Review: **+ Chez Ray Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot, Suisin Valley, California, 2007 (CM7)

Updated review, now six years from vintage date, November, 2013:  This is Chez Ray Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot, Suisin Valley, California, 2007 (CM7), with initial reviews reported here.


Here were original notes: CM7 (2007 Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot, Suisin Valley): Ray: color light red with pink highlights; aroma clean and fresh with blackberries; flavor supple and round.  2+ for friendly. Karin: too tannic.  Eric: Color deep red; aroma very subtle but rich and alcoholic; longer finish, light but frui9ty, not too sweet, 3+.  Rob: color light red; aroma faint alcohol, strawberry; flavor smoother, berry finish, 3.

Still shows as light to medium red, with no opacity.  Bold fully ripe blackberry on the nose.  Bright, easy red and black berry fruit on the palate, brings closing acids up into your cheeks.  Still two stars with a plus.

Another updated review, three more years later, now nine years from vintage date, June, 2016:  Consistent notes and rating.  Still bright.  Hasn't mellowed.  Hasn't tired.
