Clos Pegase Napa Valley 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon, $39,99-$44.99, 93 points, appeared a much brighter ruby trending more Bordeaux red than previously reviewed California Cabernets in this series, but ended with a leggy glass wall and a clear rim.
The nose of lovely lilac and sweet cooking spice with just a hint of earth was quite good.
Flavors of black-berries, cola, and mint were carried along on a medium-plus body of good acidity and mostly resolved tannin which only became noticeable on the long finish of the trailing palate with spice and some heat (14.9% alcohol).
