Review:

Wine Spectator 95 points and "HOT WINE" for 10-5-2011!!

1 bottle in stock.

Supple, almost satiny, with gorgeous cherry, raspberry and rhubarb flavors mingling with hints of clove and rose as the finish sails on and on. Offers impressive depth and length. Drink now through 2018. From Washington. - H.S.

For lovers of Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine was built for you! Composed of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Syrah, it is dark, rich, and built for a long life in the cellar. This wine was aged for 23 months in 60% new French oak. Composed of all free-run juice, it is black in the center, dark red to the rim. This wine smells like a bowl of plums and black cherries, surrounded by fresh ground coffee beans. It is rich and ripe in the mouth, with flavors of currants, more cherries and blackberries, and surrounded by a cloak of finely grained tannins. The natural acids frame the finish, giving this wine the ability to lay down for a decade or more! - the winery

2007 Vintage Tasting Notes

Wine Advocate 92 points!

Wine Advocate - The 2007 The Illusionist is a blend of the 5 principal Bordeaux varieties and Syrah aged for 22 months in 33% new oak. It gives up an aromatic array of toast, pencil lead, tobacco, spice box, violets, black currants and black cherry. Dense on the palate with lots of stuffing and enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years, it will offer a drinking window extending from 2013 to 2022.

Sleight of Hand Cellars began in 2007 coming out of the chute with some superb values, wines which are easy to spot on retail shelves because of their bright, magician-themed labels. - Jay Miller
