Spiridon 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley
Item Number: 13 21 484 07
What a find!!! '07 was a legendary vintage for Napa Valley Cabs. Very hard to find any left in the market place as they've all been bought up, cellared away and drunk up. But here it is, a perfect specimen. A beautifully mature Napa Valley Cab from 2007. Spiridon is a very small family owned winery in the Oak Knoll district. Cooling breezes from the San Pablo Bay make their way to this south valley region giving the ripening grapes beautiful balance and and added nuance. Aged gently in the winery's cellar for the better part of a decade this killer Cab is drinking at a glorious peak of development. The color is deep and surprisingly youthful. The nose brings a complex mingling of black cherry, plums, foresty humus, licorice, minerality and wood smoke. The palate is silky soft but beautifully vibrant. The flavors play across the palate; black plum, smoke, dark chocolate, cedar, licorice; all lifted by the bright balancing acidity. The finish lingers delightfully with smoky nuance. The best part however is that even though the careful cellaring has already been done for you this wine is amazingly affordable. You will not want to miss it!!
