Bevan Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Showket Vineyards 2007
WA95+: Also enormously impressive, but more backward and in need of bottle age is the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Showket Vineyard. This opaque purple-hued Cabernet exhibits classic notes of creosote, creme de cassis, licorice, and cedar. It is a relatively massive wine (as one expects from these hillsides that also produce the superb Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Francs from the Dalla Valle winery). This deep, broad, enormous 2007 needs to be forgotten for 5-6 years, and drunk over the following three decades. These are very impressive efforts!
