Dark ruby, almost inky in color, with a short brick rim.
Fruity nose of blackberries, black currants, cooked plums, cherry pie, spices, cedar, vanilla, leather, light earth, pencil lead, peppercorn, coffee, mocha and tobacco leaf.
Full bodied, bold and smooth, with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry and very fruity on the palate with blackberries, cooked cherries, cedar, licorice, vanilla, leather, black currants, sweet chocolates, coffee, cola, peppercorn and spices.
Long spicy finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.
This is a gorgeous Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley (To Kalon Vineyard). Showing great complexity with a great mouthfeel.
Rich, extracted and opulent. Fruit-forward and elegant. A delicious wine. Spicy with a teeth staining color.
This 15 year old from the great 2007 vintage is just beautiful now. Has a lot of years in it still, and will continue to age nicely in the 15 years.
Delicious right out of the bottle, and even better after 3 hours of airtime.
Good by itself as a sipping wine. I just loved it.
16% (!) alcohol by volume.

I found out early that my birth year is a poor vintage in all established wine regions. But within the last year I found ot that 87 is considered good in Napa. So I couldn’t resist to pick up this bottle when I found it. I like mature wine. This is more on the old side. But stil impressibly enjoyable. Tertiary aromas dominate. The palate is delicate with hints of plums, cedar and spice. — 2 days ago
