Robert Craig Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

[93 pts Robert Parker] Interestingly enough the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder was also closed. However it didn’t take long to coax some spice box cedar cassis truffl e 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.

Robert Craig’s winemaking philosophy is that Cabernet Sauvignons should be made with minimal intervention, so that unique vineyard qualities are displayed in the finished wine. Distinguished by concentrated varietal character, appealing aromas and intense fruit flavors, these Cabernets are balanced, integrated and luscious upon release, while offering great potential for long-term aging. The Robert Craig Winery is located at 2300 atop Howell Mountain, overlooking Napa Valley. The winemaking regimen is undertaken with great care and attention to detail. Each vineyard block is monitored as harvest approaches to assure the proper degree of ripeness, and grapes are picked in small lots. Individual lots are processed separately during fermentation in order to maximize color and character development and closely manage the influence of tannin. Frequent pump-overs in early fermentation produce full extraction of the fruit while providing ripe, round tannins. This small-lot format expands the blending options, allowing for fine-tuning of the wine style. All Cabernets are aged in French oak barrels to gain added complexity. Read less

WS 94pts. - WA 93pts. According to the Wine Spectator: 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. Drink now through 2022. According to the Wine Advocate: 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. This is the best group of wines I have ever tasted from Robert Craig Winery. Not only is there not a single disappointment in this portfolio, but these are all noteworthy wines...
