Hundred Acre 2007 Ark
Cabernet Sauvignon Ark


100ξpoints, (Issue #ξ192ξ-ξDecember 2010)

A perfect wine, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Ark Vineyard (1,300 - 1,400 cases) from Howell Mountain is one of the great efforts from this high elevation terroir. It offers notes of burning embers, black raspberries, blueberries and flowers, a full-bodied opulence, wonderful intensity, but the wine is not weighty or overripe. Fleshy and voluptuous with terrific floral notesξit should drink well for 15-20 years.
