"Dense ruby/purple-colored with notes of blueberries, blackberries and incense, this impressively endowed wine exhibits full-bodied richness, opulence and exuberance as well as a clean, pure finish. Approachable now, it should be drinkable in 5-6 years, and last for 15-20." (12/10)
"In 2007, the Van den Bosch family was blessed with the arrival of their first grandson, Roman, to whom this vintage is dedicated. That same year also blessed Napa Valley with one of the most perfect growing seasons in recent memory, and the results are extraordinary. Our 2007 Alante Cabernet Sauvignon is the most beautiful example to date of what makes our little vineyard so special: its signature ability to create wines that seamlessly unite power with elegance, rich concentration with exquisite refinement."
"The moment this pure, single-vineyard Cabernet hits the glass, its charismatic personality is obvious. The rich, effusive aromas are initially dominated by concentrated ripe fruit: blackberries, sweet raspberry syrup, black cherries, and boysenberry puree. Significant notes of dark chocolate soon follow. As the wine continues to open up with aeration, it offers complex hints of spicy oak, black and white pepper, cinnamon, a touch of licorice, and delicate high tones reminiscent of lavender and crushed rock. The wine's initial impression on the palate is rich and full, with an almost white chocolate-like creaminess. Forward, dark red fruit erupts, and the flavors become those of luscious, chocolate-covered raspberries. At the same time, bright natural acidity provides a distinct sense of balance and finesse."
"Reflecting one of the most consistent characteristics of our vineyard, the ripe tannins that lend structure and substance to the wine are remarkably soft, polished, and velvety for a Cabernet with this level of concentration. The wine finishes with a long, seamless stretch of milk chocolate and sweet raspberries, lifted by elegant notes of spicy oak and framed by a beautifully silky texture. The 2007 Alante is irresistible today, but will also reward careful cellaring for another 10 to 15 years." -Winery
