2007 V Madrone Cabernet Sauvignon 1.5L
This wine is what Napa Valley Cabernet is all about and great evidence of the site from which it emanates. Black cherry, raspberry and Satsuma plum, chocolate, leaf tobacco, and black tea are some of the descriptors for aromas and flavors encountered upon aeration or decanting. The 2007 has an incredible entry, firm, full mid-palate and a dense and lingering finish. It is ageworthy, yet able to be enjoyed immediately.
