"Wine Buying Guide"

2007 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

Just delicious, this wine shows its pedigree from some of the best vineyards in the valley, including Merryvale’s St. Helena estate. Dry and rich in firm but refined tannins, it offers elaborate flavors of blackberries, blueberries and cherries, while 70% new oak adds layers of buttered toast and caramel. Great for drinking now with the best meats and cheeses you can find.

"Robert Parker Reviews Merryvale"

2007 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley

"Another winner is the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa which includes 1% Cabernet Franc. It possesses abundant notes of creme de cassis intermixed with a floral underpinning and subtle oak in the background. Rich and full-bodied with a burning ember/smoky component that adds character to the red and black fruits that dominate the wine, this beauty should drink well for 15+ years.

"This is an impressive group of wines from Merryvale Vineyards, a winery whose offerings I have not tasted for many years."

- Robert Parker
