2007 Cabernet Sauvignon
"This fruit-forward Cabernet Sauvignon shows off LMR's terroir. The nose offers concentrated dark red fruits, black tea smokiness, sweet cedar bark, and black pepper. The full, pleasing entry introduces plush, soft tannins that persist to the finish. Seamless and sweetly extracted, this wine reveals layers of flavors in the progression on the palate. Its youthful style allows it to open beautifully, whether in your glass or over time in your cellar." - Ashley Heisey
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.
Food Pairing Notes
