2007 Rhys "Alpine Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "With aeration, the firm, structured 2007 Pinot Noir Alpine Vineyard (a 10-acre site planted at a 1,400 foot elevation) offers up notions of sweet and sour cherries, earth, and forest floor. Medium to full-bodied and pure, with good acidity and texture, this impressive Pinot will benefit from several years of aging. One-hundred percent whole clusters were used in its upbringing. (RP)" (2/2010) 92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "**Outstanding** A ripe and distinctly floral nose that reveals light spice notes to the plum and dark berry fruit aromas that precede very rich, round and substantial ...Read More »

2007 Kosta Browne Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

94 points Wine Spectator: "Very complex, intense and spicy, delivering intense, persistent and rich dried berry flavors. (JL, Web-2012)" 91 points Connoisseurs Guide: "*One Star* Ripe and rich, very nicely concentrated, focused on black cherry fruit with touches of dried violets, cinnamon-like spice and quiet hints of dark chocolate, this very delicious wine feels just a bit on the blocky, slightly tough side at present but has the depth and beauty to insure that it gets better and better over time. For near-term use, we would opt to partner it with sturdy or savory meats rather than more delicate choices. ...Read More »

2007 Schramsberg "J. Schram" North Coast Sparkling Wine

96 points Connoisseurs Guide: "This extraordinarily deep, explicitly champenized offering is a study in contrasts when it is compared to Schramberg's 2007 Reserve, for, while both are nearing their tenth anniversaries, this one shows its autolysis in a more refined light and wears its age with more elegance. It is rife with crème brûlée richness but has retained a subtle, but very sure sense of slightly juicy fruit that has not faded with time. It is a complete and compelling package that reveals more and more with each sip, and it ranks among the very best sparkling wines to be made ...Read More »

2007 L'Aventure "Estate" Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another long distance runner is the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, a wine worth following over the next 15-20 years. With classic aromas of graphite, creme de cassis, spring flowers, and earth, this is a big, broodingly backward, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon that is probably too formidably endowed and intense to attack presently, but given 3-4 years of bottle age, this wine should evolve as well as some of the North Coast Cabernet Sauvignons from Napa. Everything is there -- crushed rock, creme de cassis, graphite, full-bodied power, fabulous concentr ...Read More »

2007 Paul Hobbs "Beckstoffer To Kalon" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From the amazing Beckstoffer To-Kalon Vineyard, Hobbs’ 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is a slightly more opulent, broader, savory effort that comes close to the perfect 2002. The 2007 has more noticeable tannin than the 2002 did at the same stage as well as more obvious minerality, but notes of graphite, black currant liqueur, licorice, cedar, and spice box are found in this full-bodied, multidimensional, fabulously concentrated wine. It was aged in 100% new Taransaud French oak barrels. Give it 5-6 years of cellaring, and drink it over the following three deca ...Read More »

2007 Merus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted too late to make it into the December issue, Merus’s 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits an inky/purple color as well as an extraordinary bouquet of blueberry liqueur intermixed with graphite, charcoal, cassis, and spice. The wood seems pushed to the background given the extraordinary concentration of fruit. Full-bodied, powerful, and rich with chocolaty espresso notes intermixed with blackberries and blueberries, this pure, impressively textured, long Cabernet should evolve for two decades.

2007 Cherry Pie "Stanly Ranch" Carneros Pinot Noir

Cherry Pie is another innovative offering from visionary winemaker Jayson Woodbridge, creator of Hundred Acre and Layer Cake Wines. The nose is redolent of dark Bing cherries, hints of black and white pepper on meat roasting in a wood oven, memories of English plum pudding steaming at Christmas, a touch of saddle leather, warm spice and tobacco at a distance. The nose continues to build and unfold with hints of violets and Portobello mushrooms, blackberries, minerals and sweet earth. It envelops the palette, almost to the point of overwhelming, then open... Read More »

2007 Trivium "Les Ivrettes Vineyard" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* A good, dry, fleshy wine. Not showing well now in its youth, because it’s tannic and unintegrated, with flavors flying all over the place. But there’s a solid core of blackberry and black cherry sour candy, a good sign. Give it at least 4–5 years in the cellar, and try again." (4/2011) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This pretty, gracious, elegant, restrained, medium-bodied 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Les Ivrettes Vineyard from proprietors Doug White and Jack Stuart represents a measured approach to winemaking.

Layer after layer of flavor saturates the palate in this opulent, full-throttle Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2007 possesses dazzling textural richness, depth and sheer intensity. Purists may prefer more structured vintages, but for a producer known for such slow maturing wines, the 2007 is a huge pleasure to taste today. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2037. (AG)" (12/2011)

Drink now." (3/2010) Wine Spectator: "Floral, jasmine and wilted rose join medium-bodied plum and black cherry in this delicate effort, ending with a nice spice and earthy touch. Drink now through 2014.

When, as in such stellar harvests as 2007, all the pieces fall into place, even the naysayers who cannot see past alcohol content are bound to be taken with the kind of richness and wonder-fully concentrated fruit that this deep, remarkably well-balanced bottling shows. It will hold and improve for many more years, but whether drunk now or saved for later, i ...Read More »

2007 Justin "Justification" Paso Robles Cabernet Franc-Merlot

An unusual blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot, it shows a wonderful texture, courtesy of softly ripe tannins and just-in-time acidity. The flavors are all cherries: pie filling, red currants, and ripely fresh fruit off the tree on a hot summer day. Delicious and compelling." (03/10) This wine may be called Justification, but you'll need little to justify buying it. Reflective of the impressive 2007 vintage, this blend of 65% Cabernet Franc and 35% Merlot is sultry Right Bank-styled... Read More »

The still young, incredible 2007 has all the potential needed to achieve a three-digit rating in a few years. A dense plum/purple color is followed by notes of subtle smoke, barbecue spice, blueberries, red and black currants, flowers, and a smoky meat-like character that I first compared to the aroma of Pekin ...Read More »

Creamy and pliant in the middle palate, with nicely concentrated sweet berry flavors. Not yet especially complex but shows a bit more clarity and concentration than the young-vines version. Finishes with very good definition and lift."

Bid on this bottle of 2007 Harlan Estate Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend (OWC - 100RP, 97JS, 97ST, 96WS) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The prodigious 2007 Harlan Estate reminds me of a hypothetical blend of the 2002 with a touch of the controversial 1997. Dense plum/purple-colored with sweet aromas of barbecue smoke, blueberries, blackberries, cassis, licorice, hot rocks and subtle oak, it is a splendidly opulent, pure wine with a skyscraper-like texture as well as stunningly deep fruit that expands gracefully across the palate. The finish lasts nearly a full minute. Because of its overwhelming richness and sweet tannins, this brilliant wine seems to be approachable now, but I suspect further nuances and complexity will emerge after 4-5 years in the bottle. This wine will still be going strong at age 25-30.

2007 Colgin "IX Estate" Napa Valley Syrah

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There are 475 cases of the 2007 IX Syrah Estate, which offers up flowery, roasted meat, balsamic, tar, and blackberry characteristics in a full-bodied format. The wine reveals sweet tannin, and layers of fruit, including a note of lavender that emerges as the wine sits in the glass. It should drink well for a decade. (RP)" (12/2009) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Firm, rich and layered, offering spicy dried berry, mineral, anise and sage flavors that are full-bodied and stylish. Firms up on the finish, with a subtle spicy edge. (JL)" (3/2010) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good bright ruby. Subdued but complex nose off ...Read More »

Bid on this 2-bottle lot of 2007 Hundred Acre "Precious" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (OWC - 98RP) in original wood. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Similarly soft and silky, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Precious (100 cases) is made from Jayson’s favorite barrels. It exhibits a deep plum/purple color as well as a beautiful perfume of graphite, burning embers, charcoal, sweet kirsch, black currants and hints of licorice and cedar. This complex, sexy, full-bodied, opulent wine should drink well for 15-20 years. (RP)" (12/2010)

2007 Sine Qua Non "To The Rescue" Grenache Vin de Paille (375ml)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 To the Rescue Grenache Vin de Paille appears to be a much improved version of the 2005 Grenache Vin de Paille I tasted last year. It possesses 295 grams of residual sugar per liter as well as remarkable acidity, sweetness, and richness, an inky/purple color, and classic aromas of cassis. In spite of its weight, intensity, and unctuosity, the wine is surprisingly delicate and nuanced on the palate. (RP)" (8/2009) 94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated purple. Primary blueberry and boysenberry aromas are complicated by notes of tobacco, candied flowers and smoky minerals. Remin ...Read More »

2007 Rhys "Horseshoe Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "This is at once less restrained but more refined with a red and black cherry nose that carries very subtle spice and stone notes over to the very serious, intense, focused and concentrated flavors that are supported by big and robust yet sophisticated tannins that, like the Skyline, are completely buffered by the copious dry extract on the strikingly persistent finish. The dense but fine tannins and the impeccable balance will enable this to age for years and it would be a shame to drink the '07 Horseshoe too young. The estate wines of Rhys Vineyards are ...Read More »

2007 Rhys "Alpine Hillside" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Rhys Vineyards produces very ambitious wines from vines planted in specific sites in the Santa Cruz Mountains...it is almost impossible to latch on to a few bottles unless you are on the mailing list. The vineyards are generally tightly spaced (2 by 3 feet for Pinot Noir and 4 by 3 feet for Syrah), and the clonal selections are multiple in order to hopefully achieve more complexity and nuance. This is an impressive, well thought out operation, believing, certainly with Pinot Noir, in whole clusters, no racking, and a minimal, artisinal approach to winema ...Read More »

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer George III Vineyard comes from clone 337, from a Beckstoffer-owned vineyard in Rutherford. Its dense purple color is followed by a big, sweet nose of black cherries, black currants, cedar, spice box, and subtle oak. Enormously concentrated and full-bodied with superb minerality as well as tannic structure... (RP)" (12/2008) 96 points Wine Spectator: "A tremendous effort, broad, rich and layered, with creamy oak woven in with ripe currant and blackberry fruit. Full-blown and persistent, offering green olive, cedar and spice notes that gain inte ...Read More »

2007 Hundred Acre "Fortunate Son" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Fortunate Son is a rich, textured wine laced with plums, espresso, spices, new leather and tobacco. Dark Morello cherries, licorice, leather and spices are some of the notes that develop as this racy wine struts its stuff. Subtle floral notes round out the finish. (AG)" (12/2011)

2007 Lillian California Syrah

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Opaque purple. A kaleidoscopic bouquet evokes black raspberry, cola, incense and olive tapenade, with a sexy floral quality that gains power with aeration. Lush, palate-staining dark berry preserve flavors are complemented by exotic spice and violet pastille qualities and are lifted by zesty minerality. Gains weight with air but retains its energy, finishing spicy, smoky and with outstanding persistence. (JR)" (12/2010)
