    March 18, 2019 - Decanted several hours before drinking. Dark red, nice nose of cassis, red fruits, bit of complexity. Medium body, ripe lush fruit, excellent balance,no apparent alcohol, tannins well integrated, medium finish. Drinking really well. We all preferred it to the 2012. Excellent.

    November 8, 2018 - Still quite dark in color, the 2007 Black Cat gives off aromas of cassis, aromatic herbs along with hints of flowers and bittersweet chocolate. There is medium body, a generous mouthfeel and loads of dark berries, earth, minerals, as well as a trace of vanilla bean. A very long finish, accented by gently gripping tannin and good freshness—especially for a 2007 Napa Cab—caps things off in style. I would say that this is early in its drinking window, and will certainly last for another decade or more. Sadly, this is my last bottle. A Wonderful drink. 94.

    June 23, 2018 - There was no way we were not buying a bottle to show our appreciation for the generosity of our afternoon hostess. This is classic 2007 Napa—black fruited, big, alcoholic, and fun. We decanted the bottle for several hours and enjoyed it for several more. It shows every bit of its 14.5% ABV, but there is still plenty of fruit to make it work. It was a fun foil to the 2008 and 2011 from earlier in the day.

    November 22, 2017 - I have a lot of vintages of the Blackcat. The 2009 has been drinking good so I decided to drink one of my 2007. WOW... what a treat. It was one of those wines where you just sit there saying how good it is. A teriffic bottle.... smooth solid fruit and tannins. Just a winner.

    November 7, 2017 - In a very good spot now, with a lovely, complete offering of perfumes and complexity - more on the nose than the palate - but that's saying a lot, as the palate is impressive, too. The lighter side of full-bodied, the fruits are mostly red, with some soil tones rounding out the flavor and aromas. Very enjoyable as a food wine, this (PnP) kept getting better with each pour (i.e. a 90~ decant would have been best, I think). My best experience with a BC so far - perhaps because it's in a perfect place of maturity; not sure I'd hold too much longer, the trade off might not be worth it. Good balance still, with gently lingering flavors. Easily recommended
