Thomas Rivers Brown was the 2010 Food and Wine Magazine Winemaker of the Year. Notes on the 2007 Cabernet from the producer: "This wine has always been highly aromatic. Starting out with a nose of violets, wet rock, and cassis, the entry takes on a richness that betrays its two hillside sources. There is brightness to the black-fruited quality that pushes the perception of the fruit to the red/blue end of the spectrum until the tannin hits. As with all hillside sites, the tannin is there it's just a matter of managing the quality of it that sets the wine apart. The structure here takes on a fine-grained sweetness and if it deviates from a fruit focus it moves more toward the varietally correct notes of creosote, charcoal, and graphite with loamy, minerally tones creeping in. Time in the decanter definitely helps to prolong the finish and mellow out some of the mountain tannin."
