Tasting Note:

For some reason our visits to Calon always seem to be first thing in the morning when our palates are tinged with coffee and toothpaste, but it never seems to make the slightest difference to our enjoyment of these wines. The 2007 (which is blended from 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Merlot and aged in 100% new oak) is no exception, offering as it does piercingly fresh high-toned blueberry and blackberry fruit on the nose, robed in fine minerals and backed by a warm oak structure, while on the palate there is compact blackcurrant, crunchy and tense with a coating of coal dust and fresh acidity. Medium weight, long and balanced, the palate finished on high, fine tannins. A very good effort.
