The 2007 La Mission Haut Brion a candidate for wine of the vintage exhibits a dense ruby/purple hue along with notes of melted licorice blueberries cassis burning embers and charcoal sweet tannin medium to full body a fleshy mouthfeel and an endearing succulence as well as lushness. Already appealing it should continue to evolve and drink well for 15+ years. It is a great success for the vintage.

Complex aromas of black raspberry mocha smoke licorice minerals and flint plus a whiff of caramel. Juicy spicy and penetrating with lovely cut and intensity. Leaner than Haut-Brion today but this is essentially a supple wine despite some evident minerality and the fact that the cabernet sauvignon component here actually had a slightly higher pH than the merlot. Finishes with rather fine tannins. This is actually a hair higher in acidity and lower in pH than the Haut-Brion 2007.

The color is dark opaque purple with a perfumed spring flowers blackberries roasted coffee and a secondary nose of pavement and gravel phenols. The wine is medium-bodied and is balances the fruit with fine ripe tannins. Ripe black cherry and black berry fruit with savory olives in an attractive polished mid-palate that expands with ripe fine grained tannins on the finish.
