2007 Cabernet Sauvignon, Pedregal Vineyard, Oakville
December 2010-January 2011
Vol. 36, No. 6
Medium-dark to dark ruby; attractive, big, rich, intense, cassis and sweet red berry fruit aroma with cedary notes and a hint of pepper; full body; intense, concentrated, cedary, cassis and very ripe black cherry fruit flavors with initial supple, plumy richness and outstanding depth and length; firmly structured; full tannin; turning a bit tough on the finish; lingering aftertaste. May be Ramey's best Cabernet to date. Approachable now though deserving a good five more years of bottle aging. Very highly recommended.
