International Wine Cellar | 95(+?)

($385; bottled just a couple weeks prior to my tasting; cabernet sauvignon with bits of cabernet franc and petit verdot but no merlot) Highly aromatic nose offers blackberry, cassis and licorice. Sweet and perfumed in the mouth, with a strong violet quality lifting the tight black fruit flavors. Densely packed and energetic wine that's currently dominated by its acid/tannin spine and will require time to express itself. And hiding its flesh today: there's something serious and Medoc-like about this very structured wine, which should evolve slowly. Finishes with substantial but fine-grained tannins and terrific persistence.

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon has closed down slightly since last year. Now in bottle, it exhibits an opaque purple color as well as a similar but more subdued bouquet of lead pencil shavings, burning embers, blueberry liqueur, creme de cassis and flowers. Powerful, rich and pure, its statuesque structure, lavish concentration and formidable tannin levels suggest 3-5 years of bottle age is warranted. This may turn out to be the finest Cabernet Sauvignon produced in the short history of the Levy and McClellan Diamond Mountain winery, although the 2008 has the potential to equal it. The 2007 should last for three decades or more.
