Continuing a legacy which began with Carter Cellars inaugural release (a 1998 Coliseum Block Cab that, "picks you up and shakes you," - James Laube), our 2007 Coliseum Block Cabernet is another in an impressive line of well-behaved brutes. Big and massive with loads of purple fruits like plum, blackberry and blueberry. Dried herbs and spices linger in the nose leaving a long and silky finish that lasts to the next sip.
"As rich as Napa Cab gets. Made solidly in the modern style, it’s soft, elaborate and flamboyant, suggesting ultraripe blackberry pie, currant, mocha-choca and sweet oak flavors."
"The compelling 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Coliseum Block even eclipses the brilliant 2006. Opaque purple to the rim, with a gorgeous perfume of violets, licorice, blueberries, and blackberry liqueur, this backward, formidably endowed, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon possesses a multilayered texture, juicy, sweet fruit, loads of tannin, and well-integrated new oaks."
