Thats not a wine stain on the label, its a design
This old ghost winery, which has been resurrected, has produced their best wine to date. Dark ruby/purple, with a nose of graphite, black currants, violets, and some chocolate, the medium to full-bodied texture of the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon builds incrementally. The fruit is pure, rich, and concentrated, the finish long and authoritative. The wine, which is very approachable now, should drink well for at least 10-15+ years.
Despite a rustic edge, the earthy dried currant and blackberry flavors at the core are tight, concentrated, focused and authentic, with hints of blueberry and mineral showing on the finish. The tannins clamp down tight at the end. Decant for now. Best from 2011 through 2021. 2,900 cases made. –JL
