2007 Salon Cabernet Sauvignon

$125.00   per 750ml bottle

This 2007 Swanson Salon Cabernet Sauvignon was not fined or filtered, in order to maintain full flavor intensity and texture. The nose exhibits very ripe black currant, blackberry, notes of espresso and French oak. In the mouth, sweet fruit and ripe, silky tannins lead to an extremely long finish; with ripe cassis fruit remaining long after the wine is swallowed. The wine is profound, with many layers of depth. Although it drinks quite nicely now, it will continue to age gracefully through at least 2025. This 2007 Swanson Salon bottling is classic Oakville Cabernet at its very best.


Wine Profile

Vineyard Notes
This wine was sourced exclusively from our favorite blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot at the historic Schmidt Ranch Vineyard, located on benchland in Oakville on the western side of the Valley, along the Mayacamas Mountains. The well-drained alluvial soils consistently produce a small crop of very intense, concentrated fruit.
