Lot 116 Napa Valley Mt. Veeder Oakville Rutherford Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes: Deep, dark brooding Cabernet, ruby-plum color with deep crimson rim. On the nose black currant hits you right between the eyes with cassis intermixed with blackberries, chocolate, and damp earth. Nuances of moist underbrush are braced by cedary oak and excellent fruit purity. Despite its 10/30 weight structure this wine has charming texture, accompanied by bold acidity and rich mid-palate tannins. With a lingering finish and full-bodied elegance, this Cabernet is nostalgic of some of Napa's most concentrated, structured, and long-lived wines. Cameron Confidential: From an $85 bottle program and the virtuoso wine maker that brought us Lot 133 Atlas Peak Chardonnay, this primary blend comes from a completely custom facility in Napa. Sourced from some of the best vineyards in Mount Veeder, Oakville, Rutherford, and Spring Mountain, this wine receives continual 91- to 93-point scores. It does sit at the high point of our pricing at $22 but is absolutely worth every penny. Remember: You are not getting leftover barrel lots but the actual bottling blend from an $85-per-bottle program. I hate to say this again, but Lot 116 is certainly among the Top 5 Cabernets we have ever released. Recall also that 2007 is now being touted as the best on record for Napa Valley since 1999. If you haven't figured this out yet, the 2007 Napa Valley sub-appellation Cabernets from CHW are all going to be in the top ranks of the wines we have produced.
