Carter Cellars Revilo Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2007


Tasting Notes

An immediate attack on the senses. A dark ruby color leads a nose that is full and rich with dark fruit wafting from the glass alongside a touch of flinty clay. Soft and seductive over the palate and concluding with a silky finish and subtle oak overtones from fine French barrels.

" This is a big, rich, dramatic Cabernet. The underlying fruit is spectacular, offering tiers of blackberries, black currants and cocoa, while 100% new French oak aging lends strong, but balanced, layers of toast. The tannins are ripe and sturdy, yet very finely ground. Really a beautiful example of the modern style, and should develop over the next six years."95 Points ~ Wine Enthusiast

"Bright, deep ruby-red. Cassis, minerals and spices on the nose and palate, along with a whiff of loamy earth. Then juicy and penetrating, with firm acidity serving to intensify the wine's flavors."

90 Points ~ Stephen Tanzer

The History of the Revilo Vineyard

Revilo Vineyard is located off of Silverado Trail by the Meadowood Resort and a stone’s throw away from some of St. Helena’s famous vineyards.  Its clayey soil was farmed and named after Reg Oliver, (Revilo backwards), the owner of El Molino Winery who passed away in 2004. While you might know of El Molino for their stellar Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays, Reg did an incredible job farming his Cabernet vineyard, and his daughter Lily continues the tradition.  Their efforts helped pave the way for Carter Cellar's great success with the Revilo label.
