Cakebread Cellars 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon - 90-92pts

Cakebread Cellars 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley) - California

Availability: BCLDB Signature Stores
Cost: $100
Alcohol: 14.4%
Date Tasted: August 26th, 2012

Tasting Notes: At five years of age this Cabernet is still quite youthful in appearance, a dark ruby hue, and in its development. Concentrated, sweet cassis and blackberry pie fruit aromas blend nicely with French vanilla, mocha, licorice and toasted oak notes on the intense nose. The concentration and youthful flavour profile continues on the dry palate with added spice and an iron backbone. Tannins are fine but moderate with bright acidity that leans the overall balance a bit towards tart. Best served by waiting another 1-2 years before opening to make the most of your investment. Drink 2014-2020+.
