These proprietary reds are dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, and the 2007 is the finest wine yet produced at Futo. A blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, a whopping 33% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Petit Verdot, it boasts a dense purple color as well as a gorgeously sweet bouquet of blue and black fruits, spring flowers, and crushed rocks, full-bodied power allied to compelling elegance, and a layered, multidimensional personality. There is plenty of depth in this beauty, and it is no doubt capable of putting on lots of weight and complexity given the Cabernet Franc component. (RP)
Very good saturated ruby-red. Superripe aromas of blueberry, currant, licorice and black tea, along with intriguing soil tones. For all its powerfully sweet blackberry, blueberry and spice flavors, this pungent wine shows excellent mineral and floral lift as it opens in the glass. Finishes with substantial tongue-clenching but sweet tannins and a late note of torrefaction. (ST)
Rich and well-proportioned, with a deep core of blackberry, sage, cedary oak and black licorice flavors. Though this is tannic, the fruit makes a strong push on the finish, ending with complexity and a gravelly aftertaste. Shows lots of room to grow. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. -- Blind 2007 California Cabernet retrospective (JL)
