2007 Levy & McClellan Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1071441 96 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon has closed down slightly since last year. Now in bottle, it exhibits an opaque purple color as well as a similar but more subdued bouquet of lead pencil shavings, burning embers, blueberry liqueur, creme de cassis and flowers. Powerful, rich and pure, its statuesque structure, lavish concentration and formidable tannin levels suggest 3-5 years of bottle age is warranted. This may turn out to be the finest Cabernet Sauvignon produced in the short history of the Levy and McClellan Diamond Mountain winery, although the 2008 has the potential to equal it. The 2007 should last for three decades or more. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2010)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Dark ruby. Slightly high-toned aromas of blueberry liqueur, blackberry, chocolate truffle, licorice and damp earth. Huge, plush, sweet wine with dark berry and black olive flavors saturating the entire palate. Outstanding depth here, more than enough to support the wine's powerful, thoroughly ripe tannins on the resounding, very long back end. This no-holds-barred wine is a knockout now but it's likely to gain further in precision as it continues to absorb more of its baby fat. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2017)
