2007 Napa Valley (Rutherford/Oakville) Cabernet
Lot 136 2007 Napa Valley (Rutherford/Oakville) Cabernet Sauvignon
Black wine with a deep purple rim. Delicate French oak accompanied by blackberries and cassis illustrates the balance and sophistication expected of Central Napa. This blend of Rutherford and Oakville Cabernet personifies the classic Rutherford "dust" backed by a lush fruit, a hint of bright mint, and a resilient full body. A seductive fleshiness is steadied by an ideal tannic structure, firm and well integrated. Just starting to disrobe, this wine drinks beautifully now and will only improve with age. Decant an hour before serving.
Style: Full, Bold
