To Boldly Go

This wine is one to stock up on, dear Operative! Today’s 2007 Deerfield Sonoma County Cabernet Sauvignon is a very highly recommended wine. If you have not enjoyed a Deerfield wine, now is your chance. One taste, and you’ll see why Deerfield was named our 2013 Winery of the Year.

This delicious wine is one of Deerfield’s very best. This Sonoma County Cabernet is big on flavor, but elegant and soft on the palate.

Robert Rex has outdone himself with this wonderful Cabernet. Of course, he had some of the finest fruit - from one of the best vintages on record, the 2007 vintage. Robert Parker awarded this vintage a decade-high 96 points. We have been doing our best to bring you wines from this important vintage, and we scored big with today’s masterfully crafted blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 6% Malbec, 5% Cabernet Franc, and 4% Petit Verdot.

Tasting Profile

Look:

Darkest burgundy hues with a slightly opaque core. At the edge, a fine ring of maroon encircles the glass.

Smell:

Very sweet on the nose, with aromas of blueberry and blackberry jam that give way to fresh cassis, lavender, fresh violets, slightly caramelized raisin and dried fall leaves.

Taste:

A silky smooth texture delivers flavors of sweet black cherry, blackberry compote, dark dried rose petal, dusty dark chocolate powder and a hint of black licorice.

Finish:

Exceptionally long with fruit flavors that linger especially long at the back of the palate. As flavors fade, the tip of the tongue becomes woody and slightly dry.

Pairing:

Pair this very flexible wine with a wide variety of foods, including roasted duck breast in a plum reduction sauce. A flourless chocolate cake would be an extraordinary treat at the end of the meal.
