2007 hope & grace Cabernet Sauvignon, St. Helena
The 2007 Vintage has had wine devotees at the height of their anticipation, and the speculation of this vintage is compared to extraordinary vintages, such as 1994, 1999 & 2001. We definitely have to concur; our 2007 hope & grace Cabernet Sauvignons are superbly elegant, full –bodied and balanced with complexity on top, this is the complete collector’s vintage.
The ripeness and complexity of a fine Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is expressed in this deeply colored and graceful wine. This vintage is composed entirely of Cabernet Sauvignon from the renowned Lewelling Family Vineyards, which is fortuitously situated at the base of Spring Mountain. This wine exemplifies the exceptional fruit, structure and balance that we have come to anticipate from the St. Helena appellation.
Winemaker Notes: This cabernet has intense aromas of black cherry fruit, cola, tobacco leaf, and tea, finishing with a hint of café ole. Smooth rich flavors of Bing cherry & anise glide across the palate … leaving a rich, lingering mouth feel.
