  • 2007 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection

    After reading some of the recent reviews I was worried this would be closed down, and upon opening it was. Left in a cabernet decanter for 6 hours and served behind a 1991 Chateau Montelena with a dinner of steak, and lamb for 8 guests. Undisputed WOTN, with dark fruit, rich, full bodied, and a nice finish. Later in the evening when we moved on to Scotch and Cigars our guests were still talking about the Caymus... Impressive!

  • 2007 DeLille Cellars Harrison Hill

    Drink to celebrate the birthday of Chris Upchurch... With a 3+ hour decant was alcohol and dark cherry on the nose. Classic Harrison Hill and long long finish! Had some nice subtleties on the mid-palate, but the finish was what we are talking about afterwards. We really enjoyed this wine, but would not open another one for at least five years! Thanks Chris, and happy birthday!

  • 2007 Signorello Estate Cabernet Sauvignon

    Big surprise, tasted behind 01 Quilceda Creek Cab, and 02 Caymus Special Selection. This bottle stood up surprisingly well behind those two, completely exceeding all of our expectations. Removed from the cellar, 30 minute decant plus a further 15 minutes in the glass talking about it amongst the guests. The nose was beautiful mocha, pepper, dark fruit, and vanilla, the taste seemed to back up the nose quite well and was a little cooler on alcohol then the previous two we had tasted. The finish was average. We all agreed this was the value leader of the evening, although most preferred the Caymus, although by a slim margain. Great vintage, and amazing Value at $38!
