"The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley was blended from 11 vineyards and is composed of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, with the balance Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot aged for 15 months in French and American oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it displays aromas of cedar, baking spices, herbs, incense, black currant, and blackberry. Layered on the palate, dense, and already exhibiting some complexity, this lengthy effort will reward 3-4 years of cellaring and offer a drinking window extending from 2013 to 2022."
