Portfolio 2007 is a wine of power, concentration and texture. It is rich and full-bodied, with fragrant aromatics of sweet cassis, black berries, cedar and incense ending up with a long mineral finish.
95 points, Robert M. Parker, Jr., Wine Advocate (December 2009, #186): “The best wine I have ever tasted from Portfolio is their 2007. An identical blend to the 2006, this vintage is much more impressive, evident in the extra texture, additional minerality, and the extraordinary aromatics of this inky purple-colored wine. Sweet cassis, incense, charcoal, and cedar are all present in this opulent, full-bodied red, which is sensationally concentrated, with brilliant purity and delineation. It should drink well for 15-20 years…”
92 points, Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar (May/June 2010): “…sweet, lush and stuffed with fruit…Finishes with substantial tannins and plenty of supporting sweetness of fruit…”
This sumptuous wine pairs beautifully with prime rib, beef tenderloin, venison stew, braised lamb shanks and other red meats. Will hold 15-20 years.
This wine was recently featured in The California Wine Club's wine of the month club.
