The Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon is red-purple in color with a bright hue at release. Ripe fruit aromas of black plum, blueberry and cherry mix with a bouquet of toasted pastry, anise, and vanilla from a year of barrel aging. Mature and round on the palate, the cool 2011 vintage has a high toned fruit signature and soft finish.
Notable for its zesty, spicy, dill- and mocha-scented oak, this is intriguing for the wood alone, with a firm mix of extracted dark berry, gravel and herb notes. Drink now through 2025. 912,000 cases made. -JL
