We are very excited to have three incredible new releases from Page Wine Cellars available for you. All of these are produced in small quantities, allowing winemaker Bryan Page to create some truly unique and flavorful wines. If you have not experienced a wine from Page Wine Cellars yet, now is the time to start!
We will be reviewing the new releases here over the next few days, so be certain to check back tomorrow. But in the meantime, here is the first…
Crafted as a right bank style Bordeaux blend, the 2007 vintage consists primarily of Cabernet Franc and Merlot, which make up nearly three-quarters of the cuvee. The remaining quarter is predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon rounded out by small additions of Petit Verdot, and Malbec. These five varietals mingle flawlessly to create an alchemy of intricate flavors and velvety textures.
It displays an elegant and supple pallet under which the warm flavors of baked black cherries and roasted cacao bean are expressed. Aromas of dark summer berries, cinnamon, and chocolate continue to develop as the wine continues to open in the glass.
This is a wine designed to push the barriers of complexity. 2007 was an astounding growing season, which produced deeply intricate and beautiful fruit throughout the Valley. It is a unique meritage that expresses the full complexity and depth of the incredible fruit harvested. The ’07 PR is drinking beautifully, especially when decanted, but do not be afraid to lay a few bottles down for cellaring. It will continue to develop in complexity and richness for more than a decade.
