Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Reserve 2007
91 Points - $95 - 230 cases made
Intense and full-bodied, with loamy earth, dried berry, sage and roasted herb flavors, this is marked by firm, mouthcoating tannins that cloak the cherry and berry flavors. A rich, extracted style. Best from 2012 through 2022. - J.L.
