Bodegas El Nido

"The 2007 Clio is made up of 67% old vine Monastrell sourced from avineyard planted in 1944 and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon from a vineyardplanted in 1979. The alcoholic fermentation is in oak followed by ML innew barrels and aging for 26 months in new French and American oak. Aglass-coating opaque purple color, it displays an in-your-face bouquetof wood smoke, underbrush, incense, blueberry, and black currant.Dense, chewy, packed and stacked, the fruit quality is superb, thebalance impeccable, and the finish lasts for nearly a minute. It willbe controversial with those who prefer low alcohol and finesse in theirwines. Those who like unrestrained power and richness will adore itquite aside from the fact that it over-delivers for its relativelymodest price. Drink it from 2011 to 2022."

Morlet La Proportion Doree

"One of the most profound blends of Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and in this case, 2% Muscadelle, is the 2007 La Proportion Doree (64% Semillon, 34% Sauvignon Blanc, and 2% Muscadelle). An extraordinary nose of waxy, honeyed grapefruit, melons, figs, and quince is superb. In the mouth, a liqueur of rocks intermixed with quinine, quince, and waxy notes continues to cascade over the palate. This is a sensational, dry, incredibly complex wine that shows the potential that blends such as this can achieve. Drink it over the next 4-5 years."

Quintessa 2007

"There is a sense of sophistication and well-managed ripeness that seem a constant in the best Cabernets of the vintage, and both are apparent in this complex and very well-crafted wine. A nice splash of sweet oak highlights the very keen curranty fruit in its aromas and continues on as a sympathetic partner to themes of cassis and black cherries in the wine's lengthy and beautifully proportioned flavors. Ageworthy by dint of its balance rather than for forbidding astringency, this is one tohide away for at least a half dozen years and more."

"The 2007 looks to be one of Quintessa's stronger efforts in a number of years. Dark ruby/purple, with sweet black currant, cherry, and loamy soil notes intermixed with some subtle spice box and background oak, this wine is rich and medium to full-bodied, with round, silky tannins, and an attractive set of aromatics. Very accessible and drinkable now, it should age nicely for 15 or more years." -Robert Parker

"A very fine Cab from the estate, which is in the north-central part of the Rutherford appellation. Judging from the tannins, it’s too youthful to drink now, with a tight, astringent mouthfeel and fleshy, unintegrated oak. But the flavors are extraordinary. They flood the mouth with the essence of Cabernet, with ripe blackberries, black currants, raspberries and mocha, and the spicy finish lasts for a full minute. Give it until 2013, and it should provide great drinking through 2019, at least." -SH

Valle Reale Montepulciano D'Abruzzo

"The 2007 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is impressive in the way it coats the palate with masses of dark fruit, flowers, tobacco, chocolate and cinnamon. This full-bodied, generous Montepulciano will drink beautifully for at least several years. Hints of chocolate linger on the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2017. "-Antonio Galloni
