2007 Guarachi Cabernet Sauvignon

The inaugural wine from Guarachi Family Vineyards. Great choice. The wine showcases what a great winemaker, Paul Hobbs, can do in one of Napa's best years. This is a big wine in a big bottle, and it should share the table with a big steak, perhaps a cowboy ribeye. Highly Recommended. DH

2007 St. Supery Élu

The nose is full and sweet, with blackberries, boysenberry, and a drop of caramel. The palate is filled with a melange of dark fruit, from deep mulberry to crisp blackberries. A hint of smoke peeks out on the palate, blossoming into a bite of espresso and unsweetened chocolate on the mid-palate. Tannins are dusty and mouth-filling. Acids are bright enough to hold up to the fruit and tannins. This should do very well in the cellar for ten years or more. The finish lingers. Drink with local lamb chops. Highly Recommended. DH
