Wanted to like it, '07 after all, but fruit has dropped.

2007 blind tasting. Group 8th place, my 7th place. Butterscotch, smooth, oak, bright fruits. In a group of Boudreaux this stuck out as sweet.

Beautiful cab - soft tannins, deep blue fruit and long finish. Excellent.

Flowers, mineral, black fruit, chocolate and a hint of spice. Some nice components, but the wine never comes together. Overly acidic and not well made. After laying it down for 8 years, it turned out to be quite disappointing.

A great vintage but an apparently backward wine when released. Its freshness and tension are singing now. Vibrant black cherry is contrasted by dried currants, dust, worn leather and wet pencil shavings.

Great deep flavors. Fills the mouth with cassis, dark fruit and a bold long finish
