2007 Cabernet Sauvignon
October 7, 2007
Aged in new and used (50/50) French oak
Food Pairing Notes
Perfect with LMR Grass-fed Highland beef, with lamb, or with roasted game.
An extraordinary Cabernet that stands out even in this great vintage, and among its Rutherford peers. Quite dry and tannic in youth, it shows astringency that strongly suggests the cellar. Underneath are powerhouse flavors of blackberries, black and red cherries, spices, tea and cedar. Really defines balance and elegance in a Napa Cabernet. Decant if you drink it now, but should develop for years to come. - Steve Heimoff, Editor, Wine Enthusiast Magazine
