Codename:

The Power AND the Glory

Boy, oh boy, did we love today’s 2007 Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon from Atlas Peak Wines. Bursting with fruit, earth, and spice, today’s wine has got it all.

Today’s ultra-luxury Cabernet hails from one of the most sought-after vintages in recent memory (Robert Parker himself gave the Napa 2007 Cab vintage a 96 point score). Chock full of lush, concentrated fruit, today’s wine finishes with an elegant silkiness that just begs for a follow-up sip.

Today’s wine drinks beautifully now, but will also age quite well for years to come. Be sure to stock up on enough for both!

Tasting Profile

Look:

Super dark, almost inky scarlet in the glass, with only a subtle lightening at the edge.

Smell:

Rich and incredibly dense, with bold dark fruit flavors leaping from the glass. Juicy fresh plum, blackberry, and currant lead the way, trailed by black cherry, dried Mission fig, dried tobacco leaf, and touches of clove and cardamom.

Taste:

Luxurious mouth-coating flavors of juicy, super ripe fruit greet you initially, which is pretty remarkable for a 2007! Trailing these juicy fruit flavors are dark leather, pipe tobacco, toasty dark baking spices, lightly roasted espresso beans, and super dark baker’s chocolate.

Finish:

Best decanted, this big boy needs some time to open up. The finish is long and lengthy, with flavors trailing for miles. A slight drying appears at the very end, inviting you to take another sip.

Pairing:

A pan-seared Porterhouse, served with butter drizzled overtop.
