Henry of Pelham 2007 Speck Family Reserve Cab-Merlot
The sign of a good winery is to have wines in any and all major price ranges. Henry of Pelham has everything from their cheap and cheerful quaffers to serious red blends meant to kick around quietly in the cellar for a decade or more. This is the latter kind of wine. The nose is full of smoky raspberry notes, but offers up little other hints as to how the palate will be. The palate echoes the nose in its quietess, preferring to remain as closed as the nose - but in there (currently) are lots of tannins, smoke, cocoa, vanilla, spice, a decent amount of acidity and nice structure ... based on Henry's previous '07 efforts I'm prepared to give this wine a score based on potential and not on its current vibe. Let it sit 3-4 years before deciding to pop the cork and it should drink well into 2017 and beyond. Price: $50.00 - Rating: ****+
