'The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a bolder, slightly minty nose with a dark core of dusty fruit that is slightly stewed, similar to a compote. Still expressive, the nose shows great depth with many lively layers. On the palate, the wine shows great focus and precision with dense, chewy blackberry tones. The tannins are silky, while the wine shows balance with energetic acidity. Full-bodied and with a long finish, the wine is at a nice spot now but will continue to age for a couple more years.' – Anthony Mueller, Wine Advocate, 92/100 (Oct 2019)

'Iconic label shows the usual understatement in 07, cassis fruit, sanguine & spice notes; plush centre cushions sturdy (for softer vtge) tannins, extends the finish. As always, structure to improve many yrs. 20 mths oak, 50% new.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5*

'Full medium red-ruby. Cassis, licorice, wild herbs and spices on the inviting nose. Then ripe and sweet in the mouth, with good juicy definition and lift to the cassis and spice flavors. Finishes with sweet, well-buffered tannins and lovely persistence. Always an ageworthy wine but this vintage also offers plenty of early appeal.' – Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, 91/100

'Rich but precise, with a gorgeous beam of mulled black currant fruit backed by fig cake, loam and mint notes. The long, velvety finish stays well-focused.' – James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, 91/100

Producer information The name Thelema comes from the Abbey of Thélème, a place dreamt up by François Rabelais. He was a monk, a doctor and a writer in sixteenth-century France and his utopian Abbey went against the religious ideals of the day. Rabelais’ motto was ‘laughing and drinking are the proper characteristics of man...for by wine we become divine.’ Since Rabelais spent a lot of time thinking about and writing memorable quotes on wine, Thelema saw it fitting to name their vineyards after him.
