"The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon offers sumptuously sweet black and blue fruits along with notions of licorice, charcoal, and incense in an elegant, full-bodied, beautifully textured style. A terrific mid-palate, sweet tannins, and a long, pure finish suggest this beauty will drink well for 15+ years. (Not yet released) Readers may be familiar with this name as it is a 50-acre vineyard with most of the production sold to Beringer. However, some of the fruit from the lower elevations of Spring Mountain goes into estate-bottled Cabernets (250-300 cases produced). French guru Philippe Melka makes the wines at Marston Family."

"Good deep ruby. Intriguing aromas of black fruits, graphite, flint and smoky oak. Dense and powerful on the palate; not yet complex but comes across as more vibrant than the 2006. There's something distinctly old-style about this wine, 50% of which was fermented in 400-liter barrels."
