WA 90 WE 91 Pts. -According to the Wine Advocate - The 2007 Oroppas (92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc) exhibits a more tannic structure as well as notes of cedarwood, roasted herbs, bay leaf, red and black currants, licorice, and toasty oak. It requires 2-3 years of bottle age, and should drink well over the following 20 years.
According to Wine Enthusiast - Continues a string of successful bottlings of this Cabernet. The flavors are strong but subtle, suggesting blackberries and black currants, with earthier notes of dark chocolate and roasted almonds. Very good, but also pretty tannic. You’ll want to cellar this for 5–6 years to let it mellow
According to Wine Spectator - This tight red delivers flavors of herb, mocha, espresso and dried currant on a full-bodied palate, picking up touches of roasted herb and cedar on the finish.
Winemakers Notes - Rich and concentrated, this wine opens with aromas of black plum, vanilla, brown sugar and cinnamon. On the palate, flavors of black currant, roasted coffee and bittersweet chocolate are wrapped in velvety tannins. Rated 90+
