Description

Scion wines have consistent characteristics: the use of fruit grown on select sections of our estate vineyards where the vines are rooted in well-drained, non-vigorous, volcanic soils; the use of 100% French oak barrels (approximately 40% of which are new each year); and the “hands-on” skills of only one man, Kevin Warren, the Robert Young Estate Winery winemaker. Consequently, Scion wines have repeatedly received enthusiastic reviews from wine critics, the wine trade, and our customers alike.

Winemaker Notes

Robert Young Estate Winery 2007 Scion is inviting- a classic Cabernet Sauvignon. It has aromas of dark fruit, blackberry pie, black cherry, golden brown toast, and dried fruit, with a hint of pepper and spice. The wine itself is clean and well incorporated with round, almost sweet tannins, and good acid. Built for aging. This is an exceptional vintage.

Tasting Notes

The 2007 Scion is a deep, radiant garnet in color and immediately releases aromas of dark, luscious berry pie, plums, and a hint of black licorice. The palate is soft and clean with strong barrel notes and great tannin structure built for aging. This vintage is strikingly reminiscent of the 1997 Scion, our flagship wine released ten years ago. After a decade's worth of Scion vintages, we are proud to offer you this wine.
