91(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January 2009

(a blend of 85% cabernet sauvignon and 15% cabernet franc):  Bright red with a pale rim.  Still reticent nose hints at redcurrant, pomegranate, graphite and cedar.  Softer and more approachable than usual for young Sassicaia, with fleshy, easygoing flavors of redcurrant, cassis, balsamic smoke and vanilla.  A seamlessly ripe, broad and long wine, finishing with smooth, very peppery, balsamic tannins and a trace of alcoholic warmth.  The acid spine is hidden by the glossy, ripe fruit, but there¬ís plenty of it here; in this respect, the 2007 Sassicaia is not unlike other vintages with similar growing seasons, and reminds me of the 1997 at the same stage of development. I still feel that this vintage of Sassicaia will be remembered for offering early accessibility and perhaps possessing a little less concentration and depth than some recent great releases such as 2001 and 2006. However, do not make the mistake of attributing this to a hot year:  unlike in more sun-drenched parts of Tuscany, 2007 was not an excessively hot vintage here.  I also noted less bottle variation when I tasted this wine three times in November than I did in my tastings between April and August of 2010.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon built its reputation on Bordeaux's Left Bank. Here, in the district of Medoc, the varietal is the key component of blended wines that also may include some Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and even Malbec and Petit Verdot. Moving slightly south, Cabernet Sauvignon meets Merlot in roughly equal proportions in the red wines of Graves. In both of these Bordeaux regions, the top bottles...
