Black Hills Estate Winery Nota Bene 2007
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.

|Valerie Stride WSET ADV rated this wine as 4.5/5 with the following review:|
A blend of 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot, and 15% Cabernet Franc, this 14.7% abv wine was one of my favourites. With medium plus intensity on the bouquet, notes of raspberry, cherry cola, cassis, and sweet tobacco shone through. I also loved the hint of peppery spice. On the palate, this wine has a good tannin structure and good intensity. The palate was most interestingly a mix of leather, earth, purple plum, and cherry - all well integrated and working together. The long finish held notes of peppered fruit. Very good. Drink now or age.
