Our 2007 Morisoli-Borges Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is an absolute show-stopper that reflects the extended growing conditions of this exceptional vintage, displaying an elegant lushness of flavor as well as a long, round, and lingering finish.
The power and elegance of the incredible 2007 vintage is augmented by the more classic impression of weight and perfect balance of the fruit. It is a vintage that offers much complexity early and will repay aging, but is already balanced and amazingly-well integrated.
A classic Rutherford wine, the 2007 PHIPPS Cabernet is concentrated and powerful, with a mix of cocoa & subtle coffee notes, dried currant and explosive dusty cherry-berry fruit that’s focused and persistent, ending with firm yet integrated tannins. Bone dry, it shows further herb-infused flavors of blackberries, spices, smoky sandalwood, and yes, the well-integrated tannins are very dusty like you would expect from a classic Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon.
