Gamble Family Vineyards
2007 Paramount Bordeaux Blend
California: Napa Valley
The Sure Thing
Another stunning wine from the stellar, 96 Point 2007 vintage (Rober Parker, Jr.), today’s 2007 Gamble Family Vineyards Paramount is a delicious wine of real elegance and depth.
This wine has been carefully handmade from some of Napa’s oldest and most distinguished vineyards. Rutherford Merlot, Oakville hilltop Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc from an old St. Helena vineyard & Petite Verdot from the slopes of Mt. St. Helena. It has been given the time it needed to become a rare & elegantly-styled wine of great depth and character. 19 months in small French barrels have contributed to the beauty of this wonderful blend.
This wine is living proof that the result is greater than the sum of its parts.
A very deep, dark and secretive-looking wine, revealing itself with the first swirl showing a depth of color that clings to the glass, building anticipation.
Concentrated aromas of blackberry and black cherry give clues to the smoky flavors to follow on the palate. Black currents, leather, spice and violets round out the nose.
A very complex approach of dusty blackberry, smokey plum & cigar box essence fills your mouth. Using the finest French oak barrels have allowed this great wine to age elegantly, protected by silky tannins and great depth of flavor.
An amazing flavor packed finish that continues to thrill - long after it passes across the palette.
