The 2007 Backus Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon boasts aromas of licorice, violet, espresso beans, blueberry syrup and exotic spices. The texture and silkiness on the palate are seamlessly interwoven with concentrated layers of perfectly ripe tannin and fruit. Notes of minerality and sweet oak linger on the long finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Backus Vineyard boasts a stunningly pure nose of blueberries and blackberries with notions of toast and flowers in the background. Thefloral nature of the fruit only adds to the wine's complexity. Full-bodied but civilized, this wine's tannins can be borderline rustic, but that's not an issue with this glorious, full-bodied, opulent 2007 Napa Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink it over the next three decades..

Wine SpectatorA stylish, elegant youngster, with vivid mocha-covered raspberry, blackberry, red and black licorice flavors. Full-bodied and notably complex, tight and focused, ending with a persistent beam of flavors and firm tannins, with a dash of tobacco and cedar. Best from 2011 through 2022.

Wine EnthusiastShows the Bacchus profile of ripe blackberry and cassis fruit, pure, strong tannins and exceptional balance. It's a dry, classically structured Cabernet of enormous complexity and interest. So delicious now, it's tempting to drink, but it's way too young. This is a wine to cellar, and it should blossom over the next 20 years.
