($85) Good bright red-ruby. Very pure aromas of red- and blackcurrant lifted by flowers and minerals; this almost reminded me of Burgundy Sweet red berry fruit and mineral flavors are framed by an inner-mouth floral character. A very classy 2007, and not at all a shock-and-awe style in spite of its 15.1% alcohol. Finishes with substantial late-arriving tannins and firm acidity. Still a relative bargain in the context of today's absurd pricing for Napa cabernet.

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate may be one of Ric Forman's finest wines to date (keep in mind he was producing some of the great Sterling Cabernet Sauvignons of the early 1970s). The 2007 is a slightly more voluptuous, flamboyant, and exuberant version of the 2006. The color is a healthy dense purple, and the bouquet reveals plenty of creme de cassis, licorice, wood smoke, and forest floor notes, a soaring, multidimensional, velvety, full-bodied texture, and ripe tannins. The sweetness of the tannins and the wine's lush, heady texture are reminiscent of a ripe Pomerol.

Combines power with finesse in a Pauillac-like style, with rich layers of loamy earth, currant, sage, herb, olive, graphite and cedary oak. Firm, focused, taut and balanced, turning supple at points before closing up. Offers a hint of what lies ahead.

Bouquet of wood and tobaco with smoothness of ripe berries and a finish as long as the late summer day.

We were ambivalent. I thought it was a little off-putting with a streak of green bell pepper, but my wife didn't get that at all and thought more chocolate. I would buy again to be sure.

This is a lovely wine at $50...I paid $80!!! No...not worth that Mr. Forman...It's good, don't get me wrong, Cali at the premium level, but not $80.

This is a very fine wine. Dark berries and coffee on the nose and flavor. But what is amazing is how this wine explodes on the finish with the coffee again reasserting itself on a long, expressive finish.

About This Producer


Ric Forman, a legend on the Napa wine scene with his integral role in developing the vineyards of Newton and the great Cabernets of Sterling, established his own brand with a debut 1983 vintage. This first wine exceeded anyone's expectations, and Ric has maintained consistent high rankings for his age-worthy Cabernet and Chardonnay, wines of "finesse" and "elegance." Forman also produces a second label called Chateau la Grande Roche.
