Compendium is Mission Hill second label to Oculus, and is made to be drank sooner and requiring less cellar time than Oculus. The 2007 Compendium is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Cabernet Franc, 21% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, and aged in French oak.
The wine is muscular and concentrated; the nose is very aromatic and inviting; black cherries, blackberries, red currants, sage, black olive, smoke and cedar. Full body with good acidity and silky tannins, everything is well balance here. Long smoky, cedar and pepper finish. Nice wine now but with 1-2 years in your cellar to shed some of its oak and you will get a smooth and comforting wine.
