Aida Estate · 2007 · Cabernet Sauvignon
We have been fueled by our belief that Aida would be an ideal site for growing Bordeaux varietals since our acquisition of this wonderful site in 2000. Each harvest has affirmed our initial belief and makes us look forward to the following year.
This 2007 offering of Aida Estate Cabernet opens with a nose of luxurious milk chocolate and chocolate covered cherries followed by ripe blackberries and sweet cassis. On the palate, this harmonious synergy of deep red and black fruits surrounds a structured core of graphite, burning embers and tar. The finish lingers and will have you musing over this wine long after the last sip is taken.
Our 2007 Aida Estate Cabernet will benefit from generous decanting for the next five years and will develop in your cellar for 20+ years.
