"The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is among the finest “regular”
Cabernet Sauvignons I have tasted from Cakebread. It exhibits
a dense ruby/purple color, stunning purity, subtle notes of smoke,
black currants, blackberries, spring flowers and toast, good acidity
and ripe tannin. This full-bodied yet graceful, deep, silky Cabernet
Sauvignon is already irresistible, but it will provide provocative
and complex drinking for 15-20 years."
Robert Parker has given our 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon,
Napa Valley 92 points.
