  • Red and black fruit in front, moving wonderfully into earthiness, loam, herbs, spices, just the right amount of tannin... absolutely wonderful, a treat

  • Decanted for 2 hours. Nice balance to this wine. Fruit forward with firm tannin still on the finish. Drinking well now if you have it with food. Otherwise let it rest for a couple more years.

  • Still a bit young, at first tannins overpowered fruit, but over 60 mins really blossomed. I'd give this 2+ more yrs! but killer stuff

  • Much more straight and narrow than the Ridge StCruz served before. Very fresh and lively. Not heavy at all, rather elegant to be a US Cab. Probably a bit closed.

  • A wonderful wine! The 2007 Forman Cabernet Sauvignon is sheer power combined with elegance and structure. The palate offers up an abundance of lovely fruit adjoined by chalk, subtle led pencil and nicely integrated oak. The palate is full bodied and perfectly balanced. Acidity, oak, tannins and fruit are all combined into a harmonious whole. There is a beautiful texture to be found, but the overall impression is that of a wine which is fully open and drinks perfectly. However, you will have to wait a few more years to see signs of aging - the 2007 Forman is still to be considered as young. Further to this, it seems as though Ric Forman has said a cordial good bye to Mr Brett. Compared to a 2001 Forman tasted a while ago, this effort is perfectly clean with very few signs of brett. The gauze bandage is gone!
