2007 Cannonball California Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #500233
The 2007 Cannonball Cabernet Sauvignon presents a lively, dark ruby color, like burgundy velvet. Aromas of fresh berries, spice, and pepper with a faint background of vanilla oak are very much reflected in the mouth. Full and rich with bright acidity, the berry and spice flavors are boldly presented along with racy, red fr uit and vanilla-cherry on a layer of cocoa. The finish is classic Cannonball, smoothe, long, delicious. We recommend enjoying between now and 2011 to really get the most of the big fruit., but really let the wine open up in your glass to experience all the layers and complexity. For those preferring a more mature and mellow style, decant for one hour before serving.

The 2007 was a great vintage for cabernet in the North Coast and throughout California. Mother Nature gave us a mild winter followed by a dry spring pushing the grapes to be gin ripening earlier than usual. The summer was cool and temperate, until late August, when the heat arrived. Thinner skinned varieties were harvested quickly, but thick-skinned Cabernet, Syrah, and Merlot handled the heat beautifully, and flavors continued to develop through a cooler September with light, intermittent rains. By the second week of October, harvest, part II, kicked into high gear as grapes needed to come in before heavy rains began at the end of the month. It wasn't the most typical year in terms of weather, and the crop was pretty light, but one of the best vintages of the decade in terms of quality - intense fruit development, silky tannins, great acidity.
