A very good wine, but I had higher hopes for this 2007 vintage.

A very nice Cabernet that comes up on the finish after an hour. Surprised at the fruit. Very nice

This wine is surprisingly young but spectacular for Napa Cab. Elegant and pure currant flavor with some oak barrel flavor in the background.

03' Lewelling Cabernet. Medium- bodied We decanted it & poured it straight into the glasses. Slightly tight & tannic at first. That quickly blows off. Blackberry, black cherry. A splash of earthiness to it. Silky tannins, light acidity. Smooth & delicious. Down the middle. Crowdpleaser wine that's very enjoyable. Edit- Leaving half of this.

Compared to a 2010 Hayfork Lewelling. The hayfork opened to a little bit of funk, but the soil distinguishment on this wine was quite nice. Within about 15 minutes, this wine developed a nice fruit component. Compared to the 10 Hayfork, this one was a little more brash although the fruit components were very similar. This was a VERY COOL comparison. The Wights, Lewelling Ranch, what a great pedigree. One of my favorite St. Helena regions. Awesome pull by Joe Leatherwood to compare to the 2010 Hayfork with a RATHER similar pedigree.
