Review:

Wine Enthusiast 94 Points: This reserve-level Cabernet-made from grapes sourced partly from 35-year-old vines-is lovely in its wealth of detail. A brambly, elegant mouthful of berry and cherry flavors mingles with a note of rose petal. The finish is soaked in graphite, with length, grip and finesse. - Paul Gregutt

2008 Vintage

2008 Wine Spectator - 95 points - Vivid and broad, delivering a vibrant mouthful of berry, cherry, mulberry, red chile pepper and tangy spices on an open-textured frame. The finish sings a whole chorus. This has depth, persistence and charm. Best from 2013 through 2020. - H.S.

2007 Vintage Tasting Notes

2007 Wine Advocate - 93+ points - The 2007 The Albatross is composed of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Kiona Home Block planted in 1975, and an unusually high 34% Petit Verdot, also from the Kiona Vineyard aged in 100% new French oak. Purple/black in color, it puts out an alluring bouquet of wood smoke, mineral, herbs, incense, violets, balsamic, and blackberry. Dense and loaded with fruit, this large-scaled, full-bodied, backward offering will require considerable patience from those who purchase it. It will benefit from 6-8 years of cellaring and will provide a drinking window extending from 2016 to 2037."

66% Cabernet Sauvignon from a Red Mountain vineyard block planted in 1975. 34% Petit Verdot. 120 cases made.
