2007 Montelena Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
Nose The huge powerful nose captivates with layer on layer of spice, cedar, earth, and tobacco all over a rich base of ripe black cherry, black currants, cassis, and blueberry jam.
Palate Rich round juicy and mouth coating the palate delivers black cherry and black currant before moving on to brighter red fruits. More subtle tones of butterscotch, anise, and sweet oak complement the fruit beautifully.
Finish The huge classic structure of fine grain tannin and firm acidity persist all the way through to the clean crisp spicy finish.
When we talk about vintages here at Montelena, they are often categorized as “hot” or “cold,” and very occasionally there are the years like 2007 that because of their ideal conditions earn the tag of “Goldilocks.” Warm spring conditions lead to earlier than normal bud break, while the moderate temperatures in summer and early fall further extended the growing season, resulting in long slow ripening with fantastic flavor development and near perfect juice chemistries.
