($110) Healthy deep ruby. Aromas of black cherry, currant, licorice, menthol and loam, with a more exotic note of sour candy. Densely packed but not particularly pliant or opulent, with an almost peppery quality and firm acidity to the dark berry and sour cherry flavors. Finishes with firm tannins. This is the lower parcel on the property, and these water-retentive soils are typically picked very late-at the end of October in the case of this 2007.

The dense purple-colored 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Jake's Creek exhibits copious aromas of loamy soil, black currants, licorice, unsmoked tobacco, and cedar. With a dazzling texture, full-bodied power, sweet but noticeable tannins, and a youthful, promising style, it will benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age, and should drink well for 25 years.
