($275) Good full ruby-red. Vibrant aromas of deep black raspberry, licorice and violet; quite expressive considering it was bottled about a month prior to my visit. Then dense, deep and very primary, with powerful yet suave flavors of blackberry, smoke, licorice, minerals, chocolate and earth spreading out to saturate the palate. An infant today but the wine's superb persistence and finishing perfume suggest it will rank among the best vintages of this bottling. If there is ever a classification of Napa Valley cabernet vineyards, the Eisele Vineyard would clearly be a grand cru.

Perhaps the biggest shock here was the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Eisele Vineyard. My first notes were, "A change of style?" This wine looked sensational last year, but while lacking the power, concentration, substance, and depth of the greatest vintages, the wine came across as restrained and low key. I rarely see such dramatic shifts as noticed with the 2007 Eisele Vineyard. We will see - wines do go through unusual states, and this has been a remarkable Cabernet Sauvignon from one of the great heritage sites of Napa Valley for nearly 40 years, so one has to give it the benefit of the doubt, but I am calling it the way I tasted it.

I think WS was a little hard on this wine. Firm with some green flavors that are a pleasant alternative to the big fruit of most of the '07 Napa cabs. The finish was a little thin, though, and it doesn't merit the high price.
