Black Coyote Wines
2007 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
California: Napa Valley
I’ll keep this review brief, dear Operative, as this wine is about to sell out…
We give this extraordinary wine our highest recommendation and encourage you to act very quickly. We only have a few cases left and once we sell out, this wine wil be gone forever.
Today’s 2007 Black Coyote Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon deserves the stellar 97 Point score that it received from Wine Enthusiast Magazine. It also deserves its place on the magazine’s Top 100 wines of the World list.
This is an exceptionally well-crafted, bright and honed wine, with no sharp edges. On opening, the wine is somewhat narrow in scope, in terms of the fruit-forwardness, but what is there is really exciting and delicious. The longer you decant or swirl the wine, the more elegant fruit emerges.
The winery suggests that you can lay this wine down for 20+ years. We think that it will peak at around 2018.
A contemplative wine, we suggest that you pair with quiet conversation… Or, a Middle Eastern lamb with mild and sweet & savory spice, cardamom, tangerine.
Very pretty with deep garnet hues from the edge of the wine, through its deepening core. Tall, skinny legs start high up on the glass wall before moving very slowly downward.
Complex and super lush. Black fruits meld with dark Italian dried meats, cocoa, brown tobacco leaf, woodsy. Fruits include dried plum, Bing cherry, dried cranberry, sun-dried tomato and soft spice.
Layered and rich, Dark fruit compote, lead by blackberry, dark plum skin, . At the end, subtle dark spice.
Long and plush with medium tannin. Plum and cassis persist alongside subtle spice.
