95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate may be one of Ric Forman’s finest wines to date (keep in mind he was producing some of the great Sterling Cabernet Sauvignons of the early 1970s). The 2007 is a slightly more voluptuous, flamboyant, and exuberant version of the 2006. The color is a healthy dense purple, and the bouquet reveals plenty of creme de cassis, licorice, wood smoke, and forest floor notes, a soaring, multidimensional, velvety, full-bodied texture, and ripe tannins. The sweetness of the tannins and the wine’s lush, heady texture are reminiscent of a ripe Pomerol. (RP) (12/2009)

93 points John Gilman

The 2007 Cabernet from Forman Vineyards is not quite as aromatically developed as the very expressive 2008 version, but may be holding even greater potential for down the road. The nose is still in the midst of blossoming, but shows outstanding purity in its black fruity blend of sweet dark berries, cassis, cigar wrapper, cool eucalyptus, dark soil tones, a bit of espresso and a whisper of new wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and very refined in profile, with a fine core of fruit, ripe, measured tannins, fine focus and grip and a long, ripe and well-balanced finish. This is no shrinking violet in terms of octane, but I like the backend balance here better than in the 2008 Cabernet, as there is absolutely no signs of heat and the wine is beautifully complex and classy. 93+ (7/2018)
