2007 Cabernet Sauvignon The vintage 2007 will be remembered as one of the best of the decade. This wine is a delicious blend of our Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Black Raspberry in color with aromas of blackberry, currant, and layers of sweet toasty French oak. Perfect ripeness allowed for a wine of great depth and structure, flavors that mirror the nose, and a wine while tasty now, will age beautifully. The mouth feel has a lovely combination of power with extreme silkiness and flavors that carry a long time in the finish. A great example from our Estate vineyard here in St. Helena. Read more

2007 Growing Season

The 2007 growing season was about as close to textbook as we could hope for. A warmer than normal Spring led to early budbreak and fruit set. Vineyard soils dried out early due to below average winter rainfall and vine canopies were therefore kept in check. The summer was mild with very few days over 100 degrees. The mild, even temperatures and the early start to budbreak led to a long growing season which allowed our Cabernet, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot grapes to ripen slowly and evenly. Harvest took place over a four week period with our first Caberent coming in on September 12th and our final pick of Cabernet Franc on October 11th. The fruit quality was obvious and we knew we had something very special early on in the fermentations.

Accolades

Revana Cabernet Sauvignon 2007
97 points
Aromas of roasted herb, red pepper and sage are complex,
elegant and spicy, joined by ripe currant, plum and black cherry
fruit, but this is at its best on the full-bodied palate, where the
texture is supple, graceful and polished. Drink now through 2020.”
