- Worthy Sophia's Cuvee Napa Valley 2007 Product #25702 (In Stock)
Worthy’s Sophia’s Cuvee is the second wine of Axios, a Napa “cult Cabernet” producer best known for its $125 flagship Cab. It’s been one of our best-selling Napa Cabs ever since its 2001 debut vintage earned 92 points and a place on Wine Spectator’s Top 100 list. Since then, it’s been a super-reliable bottle of Napa Cab with ripe, supple, currant, smoke and green herb flavors and a darkly fruited finish.
Now, the 2007 vintage has arrived and there’s been a BIG step up! Maybe it’s just the vintage – 2007 is one of the best ever in Napa – but this Worthy is exploding with black currant, blackberry and black plum fruit sweetened with a generous dash of sweet baking spice and a sprinkle of dusty cocoa and shaved bitter chocolate. Mouth filling and rich, the 2007 Worth remains graceful and elegant and oh so easy to drink. A winner and a great value.
"The 2007 Sophia’s Cuvee (a 8,000-case blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec) is a big-time sleeper of the vintage. An outstanding example of Napa Bordeaux varietals, it displays loads of white chocolate, creme de cassis, licorice, and a touch of subtle smoke in a medium to full-bodied style. Silky tannins, flesh, and plenty of concentration characterize this wine, which has no hard edges. It is a beauty to drink over the next 5-7 years."Wine Advocate 90 points
