Sbragia 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Wall Vineyard

At 1800 feet elevation, the picturesque Wall Vineyard on Mt. Veeder is an ideal spot for growing classic mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. The site was planted by famed winegrower Duane Wall and its deeply concentrated grapes continuously lead to statuesque wines with immense aging potential. This excellent 2007 'Wall Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon includes 11% Cabernet Franc (also from Wall Vineyard) and it marks the fourth vintage of this wine for Sbragia Family Vineyards. Its generous aromas and velvety-smooth flavors of ripe black cherries, plums, cola berry, and cocoa powder balance perfectly with the sweet toasty notes of classy French oak. Sbragia's 2007 'Wall Vineyard' Cabernet Sauvignon garnered an outstanding 96 Points from Robert Parker. "The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Wall Vineyard is potentially the best of all these Cabernets...a superbly concentrated, full, layered wine with tremendous purity and depth." This beautiful wine was also awarded 96 Points by the Tasting Panel, "Rich and explosive...with great intensity and lovely balance; stunning," and 93 Points by Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, "The largest-scaled and most powerful of this set of Cabernets, but with the stuffing to support its substantial ripe tannins." Sbragia's 2007 'Wall Vineyard' Cabernet Sauvignon is one of those rare, legendary achievements, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do. [+]
