The 2007 IX Estate Red is a strikingly deep ruby color and the nose a concentrated elixir of all the wonderful aromatics I love about IX Estate. In 2007, the flavors of the terroir are more dominant than ever. This vintage just has more of everything it seems. Terroir driven flavors of crushed rock, wet graphite, bay leaf and barbecue rub saturate the wine. Aromas of grilled meats, fennel seed, and a lift of black licorice bring seduction to the nose. With a sip, the pliant, silky tannins melt over the palate. The 2007 is dense to the core in every way, but at the same time it is open, expressive and alluring. It will drink well near term with its supple, rich tannins, but patience will be greatly rewarded, as the structure and natural acidity beneath will allow the wine to age 30 years or more.

The staggeringly rich, complex, harmonious, impeccably well-balanced 2007 IX Proprietary Red Estate (1,400 case produced) exhibits aromas of spring flowers, cedarwood, Asian spices, licorice, blueberries, and blackberries. A distinct liqueur of minerals buttresses the full-bodied, massive concentration, giving an overall impression of elegance, purity, and harmony. This is another seamless tour de force in winemaking. It should drink well for 25 or more years.

Classy, intense and vibrant, full-bodied and layered, with wonderful balance, this red delivers vivid blackberry, wild berry, mineral, anise and dusty, cedary oak flavors that are trim and focused, yet expansive, as they unfold. Ends with a long, detailed finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Best from 2011 through 2021.
