2007 Dana Estates Helms Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Rutherford RP97/WS96
RP97: The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Helms Vineyard (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) has turned out even better than I predicted last year. Abundant aromas of black cherries, black currants, cedar, spice box, and licorice are followed by a wine boasting terrific intensity, full-bodied power, and an expansive, long, savory finish with no hard edges. The integration of wood, tannin, and acidity is flawless. This is a riveting example of Rutherford Bench Cabernet Sauvignon that should age effortlessly for 25+ years.
WS96: Slow to unfold, but once it does this reveals a firm, complex and
fascinating mix of dried currant, melted black licorice, rich blackberry,
sage and mineral. This full-bodied red expands on the finish,
where the flavors unfold gracefully, ending with ripe tannins. Best
from 2012 through 2024.-J.L.
Stored in temperature/humidity controlled cellar since purchase.
