From an uncharacteristically cool vintage, this elegantly complex and graceful wine rewarded patience and scrupulous selectivity in the vineyard and cellar.
The final wine possesses dark, concentrated blackberry elements and savory, wild sage and herb notes. With a more feminine and lush profile than the similarly cool 2005 and 2000 vintages, the wine delivers its trademark treasure of rich bittersweet cocoa and earthbound flavors, as well as classic Mt. Veeder aromatics of licorice and blueberry.
