Sparkman 2007 Kingpin Cabernet Sauvignon (Red Mountain)

Cellar Selection

The most massive, dense and ageworthy of all the Sparkman reds, this Kingpin Cabernet is a barrel selection of the darkest, deepest wines in the cellar. Almost pure cassis fruit is matched to a firm, steely spine. Tannins are strong but not heavy, and the aging in two thirds new wood has not turned the wine terribly oaky. Hints of rock, tobacco and earth promise more flavor development over the next decade. Paul Gregutt
