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.

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. 1,480 cases made.

I love big, young Cabs, but this one is just too big and rustic for me. I actually liked it better on opening than I did after decanting for an hour. Aromas of plum, cedar & coffee. Good, firm body and density, but a bitter coffee flavor comes out on the finish.
