The blockbuster 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Speciale has an inky purple color and notes of graphite, charcoal, blackberry fruit, cassis, and a touch of spice box. It is full-bodied, opulent, and a killer example of Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon. It should drink well for at least another 20 years. 95+ Points
Great nose here, with black currants, licorice, and minerals. Full bodied, with super silky tannins and long finish of subtle fruit and light vanilla. Very well crafted. Pull the cork after 2013. 475 cases.
Inky ruby. Sexy aromas of cherry-cola, cassis, cocoa powder and vanilla Round, dense and palate-staining, with a firm backbone to the sweet, chewy flavors of dark berry preserves, bitter cherry, menthol and minerals. The deep, spicy dark fruit qualities carry through the very long, assertive finish, which features suave, integrated tannins and a hint of candied flowers. This unfined and unfiltered wine spent 30 months in barrels, most of them French.
*** Cellar Selection *** Dark as a moonless midnight, dry as dust, with hard-edged tannins, this Cabernet is almost undrinkable now in its extreme youth. It shows a massive core of blackberries, currants, dark baker’s chocolate and smoky oak, and the balance of acidity makes it clean and bright. All indications are of a cellarworthy wine. Drink 2014 and beyond.
