2007 Meteor Vineyard Perseid- 3 pack

2007 Meteor Vineyard Perseid- 3 pack

Meteor Vineyard Perseid marries the elements of our clonally diverse planting in one singularly expressive wine. The universal praise for the 2007 vintage in Napa Valley is well justified. The 2007 vintage produced wines of considerable power coupled with ripe and supple fruit character. Our 2007 Meteor Vineyard Perseid is deeply colored with a vibrant hue leading towards ruby red violet rim. On the nose, aromas of plum, fresh blackberries & black cherry compote mingle with sandalwood, sweet tobacco and bittersweet chocolate. The palate is rich and supple with firm assertive tannins and a complex mineral driven finish.  725 cases

From the Vineyard Manager - "In 2007, warm spring temperatures led to early bud break with very little rainfall. The summer remained mild with few of the heat spikes typically seen and dry conditions leading to small berries of intense fruit. After a brief interlude of cool the second week of October, Indian summer prevailed, affording us plenty of time to consider the optimal moment for harvest."  Mike Wolf, Vineyard Manager

From the Sommelier - "The sheer volume of notes surrounding the 2007 vintage in Napa Valley attest to the quality and consistency of the wines produced.  Early bud break, low rainfall and even ripening were the norm, with tight, small berried clusters reaching perfection mid October.  What crossed the sorting table was as close to perfection as Cabernet Sauvignon gets. Our first glimpse of the wines post fermentation confirmed this. We knew we had something special."  Jason Alexander, Sommelier and General Manager

From the Winemaker - “Our 2007 Meteor Vineyard Perseid is deeply colored with a vibrant hue leading towards ruby red violet rim. On the nose, aromas of plum, fresh blackberries & black cherry compote mingle with sandalwood, sweet tobacco and bittersweet chocolate. The palate is rich and supple with firm assertive tannins and a complex mineral driven finish.” Dawnine Dyer, Winemaker

From the Critics - "The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Perseid (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) exhibits abundant aromas of crushed rock, charcoal, creme de cassis and subtle smoke in a ripe, full-bodied, exuberant style with terrific intensity, texture and concentration. There is not a hard edge to be found in this pure, dramatic Cabernet. It should drink well for 15 or more years." Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

"Medium red-ruby. Sexy aromas of redcurrant and violet, with an ephemeral minerality that carries through onto the palate. Juicy and spicy in the mouth, with lively acidity framing the dark berry and bitter chocolate flavors."   Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar
