2007 is the fourth vintage of Carmel’s premiere blend, Carmel Limited Edition (previous vintages in 2003, 2004, 2005). The 2007 Limited Edition contains classic Bordeaux varietals sourced exclusively from the Upper Galilee, aged separately in French oak barriques for 15 months and then blended together to produce this wine. This is a concentrated yet restrained blend that is flush with fruit and backed by a welcomed earthiness and pockets of toast. The mouth is supple and velvety with silky tannins that are so cleverly interwoven. Acidity is a bit low and it somewhat flattens the wine on the mid-palate, but overall this blend is graceful, elegant and enjoyable. Drink now and for the next 4 years. L’Chaim!
