DeLille 2007 Grand Ciel Cabernet Sauvignon (Red Mountain)

Tight, young and somewhat impenetrable, this pure Cabernet from the estate vineyard on Red Mountain is tannic and sharp. The fruit shows cherry and cassis, and the alcohol (listed at 14.9%) is mostly contained. But it's a hard wine, and does not seem to have the complex aromatics that promise more detail with age. Drink it now, for its pure, young fruit and match it to a thick, juicy steak. Paul Gregutt
