Long Shadows Winery
2007 Chester-Kidder

Chester-Kidder 2007 - Wine Enthusiast - Cellar Selection

 "Released up to a full year later than the other Long Shadows reds, it is well-integrated and focused, with a high-toned black cherry fruit set in dusty tannins. Scents of sandalwood drift through, along with cocoa and spice. As good or even better than the outstanding 2006."



Chester-Kidder 2007 - Wine Advocate

"Aromas of pain grille, mineral, pepper, meat, incense, violets, blueberry, and blackberry inform the nose of a dense, layered, succulent wine that will benefit from 2 - 3 years of cellaring. This tasty offering will deliver optimum drinking from 2013 - 2023."



Chester-Kidder 2007 - Stephen Tanzer's Intl. Wine Cellar

 "Medium red. Lovely Old World earthiness on the nose, along with brown spices and red rose. Then fresh, suave and layered in the mouth, with enticing floral lift to the dark berry, licorice, mocha and mineral flavors. The really spreads out to saturate teh palage, but with perfume rather than weight. Finishes very long, with broad tannings, harmonious acidity and hints of mocha and pepper. A beauty."
