This wine has changed for the better in the last two years. If you haven’t opened a bottle of the 07 in a while... open it!

07' Fortunate son. It's been over a year since I've enjoyed a bottle. A one hour decant is enough. This wine is in a great spot right now. I don't see it getting much better. Beautiful bright red fruits, worn leather. The tannins have subsided & the acidity is still holding up quite nicely. Big elegant fruit bomb. Such a crowd pleaser of a wine. I do believe this wine has many great years in front of it. Why wait?

07' It was so much better than it was just a year ago. Soft leather, tobacco, dark cherries. One hour + in the decanter it was drinking fantastic.

07' Fortunate son. Drinking so much better than it was the last time I tried it. These corky 2007's are quite fluid as the years go by. A wine that has at least another 10+ years in it.

Big with structure. Needed a few more years to be fully integrated.

This is a big, fruit driven Napa Cab - very full and saturated flavor - deep dark fruit flavored, good structure and a huge finish. Classic Jayson Woodbridge style - delicious!
