    Winemaker's Notes:

    Above the fog line at 1,500 feet, this is an incredibly beautiful, yet stressed vineyard that produces trademark Mt. Veeder characteristics. Dried cherry, dried herb, briar patch, tobacco and tea aromas are complimented by plum, wild cherry and forest floor flavors with pronounced tannins and a long finish. This is a wine that I think has incredible cellaring potential, but as 2007 is my first vintage with this fruit, we'll have to be patient. However, this wine, like all my wines, should drink well upon release too.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A lovely Cabernet, brimming with complex blackberry, cherry, mineral, tobacco and cedar flavors that impress for their sheer power. Shows the firm, hard tannins this mountain always lends Cabs, but they're so finely ground, the wine is drinkable now with a good decanting. Should age well for a decade.

    Part of a collection of single-vineyard wines Mario Monticelli makes for the Trinchero Family, this is a foresty cabernet, intriguingly ripe and extensively oaked. The pungent mineral tannins have softened up in the oak, the wine lush and delicious, pareticularly with lamb.

    The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Cloud's Nest, which comes from a parcel on Mt. Veeder, displays a dense ruby/purple color, like most of the other wines, and plenty of truffle, mineral, and earthy notes intermixed with blackberry and cassis fruit as well as some Chinese black tea. The wine is dense, full-bodied, but again, relatively tannic and backward. This is a fascinating wine that needs 4-5 years of cellaring and should drink 20-25 more years. Impressive.

    Nicely balanced wine. Smooth. Not quite as spicy as I would have liked but good. Would do it again.
