giving the wine an exceedingly long, aristocratic finish.
Wine & SpiritsSimply one of the best wines in the world. On a par with the first growths of Bordeaux; capable of long term cellaring but also enjoyable now, bursting with dark berry fruit. Although packed with blackberry, cassis and spice, this wine has a beautifully pure mineral component that lifts the wine on your palate, making it seem simultaneously chewy and silky at the same time. 38% of this vintage is made with grapes from the one of the jewels of Napa mdash; the To Kalon Vineyard.
