2007 Cabernet Sauvignon
"The 2007 Long Meadow Ranch Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a still youthful beauty from one of the great Napa Valley vintages with inviting aromas of warm black cherry, blackberry and mint tea on the nose. The palate brings notes of cocoa, chestnuts, and light oak layered among the long soft tannins. Fantastic now with shelf life to spare, this is a delightful wine to savor with friends." - Justin Carr, March 2019
The year began dry with some very cold days and single-digit nighttime temperatures around the New Year holiday, the opposite to the start of the previous year when floods greeted the New Year. The season continued dry, with about 60 percent of normal precipitation. Temperatures were warmer than normal as winter continued into spring resulting in much earlier budding, bloom and set in the vineyards. Soils dried early in spring due to low precipitation. The summer growing season continued on the mild to cool side but with sufficient warmth towards early autumn developing the grapes.
