Reif Estate 2007 First Growth Cabernet Sauvignon
This is the gem of the 2007 First Growth series of wines from Reif, it's ready to drink now (with a little decanting) but could easily age a decade or more with beneficial results. Aged in a mix of 70% French and 30% Hungarian oak, all new, for 30 months. This is a fruit driven Cab with both red and black fruits on the nose. The palate is where this one really shows its mettle, red starts the show and ends black with good spice, pepper and silky tannins taking part in the intermezzo right thru to the finish. Nice balance, this one is both really sippable now and really ageable for later enjoyment; but don't just take my word for it, for godsake, don't forget to age some of this and try it out for yourself. Price: $50.00 - Rating: **** 1/2+
