2007 Robert Craig Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #500441
Aroma's are intense, gorgeous aromas of blackberry and black currant followed by dark chocolate, vanilla bean and creme de cassis. Flavors consist of an explosion of juicy, rich Mt. Veeder black fruit underlain with more cassis, pencil lead, cocoa, and cedar. On the finish: A huge concentration of fruit flows through on the palate, enlivened by bracing acidity and enveloped in refined, sweet mountain tannins. This is among the most ageworthy of our mountain Cabernets. Patience will be rewarded with 20+ years of enjoyment. Decanting recommended.

ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: Interestingly enough, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder was also closed. However, it didn’t take long to coax some spice box, cedar, cassis, truffle, and chocolate out of the aromas. In the mouth, the wine is dense, full-bodied, but again, very tannic, almost atypically so for a 2007. I would forget it for at least 3-4 years and drink it over the following two decades.
WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Firm, rich and chunky, with dense, mocha-laced currant, wild berry and blackberry flavors that are full-bodied and rustic in texture, with a notable mineral and crushed rock quality, followed by a finish that combines tannic strength with fruit persistence.
When Robert Craig first came to Napa Valley in the late 1970’s, he headed to Mt. Veeder in the southwestern Mayacamas range. There he spent the next 12 years learning about mountain vineyards and came to regard Mt. Veeder one of the premiere Appellations for world-class Cabernet Sauvignons. His first Mt. Veeder Cabernet was made in 1993. Fourteen vintages later, the 2007 offering represents perhaps the finest expression of this mountain terroir. The wine virtually leaps out of the glass with luscious fruit, incredibly fine, silky tannins and powerful finish.
