The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Solari Reserve is a 1,000-case blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot. While it reveals less up-front accessibility than the LMV Salon, it is a textbook Napa Cabernet exhibiting notes of high-class unsmoked cigar tobacco, blackberries, black currants, licorice, and graphite. With superb purity, elegance, density, and precision, as well as full-bodied power, this beauty can be enjoyed over the next 25 years. (RP) 96+
Bright medium ruby. Pungent scents of blackberry, cassis, minerals and bitter chocolate. A fruit bomb on the palate, showing a lovely restrained sweetness and a plush texture to its cassis, blackberry and licorice flavors. This wine comes across as sweeter than the basic Cabernet Sauvignon bottling, not to mention more pliant today. The purple fruit flavors are complemented by a note of bitter chocolate on the long, suavely tannic finish. Very sexy juice. (ST)
Saturated medium ruby. Currant, violet, licorice and bitter chocolate on the nose and palate. Lush, sweet and spicy, with excellent breadth; this really spreads out to coat the palate. Compared to the LMV Salon, this shows more mineral and menthol notes on the back end, and yet the tannins are more suave. (ST) 92+
